Man accused of shooting at vehicle along Central Expressway arrested after leading police on chase

A 28-year-old man accused of shooting at a vehicle while driving along N. Central Expressway early Sunday morning was arrested after he reportedly led authorities on a high speed chase in Richardson and Dallas.

Dallas police said this started just after 1:30 a.m., when Lajon Fitzgerald Martin went up to three people who were eating in the 2400 block of N. Haskell Avenue.

Martin reportedly tried to talk with them, but the people didn’t want to talk with him, so they left the area.

As they were northbound on N. Central Expressway, police said Martin followed them and shot their vehicle.

The chase went back into Dallas along N. Central Expressway, where Martin was taken into custody.

No injuries were reported as a result of the pursuit and arrest.

Martin was taken to the Dallas County jail. His charges were not released.
