MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — A man is in police custody after stealing an ambulance Friday morning.

During his getaway, the suspect traveled through neighborhoods in midtown and caused a wreck that left three people injured. He also reportedly rammed a police patrol car.

A shot was accidentally fired by Mobile police during the chase.
