DENVER -- Police said a suspected robbery and vehicle pursuit ended in four arrests Thursday night.

The Denver Police Department said it started with a home burglary in the area of the 3000 block of South Dayton Court just after 5:30 p.m.

According to police, the homeowners were not home at the time, but someone else called 911 to report the alleged burglary. That's when police said one of the suspects fired a shot toward the direction of the 911 caller.

Police responded and a chase ensued. Police radio traffic revealed the suspect vehicle was traveling more than 80 mph during rush hour traffic on Interstate 25. During the chase, several bystander vehicles might have been hit.

The chase ended at East Evans Avenue and South Adams Street when officers conducted a PIT maneuver. Four suspects were taken into custody and the investigation is ongoing.

"I was downstairs and I heard a whole bunch of sirens -- a lot of sirens -- so I ran upstairs. I thought there'd be an accident," said witness Kris Field, who lives at the corner of Evans and Adams. "There were police cars on both sides of the streets for like two blocks long. To see that many, I knew it was something serious."
