Dallas County man charged, allegedly shot at police during chase

A Dallas County man is facing 13 felony charges after authorities say he fired at law enforcement this weekend and led officers on a lengthy chase.

Nathan McElroy, 32, was charged in Greene and Dallas counties with several serious crimes including first-degree assault, vehicle hijacking, robbery and armed criminal action.

According to a probable cause statement in the case, law enforcement in Dallas County tried to pull over a pickup truck Saturday in which McElroy was the passenger.

The statement says McElroy fired at least two shots at Dallas County deputies and Buffalo Police Department officers before hopping in the driver’s seat of the truck and speeding away.

McElroy allegedly “T-boned” a Buffalo officer’s vehicle. He then led law enforcement on a chase through Dallas, Polk, Webster and Greene counties.

During the course of the pursuit, the statement says McElroy stole and abandoned two other vehicles (one of which was occupied). 

According to the statement, the pursuit ended after McElroy traveled back into Dallas County and stopped on Highway 38. McElroy allegedly stepped out of a vehicle and brandished a firearm, at which point he was shot by law enforcement.
