COLORADO - It was a dramatic ending to a crime spree in central Colorado.
Two suspects are taken into custody after multiple carjackings, shootings and a chase.
Police say this started as a traffic stop on lookout mountain. A man and young woman inside a white Crown Victoria reported as a suspicious car. The officer took the driver's license and headed back to his car.
Jacki Kelley, Jefferson County Sheriff's Officer, said, "when he went back to his car to start to run the name of that person, the white Crown Vic took off."
Police did not go after that driver. About 30 minutes later police say the pair carjacked a Subaru with three people inside near Buffalo Bill's grave.
Jacki Kelley said, "the male and female got out of that white Crown Vic with weapons and took their car by force"
Not long after that - police say the suspects broke into a home, then stole a truck. It quickly crashed. The couple got out on foot. Police reported gunshots in the area. The female suspect was taken into custody, the man kept going towards another home on Rockland Road.
Jacki Kelley said, "he finds his way into the house I don't know if he broke in or went in through an unlocked door. He backed out of the garage taking out their garage door and stealing their Envoy"
It wasn't long before that Envoy was stuck in the mud near I-70
Jacki Kelley said,"he makes his way out to I-70 where we know he points his rifle at multiple cars on I-70 stopping cars stopping traffic trying to carjack again."
With the help of a few good Samaritans along the roadway that suspect was taken into custody. Police say he had a rifle and handgun on him.
