A suspect who is behind bars in Indiana after leading police on a chase that resulted in a crash injuring two people is no stranger to the criminal justice system.
Carl Young Jr., 40, was allegedly involved in a domestic disturbance with a woman before reportedly stealing the keys to her Jeep at gunpoint and shooting at the home early Wednesday morning.

Police say they were called out just after midnight to a home on the southeast side of Indianapolis.
Responding officers spotted the Jeep and tried to get Young to stop. Instead, he allegedly kept driving, ran a stop sign and hit a vehicle, injuring a husband and wife inside.
