A man suspected of shoplifting hair-growth formula from a drug store was shot and wounded by a truck stop security guard following a high-speed chase in northwest Indiana.

Police say 36-year-old Michael A. Holmes of Markham, Ill., faces several charges when he is released from the hospital.

Police say Holmes had a woman and three children in his car Monday night as he led police on a chase at speeds of up to 100 mph from Chesterton to Gary.

Holmes fled on foot after crashing the car. A security guard at the Dunes Truck Stop says he shot Holmes in the abdomen when Holmes reached for his gun.

Holmes remained hospitalized Wednesday morning, but no information on his condition was available.
