PD: Carjacking suspects fired at officers, still on the loose

COLORADO SPRINGS - Police are still looking for multiple suspects who they say stole two vehicles at gunpoint early Friday morning and led officers on a pursuit that was punctuated with gunshots.

The incident began just after midnight, when police say the suspects stole the vehicles in the 2900 block of East Whileaway Circle and drove away.

Officers later found one of the vehicles near Maizeland Road and Academy Boulevard. This prompted a pursuit where the suspects fired multiple shots at police.

The stolen vehicle was recovered, but the suspects were never found.

No description of any of the suspects has been released.
