NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

One of Nashville's most wanted men was put behind bars Sunday morning.

Delevonte Nevils was captured after a wild chase. Officers saw him driving a stolen car in the Madison area, according to court records. He sped away and went to a motel on Rivergate Parkway. Police say he ran into a room, dumped a gun in the trash can, and then jumped from the balcony onto the roof of a car.

He damaged the roof of the vehicle, he doesn't have a driver's license, and a bag of marijuana was found in the stolen vehicle, according to court documents.

Officers arrested Nevils on several charges including attempted criminal homicide. Police believe he shot two men at the Haynes Garden Apartments in December. Officers say one of the victims identified Nevils in a photograph lineup.
