Gunman arrested after Rolla chase and shoot out has links to Lawrence County

The suspect arrested in Rolla after ramming through the gate at Fort Leonard Wood, leading officers on a high speed chase, firing shots at officers and running through Missouri S & T campus may have a strong link to crimes committed in Lawrence County earlier that day.

Detectives are following up leads and recovering property from at least two separate burglaries that occurred the day prior and possibly the day of the incident that occurred in the Rolla area.  One of the vehicles used by the suspect in that case contained items stolen from at least two burglaries in Lawrence County.  Those items included jewelry and firearms.

Charges are expected against the suspect but are pending at this time.
