A man was taken into custody after a short chase that ended at a Greenville County school Thursday afternoon.

Master Deputy Laura Campbell of the Greenville County Sheriff's Office said that deputies responded to a dispute at Emerald Commons Apartments on White Horse Road just after 1 pm. after receiving a call from a woman who stated that a black male was in her apartment pointing a gun at her "baby." When deputies arrived, they observed a Chevrolet Tahoe driven by a man matching the suspect's description leaving the complex.

Campbell said that deputies began to follow the vehicle and learned that it had been stolen from Atlanta. As deputies were following the vehicle, the driver turned onto Burdine Road and wrecked the vehicle.

The suspect fled from the wreck scene on foot toward Berea High School. Deputies pursued the suspect and took him into custody on the tennis courts at the high school.

Campbell stated that the sheriff's office K-9 unit was called to the scene to search for the gun that the suspect had allegedly used in the dispute. The gun was found along a path that the suspect used to flee from deputies.

During the course of the investigation, deputies learned that the baby the woman was referring to was her 22-year-old son, Campbell said. Four other people, including a one-year-old child and two-year-old child, were found in the Tahoe when it wrecked. None of the people were injured and the children were turned over to a family member of the female passenger.

Campbell said that the suspect's name and any charges that may be filed were not immediately available.
