One suspect remains at large in a shooting incident in Rochester that took the life of a former Starke County woman.

Police have arrested William Scroggs, 25, of Delong, and Jason Miller, 34, of Plymouth in the incident.

An autopsy confirmed that she died from a single gunshot wound.

Scroggs and Miller were arrested after police attempted to conduct a traffic stop near Monterey after the vehicle they were driving crossed the center line and was exceeding the speed limit. A ten minute police pursuit ended when the vehicle crashed on State Road 117 north of State Road 110. Miller and Scroggs fled on foot and were arrested. A third man in the vehicle, Roy Bell, 24, of Rochester remains at large today.
