A Winston-Salem man was arrested Friday morning after he was accused of leading police vehicles on a 3-mile car chase that ended near Carver High School.

The chase began after police received a report that people in two vehicles — a black Jeep Cherokee and a grey Dodge Challenger — were exchanging gunfire

on 23rd Street shortly after 10 a.m., police Lt. Joseph Doss said.

Officer spotted a black Jeep Cherokee at 23rd Street and Claremont Avenue and and attempted a traffic stop. The driver accelerated, police

said, and officers began a pursuit. They would later determine, however, that neither the driver of that Cherokee nor his vehicle had been involved in the shooting.

The chase continued for about three miles before the driver voluntarily pulled the vehicle over in the 2700 block of Drewry Lane, Doss said.No one was injured.

Steven Devon Fuller, 32, of 24th Street was charged with felony fleeing to elude arrest with a motor vehicle and driving with a revoked license, an arrest warrant

shows. Fuller is accused of driving recklessly at more than 60 mph and running stop signs, court records show. The speed limit on 23rd Street is 25 mph.

Fuller was being held Friday in the Forsyth County Jail with his bond set at $10,000, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said. He is scheduled to appear in

court on July 18. Officers are continuing to investigate the exchange of gunfire and said no further information on that would be immediately released.
