NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Two men and a teenager are in custody after a wild chase Monday morning.

A police dog ended up catching up to one of the suspects, bit him and stopped him from getting away just west of Germantown.

Police were looking for the trio in connection to an overnight shooting in Madison.

An officer spotted the suspect's car on 11th Avenue and Jefferson around 1:30 a.m. Monday.

Police say shots were fired at a Madison man from the same car around 11 p.m. Sunday. The man was not hurt.

When police spotted the vehicle, they say two people jumped out of the vehicle, which led to the chase with the dog.

A juvenile and the driver were taken into custody. The third man was taken to the hospital for a dog bite.

The shooting victim gave police a solid description of the getaway car, leading to the arrests.
