Overnight Police Chase Reaches Speeds of 85 mph ThursdayOh, look! Even when no one is actually killed or injured directly by firearms, the rest of the city - in this case at least two cities, because this started in Minneapolis and concluded in St. Paul, MN - we are exposed to greater danger.
An overnight police chase that started in Minneapolis and ended in Ramsey County reached speeds of up to 85 miles per hour Thursday morning.
5 EYEWITNESS NEWS followed the chase using Traffic Management Cameras as a car raced through the metro.
It started around midnight in Minneapolis, when police say they responded to a call for shots fired. (my emphasis added - DG) The chase ended nearly an hour later at the corner of Sylvan Street and Larpentuer in Ramsey County.Officers there used what are called "stop sticks" and a pit maneuver to stop the suspect. Police say one person was taken into custody.
