GRENADA, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is looking into a deputy-involved shooting over the weekend in Grenada County.

Sheriff Alton Strider says Robert Salley, 44, of Gore Springs is currently in the Grenada County jail following his arrest.

Salley is accused of leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase that started in Webster County Saturday afternoon.

It started at a checkpoint when Salley broke through and ended on Pleasant Grove Road.

Strider says a Webster County deputy shot Salley in the shoulder during the pursuit.

Charges are still pending against Strider.
