SEMINOLE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A multi-agency manhunt ended with two arrests after nearly eight hours of searching in Seminole County on Monday.

The search came after a high-speed chase Sunday night. Multiple shots were fired at officers before the two suspect bailed out of their car. Law enforcement officers set up a perimeter around the area where the two suspects took off.

Joshua Ray Hudson, 23, of Oklahoma City and a 15-year-old female were located and arrested just before 3:30 p.m. Monday. The manhunt was the result of a police chase that started Sunday around 10:15 p.m. with a Sac and Fox police officer.

The driver of white PT Cruiser was said to be driving more than 100 miles an hour when the Sac and Fox officer spotted them. Investigators say the driver sped up when the officer tried to stop him.

"After about a mile the first shot was fired from the suspect's vehicle striking the windshield of the sac and fox officer vehicle," said JT Palmer, Undersheriff Pottawatomie County.

Undersheriff JT Palmer estimates the pursuit lasted close to 40 miles through Pottawatomie and Seminole Counties with sporadic gun fire aimed at law enforcement vehicles. More than a dozen shots were fired Sunday night, hitting two Sac and Fox vehicles. Neither officer was injured.

Stop sticks in Seminole blew out the PT Cruiser's front two tires, but the driver continued another 10 miles before the car broke down. Then Hudson and the 15-year-old girl took off into the woods.

"As the officers were exiting the vehicle they went under fire, three to four more rounds, where a second vehicle was struck," said JT Palmer, Undersheriff Pottawatomie County.

At dawn, teams of trackers began their search through the wooded terrain. By 3:19 p.m. the two were spotted lying in an oilfield yard. Seminole County Sheriff Shannon Smith told News 9 Hudson and the girl traveled about three miles from where they abandoned their car.

Scratches covered their bodies from running through the woods, according to Smith. Medics treated Hudson and the girl at the scene and at the jail before they were booked.

Both are now in the Seminole County jail, charged in both Pottawatomie and Seminole County, with shooting with intent to kill. Hudson's bond is set at $500,000.
