MIAMI (AP) - Authorities say a South Florida police chase ended with one man shot and several people in custody.

According to reports, the chase began Friday morning and involved several police departments. The Miami Herald reports that the pursuit ended when the driver made a sharp U-turn by the Palmetto Expressway and crashed into a fence. The driver ran from the car and jumped over the fence, leaving other suspects behind. Police eventually caught the driver and arrested the suspects at the site of the crash.

Witnesses and video of the chase confirmed shots fired at the crash scene. One suspect was taken to a nearby hospital, but his condition was unknown.

Officials say no officers were injured.
