UPDATE:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A man is in custody after getting shot at by a Leon County deputy and leading law enforcement on a car chase.

Around 1:15 Sunday afternoon, the Leon County Sheriff's Office says deputies responded to a domestic issue at Cascades Park. When they arrived, they say they surrounded 22-year-old Calvin Abdul, who tried to get away in a car and almost ran over a deputy.

The Sheriff's Office says a deputy fired shots at Abdul, but it didn't stop him. He led Leon County deputies and Tallahassee police on a chase.

When he finally crashed the car, Abdul fled on foot. Law enforcement finally caught him not far from the crash scene.
