POCOMOKE CITY, Md.- Three men are facing federal charges following the robbery of a Worcester County bank and subsequent shooting at an Accomack County sheriff's deputy, authorities said.

According to the Worcester County Sheriff's Office, all three men were arrested in Norfolk, Va. and charged with attempted capital murder, among other felony charges. They are being held without bond in the Accomack County Jail.

The arrests end a search that lasted more than a week after police say the men threatened to blow up the PNC Bank on Linden Avenue in Pocomoke City, before leading a chase down Route 13 into Virginia. The sheriff's office said the suspects fired at an Accomack County sheriff's deputy, disabling a patrol car, near Bloxom. They were last seen on Delmarva on Turkey Run Road near Mappsville.

Due to the multiple jurisdictions the suspects traveled through, the sheriff's office said the U.S. Marshals and Law Enforcement officers from Worcester County, Pocomoke City, Accomack, Norfolk, and Newport News came together to apprehend the suspects.

The suspects were identified as 28-year-old De'Andre Breshon Ayres, 21-year-old Demetrius Perry, and 23-year-old Lamond Perry, all from Norfolk. In addition to attempted murder, they are charged with shooting from a vehicle, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, use of a firearm in commission of a felony and shooting at an occupied vehicle.

As of Wednesday evening, Maryland had warrants on file as well pertaining to the bank robbery. 

The investigation continues, and according to Accomack County Sheriff Todd Godwin, additional arrests are expected.
