MOODY, Ala. (WIAT) —  Two men suspected of trying to steal an ATV from a home in Moody and firing a shot at the homeowner led police from several jurisdictions on a chase Thursday morning.

Moody’s Police Chief tells us two men backed a truck up to a home on Park Avenue in Moody and tried to steal the ATV. When the homeowner came outside, the men fired their gun.

The two men then left the house and were spotted by an officer in the area. Police chased the men for about 10 miles on 459 into Jefferson County. The men stopped their car near the Derby Parkway exit and ran away on foot.
