Lee Grace Dougherty: "I deserved to get shot"

Three siblings who led the FBI on a nationwide manhunt are now facing felony charges in Colorado. They're accused of firing at law enforcement during a high speed chase on the interstate yesterday that ended near Walsenburg.

Their attorney waived their advisement this morning at their first court hearing. However, the judge set each of their bonds at $1.25 million.

The suspects are 29-year-old Lee Grace Dougherty and her brothers 26-year old Dylan and 21-year old Ryan. All three facing charges of attempted murder and first degree assault.

Yesterday, a Pueblo County Sheriff's Deputy saw them in Colorado City, a day after they were spotted in Colorado Springs. The suspects led authorities on a high speed chase down I-25 to Walsenburg. They're accused of shooting multiple rounds at law enforcement, before they drove over spike strips and crashed their white sedan.

Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk Taylor says the suspect were armed with AK-47s and a machine gun.

According to an arrest affidavit, Lee Grace told deputies "We weren't trying to hurt anyone." However, later she admitted: "I pointed the gun at the cop. I deserved to get shot."

The siblings are also facing charges in Florida and in Georgia.

They're being held at Pueblo County jail in separate cells. Their next court court hearing is on Monday.
