Police set up perimeter off Federal Boulevard after suspect flees traffic stop


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.”
