CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- A suspect was killed, two others were apprehended and two more were at large until Thursday evening after a carjacking, chase and deputy-involved shooting on Wednesday morning, the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office said.

Investigators identified the suspect who died as 17-year-old James Daniel Hill.

Two additional suspects were arrested in Denver Thursday evening by an Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office.

The 15-year-old male and 14-year-old female were taken into custody without incident at a location in Denver.

The five suspects were involved in the armed carjacking just before 5 a.m. at East Broncos Parkway and South Jordan Road, and they took off in the vehicle. The victim is believed to be OK, the sheriff's office said.

A deputy was in the area and pursued the stolen vehicle, which went westbound on East Broncos Parkway and eventually onto Dry Creek Road.

Another deputy traveling eastbound on Dry Creek Road saw the stolen vehicle, which attempted to turn right onto South Yosemite Street.

The second deputy turned left onto Yosemite and the patrol vehicle clipped the back of the stolen vehicle, disabling it.

The five fled the scene and a deputy got into a foot chase with one armed suspect. At some point during the chase, the deputy shot the suspect, the sheriff's office said. It was not an exchange of gunfire, officials said.

The injured suspect was taken to a hospital where he later died. The deputy who fired was not injured.

Denver Police Department officers detained one of the male suspects at the RTD University light rail station.

Dry Creek Road was closed in both directions between South Quebec and South Yosemite streets for the investigation. Yosemite was closed between South Alton Way and East Panorama Drive.

The road reopened just after 11:30 a.m.
