The DeSoto County Sheriff's Department tells local media that deputies were trying to pull over a vehicle suspected in an auto burglary when Tyler Brunson, 18, and Malik Graham, 18, jumped out. They say Brunson shot at them as they were chasing Brunson and Graham.

Both men, along with three others in the car, were initially detained. No one was injured.

Brunson was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon on law enforcement. Graham was charged with disorderly conduct.

A juvenile also was charged, while the remaining two were released pending the investigation's outcome.

It's unclear if any of the men have a lawyer representing them.
