INDIANAPOLIS – A man was arrested Wednesday morning on I-465 on Indy’s north side after he led police on a chase through several counties, police say.
According to Indiana State Police, a black truck with a U-Haul trailer attached came to a stop in the westbound lanes of I-465 near W. Michigan Road after it led officers on a multi-county chase.
It began with Fishers police working an active case near a house when a person of interest jumped into the truck and fled police at around midnight.
Fishers officers followed the truck and attempted to perform a traffic stop. The truck took off from authorities and led them on a lengthy chase through Hancock, Madison and Marion counties, according to police.
At one point, a female passenger was let out of the truck before being taken into custody by officers.
The male suspect fired shots at Fishers officers in the area of 3400 West and 1000 North in Greenfield. Fishers officers did not return fire, ISP said.
The chase continued onto I-465 where the truck came to a stop near W. Michigan Road exit after it ran out of gas. The driver barricaded himself inside the vehicle, leading to standoff with authorities that lasted more than an hour.
Police deployed gas and the suspect was eventually taken into custody just after 3:30 a.m.
Both eastbound and westbound lanes were closed for several hours and were back open by 4:30 a.m., according to police.
