(Newser) – The Dougherty gang's time on the run was the stuff of movies—and the details of the siblings' capture are no less colorful. As reported yesterday, the sister was shot in the leg: It apparently happened as Lee Grace Dougherty ran through a field, armed with an automatic pistol that she pointed at a cop. Brothers Ryan Edward and Dylan Dougherty Stanley also fled; one was spotted hiding in bushes by construction workers, one of whom tackled and detained the fugitive until police arrived, reports Fox31 Denver.

Police found a MAC-11 machine pistol, two AK-47 assault rifles (which they used to fire at cops during yesterday's chase), and a handgun outside their crashed Subaru, and report that they'll be extradited from Colorado to Florida as soon as possible. The trio is scheduled to appear in Pueblo County Court this morning. The Tampa Bay Tribune managed to get some priceless comments from Lee Grace's fiance (that's right), who says his plans of marrying her "are probably over" because "by the time she is out of jail, I will be in a diaper." He did note, however, that he will visit her, and says he will bring her favorite doll to her, should she want it. (Read more Dougherty Gang stories.)
