Stilwell Police said Cain shot at a house, or at someone, and drove away. They said the spotted a suspect vehicle that matched the description and tried to pull it over but the driver sped away.

A chase began, which weaved through Stilwell, and the county, before Cain crashed, OSBI said.

"Keep on the lookout for T.J. Cain. We do have a felony warrant for him, so if they see him or know where he may be, we encourage you to call OSBI or Stilwell Police or Adair County Sheriff's Office," said Dale Fine with OSBI.

Cain managed to get away and law enforcement is still looking for him. They said he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Police did recover the vehicle Cain was in, which is being processed.
