One of female suspect is dead. Another was taken to the hospital, and is in critical condition.

Officers responded to a call of a stolen car in Littleton involving four suspects. When police spotted the vehicle, the pursuit went through Englewood, where an off-duty officer joined the chase as speeds reached as high as 100 miles per hour, before stopping in Denver with the shots being fired.

Bullet holes were visible in the side of an Englewood police vehicle.

Denver police said they cannot say if the suspects fired first or event at all yet, since the investigation involves several jurisdictions and will take time to complete as a result.

Three separate pit maneuvers were attempted by police before they could get the car to stop.

Nearby Santa Fe Drive, and the area around the shooting scene, was closed much of the morning for the investigation, but has since reopened.

Two male suspects were not in the car when it reached Denver, and remain at large. A description of them is not yet available.
