RICHMOND, Maine (WABI) - A search is underway in the Richmond area for two Connecticut men who police say are armed and dangerous and led officers on a high speed chase late last night.

Police say the two may be traveling with a woman identified as 26-year-old Hailey Goeltz.

According to authorities, 32-year-old Christopher Farrow and 29-year-old Dayshawn Middleton fled into the woods on Route 201.

Police say they are suspects in a shooting that occurred on Norton Street in Skowhegan back on September 4.

According to Skowhegan Police Chief David Bucknam, the men were visiting with a Skowhegan man when they got into a fight around 10 p.m.

Shots were fired by all three men, Bucknam said, and the two visitors took off.

Tuesday’s pursuit started in Waterville when officers tried to stop a vehicle thought to be driven by a man wanted in Connecticut on robbery charges.

The vehicle continued to Clinton then to Augusta at speeds police say topped 100 miles per hour.

Authorities tell us the vehicle was at times in the wrong lane forcing other cars off the road.

Police say the chase continued to I-295 before the car got off the Richmond exit.

After a trooper tried applied the PIT maneuver to stop the car, and the two men got out and fled.

We’re told the trooper suffered minor injuries.

If you see either of these men, police say you should call 911.
