BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) - The suspects in a pair of Thursday morning carjackings were taken into custody Thursday afternoon.
The string of carjackings began around 6 a.m. when a female victim told deputies two men fired shots at her while she was driving and took her 2007 Chrysler 300.
Just an hour later, a male victim reported to deputies that two males rear ended his car, fired shots at him and took his 2005 Impala.
Both suspects were located shortly after noon after deputies with the Jefferson County Sheriff Office received reports that one of the stolen vehicles was in Wylam.
When they arrived, a suspect was spotted trying to remove the wheels off of one of the cars, and the other suspect was found sitting in a nearby car. Both were arrested.
In addition to the two cars stolen on Thursday, deputies also found a Nissan that was stolen from Forestdale in August.
Formal charges against the two suspects are pending.
