Lee Grace Dougherty, 29, and her two brothers, Ryan Edward Dougherty, 21, and Dylan Dougherty Stanley 26, had been on the run since Aug. 2 after allegedly shooting at a police officer in Florida during a high-speed chase. Then they allegedly used automatic weapons to rob a bank in Georgia.

Now, according to The Daily Herald of Provo, the siblings are suspected of taking two cars from people at gunpoint in Pleasant Grove, Utah on Aug. 7. Police say one of the stolen cars was quickly abandoned, while they never drove the second car. Instead, the gunman immediately left the car parked and fled in a white Subaru after firing two shots in the air.

The Dougherty's were arrested in Colorado driving the white Subaru on Aug. 9, and are being held on charges of attempted first-degree murder. They also face charges in Georgia and Florida.
