Alabama fugitive Casey White and corrections officer Vicky White are in custody Monday following a police chase that ended in Evansville, Indiana, that caused their vehicle to crash. Vicky White has been hospitalized after a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to CNN.

Police said that law enforcement did not fire shots. It is unclear how or when Vicky White's wound occurred.

The pair, who are not related but may have been romantically involved, had been on the run since April 29. According to police, Casey White and Vicky White had been spotted at a hotel and a police chase later ensued.

“This has ended a very long and stressful and challenging week and a half. It ended the way that we knew it would. They are in custody," Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton said.

Casey White turned himself over to police after the chase, which ended after the car rolled over and crashed.

The manhunt began after Vicky White, who was an assistant director of corrections at Lauderdale County Jail in Florence, Alabama, helped Casey White escape from the jail after she escorted him for a mental health evaluation.

Casey White had faced murder charges. Vicky White was wanted on charges of forgery and identity theft.
