COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — Two suspects were shot during a confrontation with Denver Police after they allegedly tried to elude officers and rammed a police car Thursday night, the Commerce City Police Department said.

Denver Police tried to stop a vehicle car on Interstate 70 and Havana Street about 11 p.m. for a possible DUI and hit-and-run. The car did not pull over and police did not pursue the car.

Officers found the vehicle a short time later parked between two semi-tractor trailers at 56th Avenue and Holly Street in Commerce City.

When the officers approached the vehicle, the suspects tried to ram the Denver Police car in an attempt to get away. Police then shot both suspects.

The two men were taken to a hospital to be treated for their wounds. Both are expected to survive. No officers were injured.
