(CBS/REUTERS/AP) COLORADO - The Florida siblings accused of carrying out a multi-state crime spree including a shootout with Colorado police were charged on Monday with attempted murder along with a number of other crimes.

Lee Grace Dougherty, 29 and her brothers Ryan Dougherty, 21, and Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, were charged in a criminal complaint issued out of Huerfano County, Colorado, where they were apprehended two weeks ago.

Each member of the alleged, "Dougherty gang" now faces four counts of second degree attempted murder among others. Lee Grace has been slapped with more charges than her brothers. She is facing 29 counts.  Ryan is facing 24 counts while Dylan is facing 23 counts, according to court documents.

The three were fugitives from Florida and Georgia when they were spotted in Colorado. They were arrested on Aug. 10 after a high-speed car chase across two counties and a gun battle that ended when the fugitives crashed their car.

The crew made national headlines when they became the targets of a nationwide police hunt after allegedly shooting at a Florida police officer and robbing a Georgia bank.
