    [DGO] Lakeside Stabbing Turns to Pursuit
    An early morning stabbing in Lakeside Thursday triggered a pursuit and ended with the suspect crashing into another car.

    A neighbor who witnessed the stabbing attempted to shoot the suspect's tires, but the suspect kept driving.

    Deputies located the suspect and pursued him for about five minutes.

    The suspect eventually crashed into a female driver with his car on Lake Jennings and the I-8 business route before coming to a stop. She was rushed to the hospital with unknown injuries.

    Deputies had to tase the man in order to arrest him, deputies said. In the process, they saw a gun in the car, but it was unclear at the time who the gun belonged to.

    He is under arrest and faces charges of felony evasion and potentially assault.

    An investigation of the home, right, is ongoing. The homeowner said he felt "blessed nothing worse happened" between his renter, who was the stabbing victim, and the suspect.

    Medics responded to the scene for the woman and the suspect. Both are in the hospital. The stabbing victim was also taken to the hospital.
