The carjacking took place just before 5 a.m. in the 15800 block of E. Jamison Drive in unincorporated Arapahoe County.

“A deputy (saw) the vehicle leaving the area near East Broncos Parkway and South Jordan Road, the vehicle (attempted) to elude the deputy when he tried to make a traffic contact,” said Arapahoe County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Julie Brooks.

Another deputy in a patrol car about five miles away and the suspects in the stolen car then got close and then clipped each other, causing the crash at East Dry Creek Road near the intersection with South Yosemite Street.

“His vehicle (made) contact with the back end of the suspect vehicle,” Brooks said.

Five people got out of the stolen car, which was damaged, and then ran off. The deputy then chased a male who had a weapon and the deputy shot him. He was later identified as Hill.
