Eyewitness News was there Thursday for the first time Chesterfield County Sheriff Sam Parker saw the video of a high-speed chase that followed a double shooting last week.
He called it a miracle that it ended the way it did.
"It's always a miracle. I definitely could have lost some deputies that day," Parker said. "I thank God every day that none of 'em got hurt."
Deputies said 57-year-old Curtis Gorny shot his ex-girlfriend Olivia Weaver in the face and chest, and her stepdad Johnny Nolan outside the courthouse last week.
They said he pulled a .357 and fired at Weaver's car as they were leaving a family court hearing over a paternity test and child support.
Watching the video of the chase, Gorny is shown, in a gray pickup truck, repeatedly swerving into oncoming traffic on Highway 9 as deputies try to stay with him.
The chase goes on for 15 minutes and 12 miles. At some points, it approached 100 mph, Parker said.
Deputies said Gorny fired at one officer who pulled up alongside him, then threw the gun out the window.
After hitting two sets of stop sticks, Gorny ran the truck off the road. In the video, deputies are shown racing to both sides of the pickup and grabbing Gorny as the truck rolls forward, still in drive.
During the arrest, an officer is seen throwing punches to subdue Gorny. Parker said he was kicking at officers, and resisting arrest.
"He began kicking and swinging, and those things are very dangerous. He had a weapon on the seat, and we're just thankful he didn't get that weapon," Parker said.
That weapon was a 9 mm handgun that was never fired. Gorny is still in jail without bond.
Channel 9 went by the victim's home outside Cheraw on Thursday afternoon.
Nolan, who was shot in the arm, said his stepdaughter, Weaver, was coming home from the hospital Thursday, and she was still very shook up.
"It just happened so fast," Nolan said. "It was eight seconds. We never even knew what was happening."
Nolan said he had a bullet removed from his arm and was OK. He said Weaver would need some surgery but was glad to be coming home.
Parker said he will review the chase video with his deputies, but is proud of his officers, and believes they handled the tense situation correctly.
