DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Police and deputies surrounded a Volusia County neighborhood with guns drawn searching for an accused killer who led police on a chase Thursday.

Authorities said Ian Maddox crashed a car into a home on Derbyshire Road, and then ran away.

Maddox is accused of opening fire at The Circus Bar in Daytona Beach over the weekend, killing one man and injuring two other people.

The chase started when police spotted him driving and tried to pull him over.

"About a minute later, he had a good lead on all the cops, and I see all the cops come flying by," said witness Scott Moore.

Although Maddox is still on the loose, police said he led them right to one of the area's most wanted suspects.

Kenrick Hodge, who was riding with Maddox, was wanted for a number of car break-ins at a local auto mall.

Authorities said Hodge also ran after the crash and his in a nearby home, but they were able to track him down.

"Even though we didn’t come up with our murder suspect, we did get a guy who's out there neck deep in all the stolen cars coming from the auto mall," said Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood.

Chitwood said he is confident Maddox will be caught.

"You can't outrun an arrest warrant. Never seen it happen in my 27 years. So sooner or later he's going to be sitting out at the branch jail," Chitwood said. "You got to consider this guy armed and dangerous. He's gonna do what he's got to do to keep perpetrating his nefarious activities."

Chitwood said there’s a $5,000 reward for anyone who provides information leading to Maddox’s arrest.
