Shots fired while State Troopers pursue suspect near Cheyenne

WYOMING – Wyoming Highway Patrol chased down a suspect who displayed a firearm during a pursuit. The incident ended safely for all with an arrest near Cheyenne.

On July 5, Wyoming Highway Patrol attempted to stop a vehicle on Interstate 25 near Cheyenne. The vehicle failed to stop and a pursuit ensued.

The suspect vehicle traveled on the wrong side of the interstate to attempt to elude troopers. The pursuit came to a stop after a trooper successfully deflated the suspect’s tires by using stop sticks around milepost 17 on Interstate 25.

During the pursuit, a firearm was brandished out a window of the suspect’s vehicle and shots were fired. The driver and a passenger were not injured and taken into custody without further incident.

No law enforcement officers were injured during the incident. The Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation has taken the lead over the case.
