STEUBEN COUNTY, Ny. -- The suspect in a Spotsylvania County triple homicide, Alyssa Venable, has been captured in New York State, the Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Office announced.

At 5:45 p.m. Thursday, police say they saw a gray 2009 Honda Civic, a vehicle that matched the description of Venable's car, driving on Interstate 86 in Steuben County, New York.

A traffic stop was initiated, but Venable refused to pull over, police say.

A police pursuit began, and a tire deflation device was eventually used by police, causing Venable's car to crash.

She was taken into police custody, and later a hospital as a precaution.

No one was hurt during the pursuit.

The Sheriff's office says New York State Police will be obtaining a fugitive warrant for Venable, as well as arrangements for her extradition.

Steuben County is about a five hour drive south to New York City.

This is a developing story, so anyone with more information can email to send a tip.
