Aufleger was apprehended east of Stillwater near SH51 and Prairie Road, but not after a high speed chase that went through two counties, on numerous ru- ral roads and several highways. Aufleger, was allegedly in- volved in a shooting incident Tuesday morning at his home in Tryon involving a "white fe- male", Duncan said. "There was an argument in- volving the female and Aufleger. He assaulted her, then fired one shot," Duncan told The Perkins Journal Tuesday. The female in the incident reportedly was not wounded. "When Tryon (police) re- sponded, Aufleger fled in his El Camino with the Tryon unit in a high speed pursuit to Four Corners (US177 and Stt105)," he said. According to reports on the police scanner during the inci- dent Tuesday morning, the sus- pect drove north on US177 "at a speed in excess of 100 miles per hour." Reportedly, he then turned east on County Line Road which eventually dead-ends. Tryon Police Office David Butler, still It must be Homecoming and Harvest Fest!

Officer Butler said that he had responded initially to a re- port of "shots being fired" at Aufleger's residence. While go- ing to the residence he said he saw Aufleger "at the four-way stop sign and when I turned the lights and siren on he acceler- ated and headed west." "I was out of the chase when he rammed me twice. I lost sight of him after that," Butler said. When the suspect was head- ing north on US177, numerous Continued on page 2
