Armed suspects remain on the run after leading police on a high speed chase Easter morning.

According to a police lieutenant, officers were called to Academy and Palmer Park near the vacant Village Inn around 11:20 a.m. Sunday, where people in one vehicle were firing at another car.

The first car took off when police pulled up to the scene, setting off a high-speed chase across eastern Colorado Springs. About 4 miles into the chase at Powers and Airport, an officer tried a tactical maneuver with his cruiser to stop the suspects, but crashed and damaged his car.

“[He] tried to take them out and disabled his car,” the lieutenant told 11 News.

The officer’s car was rendered undrivable and had to be towed from the scene. The suspects used the opportunity to flee the area.
