Around 9:45 Wednesday night, officers with the Colorado State Patrol attempted to pull over a vehicle traveling northbound on I-25 near mile marker 128.

The vehicle refused to stop and attempted to flee CSP officers.

During the ensuing chase, the fleeing car turned into gate 20 at Fort Carson and entered the Mountain Post. At this point, CSP said their officers gave up the chase and Military Police began to pursue the suspect car.

With the Military Police in pursuit, the vehicle attempted to exit Fort Carson by ramming through Gate 1. After attempting to plow through the gate, the suspect vehicle was disabled and suspect(s) attempted to flee on foot.

Military Police were able to apprehend the suspect(s) after they abandoned the vehicle.

At this time it is unclear how many suspects were in the vehicle, as well as why they were initially contacted by Colorado State Patrol.
