DENVER -- Denver Police confirmed an attempted murder suspect was taken into custody after a standoff in Park Hill Thursday morning.

The incident began earlier in the day, police indicated, with a driver failing to pull over when a Commerce City officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop.

A high-speed chase ensued, with the suspect eventually exiting the vehicle and fleeing on foot in the area of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Ash Street. The suspect appeared to be barricaded  inside a residence, with police setting up a perimeter in the area for about an hour before locating the suspect and taking him into custody without incident.
