A suspect of a manhunt in Wisconsin has been apprehended after allegedly firing shots at authorities, according to reports.

Law enforcement officers had been looking for Jared Brendel since Monday, according to ABC affiliate WQOW. He was wanted in connection with a high speed chase near Dallas, Wisconsin, last month.

The Dunn County Sheriff's Office said Brendel was last seen outside a home south of Dallas Monday night with a gun. Deputies went looking for him, but he took off in a truck which was later found stuck in a field.

Then around noon Tuesday, deputies located Brendel again and a chase ensued, WQOW reports.

Brendel was in custody Tuesday afternoon.
