Indiana State Police arrested the man connected with an interstate road rage shooting.

Officers say they took Aaron Di Shon Windom, 25, of Michigan City, into custody Tuesday afternoon.

Windom allegedly fired multiple shots at another car on Interstate 80/94 near Merrillville last Thursday. He also is wanted for crimes in Wisconsin and Indiana.

Police say they saw Windom travelling along I-74 near Crawfordsville, Ind., about 50 miles northwest of Indianapolis when they attempted to pull him over.

Windom gave chase and, according to the Northwest Indiana Times, shot at a semitrailer while being pursued. The driver of the semi was not injured.

Officers laid down stop sticks, puncturing one of Windom's tires and causing him to lose control of his car. He then reportedly ran away and was found by dogs in a nearby body of water. He was taken to an area hospital to be treated for hypothermia.

Police say the Dodge Charger allegedly used in the shootings was stolen during a carjacking in the suburbs of Milwaukee. Windom also is a person of interest in a homicide in Lake County, Ind., and is wanted for several unrelated warrants in Lake County and LaPorte County, Ind.
