His name has not yet been released
Officials say the boy evaded arrest Tuesday morning after a short pursuit involving a county deputy. State troopers and other local authorities later joined a second chase that ended near Leon.
Officials say the boy shot several rounds from his weapon and struck two enforcement vehicles. Some officers were transported for medical treatment with non-life-threatening injuries.
The boy fled on foot. He was later found in a rural farm house and arrested without incident.
