SHERMAN, Tex. -- A search for a shooting suspect ends with one man at large, another in custody, and a car slammed into a fence at Fairview Park.

Grayson County Sheriff's Deputies say the shooting happened off Dripping Springs Road, southeast of Denison. Shots were fired at a vacant vehicle. No one was injured, but authorities were on the lookout for a white Cadillac out of Bonham, possibly headed toward Sherman.

Knowing that information, an officer in Sherman attempted to pull over a white Cadillac registered to a man in Bonham. The man refused to stop and led police on a chase through the city.

The suspect, 28-year-old Cornelious Wilson, ended up on a baseball field crashing through a fence at Fairview Park. The driver's side door was dented in with the side-view mirror ripped off.

Wilson then took off running down one of the side streets. He was apprehended and taken into custody around midnight Monday morning. Police are still investigating if he is the suspect in the shooting.

It is unknown if the shooting and the chase are related.

    He ran because he is a career criminal. I have seen him more behind bars than not. I don't understand why he's still out running our streets. He'll be in the ground before he's in the penn

    To Jess: Just because the guy ran doesn't mean it was because of the shooting. He probably had drugs on him. He could have warrants out for his arrest. The possibilities are endless. Did they find a gun in the car or on him?

    I saw the whole chase and accident happen. Even if he isn't the suspect in the shooting he still put many lives in danger and needs to be punished.

    Put out a description of the man, so we can be on the look out for him, especially for those of us that are in the area where this happened last night.

    I guess they'll be auctioning off a couple of white Cadillacs along with that Beamer!
