GREENSBURG -The St. Helena Parish Sheriff's Office says a man was arrested for shooting at two officers and stealing a patrol car.

Deputies say it happened hours after 27-year-old Dennis Morgan allegedly kidnapped a McComb woman in a late-night home invasion.

He's accused of shooting at lawmen, carjacking the Gloster Police chief and leading state troopers on a high speed chase into Louisiana.

Morgan faces two counts of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer and one count of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. He faces more charges in Mississippi.
