HERMITAGE - Authorities said Wednesday one of the two men connected to a July shooting and multi-county chase had been charged in Hickory County.

33-year-old Ryan Rummans and 34-year-old Ruben Harris were arrested in connection to the July 30 shooting and chase.

Rummans was charged in Hickory County with eight counts, including two counts of first degree assault or attempted first degree assault on a law enforcement officer, four counts of armed criminal action and and two counts of first degree assault. He is being held on a $500,000 bond.

A probable cause statement, obtained by KOMU 8 News Wednesday, said, toward the end of the chase, Rummans fired several rounds out the back window of the stolen car he was driving. The shots were fired while in Hickory County, between Route BB and 515 Road. One of the shots struck the windshield of a police vehicle. Troopers said Rummans then extended his arm out of the window and shot a round into the windshield of a Toyota crossover, driven by a 22-year-old woman with a 10-year-old girl inside. 

Troopers said the chase ended when a trooper made contact with Rummans' car, spun him out, and ended in a ditch.

The chase started after Rummans and Harris were accused of shooting an employee at R.C. Autobody in Callaway County, then stealing a car, and leading police on a more than two-hour pursuit through several counties, before crashing in Hickory County.

Authorities said Rummans and Harris demanded a car from the R.C. Autobody after they crashed a stolen 1997 Toyota on I-70. Two autobody shop employees, Darren Yancy and Ryan Clevenger, gave them the keys to a 2015 Hyundai Genesis, which authorities said did not satisfy Rummans, who displayed a handgun. When Yancy notified police, Rummans shot him, authorities said.

Yancy suffered a serious injury to the leg, and was taken to University Hospital.

Authorities said Rummans and Harris stole the Hyundai, and left the area.

The probable cause statement said a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper recognized the stolen vehicle in Camden County and attempted to pull it over. Rummans then led officers on a pursuit through Miller, Camden and Hickory Counties.

The Camden County Sheriff's Office said the two suspects stopped their stolen vehicle briefly, before speeding off again.

Deputies said at the end of the chase they recovered a .380 caliber handgun on the ground outside the driver's side door of the Hyundai. Rummans drove the car and Harris was riding in the passenger seat, according to authorities.

At the end of the chase, Rummans admitted to an MSHP investigator he was responsible for the shooting and robbery at R.C. Autobody and was accompanied by Harris.
