Matthew Reyes Mireles, 38, led authorities on a pursuit through multiple counties and at one point was driving at a speed of 100 mph. When the chase ended, Mireles jumped from his truck, which rolled into a deputy’s vehicle. The suspect then started walking down the highway, firing shots at officers and a helicopter overhead.
Ultimately, Chucky was released on him.
"Chucky was able to get a bite on (Mireles). He was able to get ahold of him," Salazar said. "Unfortunately, (Mireles) fired several shots. Chucky was struck and died there on the scene."
Deputies also fired, striking Mireles. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
The department is working on funeral arrangements, with full honors, for Chucky.
