CORNING, Calif. - A Corning man was arrested Monday on attempted murder charges.

At around 4:13 p.m. on Monday, Tehama County Sheriff's Deputies responded to reports of a person firing shots from a motorcycle in the area of Valley Vista Drive. 

Authorities identified the suspect's vehicle as a black and red Harley Davidson motorcycle, which was reported seen at the Econolodge in Corning shortly after the incident. 

Deputies found the motorcycle in the area of Highway 99 west and Olivewood Drive and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. However, the suspect on the motorcycle did not stop and attempted to flee the officers and reached speeds over 100 miles per hour.
