2 in custody after Glynn County home invasion

GLYNN COUNTY, Ga. -- Police in Glynn County have two men in custody after a home invasion that left one woman shot in the face on Thursday.

Police were searching for a possible third suspect, but Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering called off the search. Drugs were found, but no gun.

Southbound lanes of the Sidney Lanier Bridge were closed for several hours after the suspects led police on a high speed 25-mile chase. Onlookers report the lanes are now open.

According to the Glynn County Police Department, a woman came home at about 11:45 a.m. Thursday morning and reported finding two men inside her home.

The woman, who is expected to survive, told officers that one of the men shot her in the face and she fled to a neighbors house to call 911. The call initially came in as three males fighting on Godley Road.

Officers were immediately dispatched and the suspects led police on a 25-mile chase with speeds reaching as high as 100 mph.

The men crashed the black Jeep Cherokee they were driving near the Sidney Lanier Bridge and officers said it rolled 7 times.

Officers caught one of the men, whom the victim later identified as the shooter. Another suspect was then caught. The first man that was caught changed his story several times, saying that three males were involved and then said two.

Police searched several hours for a third man as a precaution.

Doering said the gun has not been recovered. Police are still searching for it and it is difficult to search because the area near the bridge is muddy, mucky and the gun is black and can blend in with that.
