Marvin Owens

NEW HAVEN, CT (WFSB) - A man was taken into custody after a pursuit with local and federal authorities.

It started late Thursday morning on Wheeler Street in New Haven.

Police were serving a warrant for 54-year-old Marvin Owens when he tried to drive away from police.

"Individual arrived here at this location. There was a police-involved shooting not by New Haven officers, but the other agency. A short pursuit occurred and ended in Bridgeport," Acting New Haven Police Chief Renee Dominguez said.

Bridgeport Police say Owens crashed his car on Boston Avenue while trying to elude custody and fled the area on-foot, but was later apprehended.

Owens is facing more than twenty charges and could face even more charges.

It is unclear if anyone was injured while police were trying to arrest Owens.

The case is being turned over to the inspector general's office.
