Law enforcement fired a gunshot as Bridgeport police and United States marshals were serving a warrant on Wheeler Street in New Haven Thursday, according to New Haven police.

New Haven police said were they assisting other law enforcement and the person who fired the shot was not a New Haven police officer.

Bridgeport police said 54-year-old Marvin Owens was taken into custody on several charges after a pursuit.

Owens left, got on the highway and there was a chase that spanned several towns, New Haven police said.

Police said Owens had several outstanding domestic violence warrants, including violating protective orders, assault, threatening, reckless endangerment, and more.

He is accused of crashing the car he was driving on Boston Avenue in Bridgeport, where he fled on foot. Officers apprehended him a short time later, authorities said.

Connecticut State Police said their Central District Major Crime Unit is assisting the Office of the Inspector General with their investigation.

There are no reports of injuries. The incident remains under investigation.
