The Adams County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy was running plate numbers at the Valley Hi Motel just before 7:30 p.m. and ran the plates of a black sedan, which had an alert come up with a connection to a Denver homicide.

The driver of the sedan sped off, and police began to pursue. The chase ended near near West 52nd Avenue and Marshall Street, and the driver — a man dressed in black — fled on foot.

Arvada Police issued a shelter in place in the area and called the suspect “dangerous.”

The Denver Police Department’s helicopter and K9 officers, along with Arvada Police and Colorado State Patrol, were assisting.

Perez-Gonzalez was taken into custody early Friday morning without incident, according to the Adams County Sheriff’s Office.
