“Dougherty Gang” Siblings Caught In Colorado – [Denver Post]

Fugitive siblings from Florida were taken into custody in Colorado this morning after they led law enforcement officers on a 100-mph chase. Lee Grace Dougherty, 29, Ryan Edward Dougherty, 21, and half brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26 — called the “Dougherty Gang” — crashed their car. Lee Dougherty was shot in the leg.

The three have been on the run since Aug. 2, when they shot at a police officer who tried to pull them over in central Florida.

Five hours later, they allegedly robbed a bank in Valdosta, Ga. One of them fired an AK-47 rifle into the ceiling as they entered the front door. Another of the trio was armed with some type of machine gun, while the third collected the cash.
