INDIANAPOLIS -- A man accused of firing shots at troopers after a pursuit ended in a crash in Indianapolis Tuesday afternoon is now in custody. 

Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine said a 911 call led Indianapolis Police Department SWAT to Ronald Carson's location where he was arrested. 

The incident started around 1 p.m. when police say Carson crashed near I-465 and Mann Road following a pursuit. 

The driver, identified as Carson, fled from the scene before police arrived, and a responding trooper heard shots fired from the area of the driver, according to Sgt. Perrine. 

Troopers, K-9 officers and multiple other agencies searched the area for several hours. 

Carson was taken into custody sometime around 5:30 p.m. after a 911 call from a witness led IMPD's SWAT team to his location.
