Suspect behind bars after leading police on chase

- A suspect is behind bars after leading police on a chase through valley streets on Tuesday night.

Phoenix police tell Fox 10 that the chase came to a close in a neighborhood near 91st Avenue and Indian School. It started when officers tried to stop two people during a routine traffic stop.

The suspects failed to stop and police later found one of them, who then led police on a chase. During the pursuit, the suspect tried to ram a police car and then bailed out of their car and into the neighborhood.

Dozens of officers, including K-9's and a helicopter, swarmed the neighborhood to search for the suspect. Eventually, the suspect was taken into custody after hiding in a nearby shed.

The second suspect who was in the vehicle is still on the loose and it's unknown why they were running from police.
