UPDATE: James "Bubba" Schmidt was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia early Tuesday afternoon. According to reports, Marshals spotted Schmidt leaving a pawn shop in the Gallipolis Ferry area and Schmidt tried to run. He was arrested, police say, in a stolen car with Ohio plates.

Since Tuesday morning's chase and shooting, it has been revealed that a woman was with Schmidt when the chase started. The unidentified woman was arrested at the scene of the crash, but Schmidt fled on foot.


There's a statewide manhunt on this afternoon, for an armed suspect who led Wooster police on a car chase, fired shots at officers, crashed his car,  ran away, broke into a house, stole another car, then backed it out, straight through a garage door.

They say the suspect, 33-year-old James Bubba Schmidt, is armed and dangerous, and believed to be driving the stolen grey 2006 GMC Envoy.  Anyone with information or who has seen Schmidt is asked to call 911.
