DENVER — Denver police surrounded an area of northwest Denver after a suspect fled from officers during a traffic stop, the Denver Police Department confirmed.
A large police perimeter was set up near Federal Boulevard and 38th Avenue about 8:30 p.m. Friday. No civilians were allowed in or out of the area. Police helicopters were also seen in the air.
The search ended about 10:30 p.m. with no arrests, police said.
Emergency radio traffic seemed to indicate the possibility that the suspect was wanted in connection with a homicide, but DPD only noted that the suspect was wanted on “an out of state warrant.”
#MEDIA UPDATE: 38th & Federal area has been cleared. Suspect was not located. No other updates will be provided.
