GLYNN COUNTY, Ga. -- Still clearly shaken at what happened directly next door to her house, this mother of three didn't want her identity shown.
"It's scary. You're here out in the country and to have something like that happen right next door is just shocking," she said.
According to police, at around 11:45 a.m. in a quiet cul-de-sac off Godley Road in Sterling, Georgia, a woman came home to find two men inside her house. Police say a scuffle ensued and one of the men shot the woman in the face. Police say the men actually shot her twice.
That's when she ran for help.
A trail of blood shows she went through the yard and straight into her neighbors shed.
Police believe she then tried to flee in her truck, but crashed into a pole. Another neighbor saw her and called 911.
Still with her wits about her, the victim told police the men were in a black Jeep.
That's when the police chase kicked off.
"One of our marked units got behind it, tried to stop it, a chase ensued thereafter and that was probably 25 miles," said Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering.
At times they got to speeds as high as 100 mph. But the Jeep eventually crashed near the Sidney Lanier bridge while trying to avoid police stop sticks. Doering said the vehicle rolled 7 times.
The two men then fled on foot.
But using a helicopter, bloodhounds and manpower police caught both suspects after a multi-hour search.
Albeit great news to hear, the neighbor says it still doesn't erase what happened. It was an act that forever stole this community's sense of safety.
"It eases it off a little bit, but you're still on edge, still worried," she said.
Both suspects remain in police custody. But as of Thursday night, the weapon used had not been retrieved.
Police say the female victim is conscious and was able to help detectives identify one of the suspects as the shooter.
The two suspects have been identified as Joe Demery, 44; and his son Joshua Lachaud Demery, 26. Both men are from Brunswick.
The 35-year-old victim remains hospitalized at Savannah Memorial Hospital.
