MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Two people are in custody after injuring two officers and two civilians during a police chase near the airport Wednesday evening.

Memphis Police Department says Tracey Shaw and Brandon Jones were in a black Infiniti G37 that struck an officer, an MPD squad car and multiple civilian cars while trying to flee from police after being approached at a gas station on Millbranch Road.

During the pursuit, a backpack containing marijuana was allegedly thrown from the vehicle.

After the chaos inside the vehicle, MPD says Shaw and Jones crashed at Holly Ridge and Morningview and tried to run away.

According to an affidavit, Shaw was found in the backyard of a home, hiding inside a 1994 Volkswagon. Investigators did not specify where officers found Jones.

The officers and civilians were all transported to the hospital with non-critical injuries.

MPD says Shaw, the 26-year-old driver, is charged with aggravated assault, being a convicted felon in possession of a handgun, possession of a controlled substance, intentionally evading arrest in an automobile and evading arrest on foot.

He also has warrants for two counts of property theft.

Jones, 29, is charged with possession of a controlled substance and had a warrant for property theft.
