PARKER, Colo. – Three suspects are now in custody after firing at officers and leading them on a car chase in Parker Saturday morning.
Just after midnight, police attempted to contact a known fugitive in a stolen vehicle in Castle Rock, south of town near the Taco Bell off of Plum Creek Parkway. Officers said the suspects fired shots at them before fleeing the area.
Two police officers were injured when the suspect’s vehicle rammed police vehicles in an attempt to escape custody, according to police.
One officer was taken to a local hospital for minor cuts and bruises, and the other was treated for a leg injury and a broken finger. Both officers have since been released.
Police continued to pursue the suspects through Castle Rock onto Crowfoot Valley Road and tried to stop the vehicle for a second time. The suspects fired shots at officers again and then jumped out of their vehicle and fled on foot in the area near Jordan Road and Jordan Court.
One suspect, 20-year-old Gwendolyn Devilbiss, sustained a gunshot wound during the chase and was taken to a local hospital for her injuries. She is currently in stable condition.
A CodeRed emergency mass notification was sent out to over 3,000 phone numbers in a one mile radius near the Clarke Farms subdivision near Lincoln Ave. Residents were later informed that they could return to their homes after police captured all three suspects.
One suspect was identified as 23-year-old Clifford Galley, who police said had multiple warrants out for his arrest including first degree assault on a police officer with a weapon.
The third suspect remains unidentified.
Police continue to monitor the ongoing investigation.
