HARRISON COUNTY, TX (KSLA) - A Shreveport man is in police custody after allegedly robbing an East Texas gas station then leading police on a chase.

Marshall Police Communications was notified of a robbery around noon Sunday at the EZ Mart in the 2500 block of West Pinecrest.

Police say they were told that a witness to the robbery was following the suspect vehicle southbound on Hwy. 43 and relaying the location to dispatchers.

Harrison County Sheriff Tom McCool reportedly located the vehicle at Hwy. 43 South near Cave Springs Rd. and several deputies began pursuing the vehicle.

According to police, the chase continued south through Tatum and the Texas Highway Patrol, Rusk County deputies and Tatum police joined.

Authorities deployed road spikes, causing the vehicle to wreck into a yard. After a brief foot chase, the suspect was taken into custody.

Marshall police say the suspect was identified as 31-year-old Broderick Maximillian McHenry, of Shreveport.

McHenry was booked into the Harrison County jail where he is charged with aggravated robbery, evading arrest/detention with a motor vehicle and additional charges from Rusk County are pending.

"Despite the difficult times we in the law enforcement community are currently facing, our area law enforcement agencies work tirelessly and in concert to make our communities safe. I am proud of the work done today and that this violent suspect was taken into custody before he could injure anyone else," said Marshall Police Chief Jesus "Eddie" Campa.
