Baltimore Police were involved in a high-speed chase with a suspected shooter Friday afternoon. 

The unnamed suspect was caught around noon after he bailed out of his car following a lengthy high-speed chase.

Baltimore Police also said the suspect is potentially involved in two other shootings. One shooting happened Thursday night when police say three people were shot, one of which was killed. The other shooting was earlier this week, but was not deadly. 

Two guns were recovered in the suspect's car.
