WOOSTER, Ohio-- U.S. Marshals captured the subject of a manhunt Tuesday afternoon in West Virginia, the Wayne County Sheriff's Office said.

Wooster police said James "Bubba" Schmidt was seen leaving a pawn shop in Gallipolis Ferry. He was apprehended following a short foot pursuit. A female subject was with him at the time of the apprehension.

Schmidt, who was wanted for assault and aggravated menacing, was spotted at the Wooster Walmart Tuesday at about 1:30 a.m. The Wayne County Sheriff's Office said he got into a vehicle and led deputies on a high-speed chase.

Schmidt fired at authorities, the sheriff's office said. Several cruisers were damaged by bullets, but no one was injured.

He ran his car off the road, broke into a house and stole the keys to an SUV, according to investigators. Schmidt drove off in the 2006 GMC Envoy.

Authorities said they believe he may have also then shoplifted from a Walmart in Coshocton. He was reportedly waving a gun in the store, before disappearing again in the SUV.

The vehicle was found burned in a remote area of Guernsey County. It's believed he stole another vehicle in that county, before fleeing to West Virginia, where he was taken into custody.
