MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Three robbery suspects are in police custody after leading three police departments on a chase.

Horn Lake Police Department said they were called to a robbery of Tobacco Superstore on Goodman Road on Wednesday night at 8:30.

HLPD said two men with handguns entered the store and demanded money, leaving in a white Chevy Impala being driven by a woman.

Southaven Police Department then spotted the vehicle and pursued the suspects into Memphis.

The pursuit ended in Downtown Memphis near Danny Thomas Boulevard and Adams Avenue, where all three were taken into custody.

Tyler Lay, Javon Wilson, and Shikeema Lang were all arrested on robbery charges and are being held in Memphis while they await extradition.

Police said Lay had a gunshot wound in his leg; it's unclear who fired the shot, but police believe either Wilson or Lang is responsible.

Police said Lay faces an additional armed robbery charge for a robbery at Tobacco Warehouse in Horn Lake on June 17.

Armed robbery is punishable by life in Mississippi.
