MITCHELL COUNTY - We now know the identities of all five people arrested in connection with a 10 hour standoff in Colorado City on Monday night.

KRBC, the NBC affiliate in Abilene, says Felicia Diaz and Brandon Emerson were somehow involved and have been charged with hindering apprehension.

With their help, authorities were able to arrest the three other men involved in the standoff.

It all started early Monday morning when a trooper stopped a car for speeding just southeast of Colorado City.

As the trooper approached, one of the three men got out and fired three shots.

After a high speed chase, the trio abandoned their car but were found hours later in Colorado City.

That's when officers surrounded the building and the three men barricaded themselves inside.

Shortly after midnight, the men gave up peacefully.

22-year-old Myron McDonald, Junior, and 24 year-old Christopher Deshawn Johnson, both from Oklahoma City, are being charged with attempted capital murder and felon in possession of a firearm.

McDonald is also facing an evading charge.

Charges are pending against the third suspect, a 16-year-old from Edmonson, Oklahoma.
