NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — Three men have been arrested after a high-speed chase and crash in Boise County following the shooting of a Nampa man.

KTVB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1MIxI5J ) police had been searching for suspects in the Saturday shooting that wounded 26-year-old Kyle Jackson when the chase started near a Nampa home Sunday.

At least ten patrol cars were involved in the pursuit, which reached speeds up to 90 miles per hour, before the suspects in an SUV rolled over outside Horseshoe Bend.

Police say 20-year-old Alberto Chavez shot Jackson, who had reportedly been antagonizing drivers by yelling and waving a red bandanna. Chavez told police Jackson was a member of a rival gang and had slashed his face with a knife.

Two other suspects have also been arrested.

Jackson's condition was unknown Monday.
