A police chase that began in Haverhill, Mass. Tuesday night - prompted by shots fired at MA police - resulted in a vehicle crash on I-93 in Windham and a warning to residents that two men were on the loose.

Soto will also face charges in MA, including 12 counts of intent to murder, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, failure to stop for a police officer and reckless operation.

Haverhill police said in a statement the case started at 9:30 p.m., when officers on patrol came upon an individual firing a handgun from a vehicle "at an unknown target".

Police have charged the only other occupant of the auto, Javonnie Chambers, 21, of Berlin, New Hampshire, with resisting arrest and being a fugitive from justice. All Haverhill Police officers involved in the initial shooting are unharmed, according to the department.

Massachusetts State Police spokesman David Procopio said in an e-mail late Tuesday night that Haverhill police were pursuing a vehicle when suspects from inside it "reportedly shot at pursuing Haverhill cruisers".

Chambers was handed over to MA authorities to face charges there. He will be arraigned Wednesday in Rockingham Superior Court. The auto crashed on Route 111 in Windham.

Chambers agreed to return to MA to face charges of assault with intent to murder after New Hampshire prosecutors denied his request to plead guilty to resisting arrest.

No one was hurt, according to investigators.

Police said they found a gun and two magazines in Soto's Mazda.

The suspects sped northward, onto Route 213 west and Route 93 before they crashed their vehicle near an exit on Route 111 and fled by foot into a wooded area in Windham.
