CLAYTON COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Clayton County deputies are searching for two suspects following a carjacking and deputy-involved shooting.

Clayton County deputies were pursuing a vehicle that had been reported as stolen when the pursuit took them into a residential area where the alleged carjackers rammed into a parked car.

"We were just in the car," said Matthew Allen, a passenger in the parked car. "A car approached at high speed from behind us and just hit us full speed and after hitting us they just took off running."

The stolen vehicle then struck a pickup truck head on. All three suspects fled on foot from the scene.

During the chase, police said one of the men pointed a gun at officers. The officer fired one shot, striking the suspect in the leg.

The man was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Two of the suspects are still on the loose, according to investigators.

The carjacking victims were unharmed.
