From Edgewater Police Chief John Mackey:

Many Edgewater Residents received a Reverse 911 Call this morning for the following situation:
Edgewater Police are working a case with the Wheat Ridge Police that involves multiple locations this morning.

At 1:50 AM Edgewater Officers heard 7 gunshots coming from the area of 25th and Fenton Streets.

At 1:51 AM Edgewater Officers heard a vehicle crash at 20th and Fenton Streets.

Officers arrived at the crash site and found a black Ford Excursion with extensive damage in the middle of 20th and Fenton and a red Saturn that had collided with the Excursion and the house on the S/W Corner of the intersection.

Three males in the Saturn reported that a B/M about 5′-6″/130 with a red sweat shirt and red shorts that had been driving the Ford got out and started to run. The males from the Saturn grabbed onto the Ford driver although he slipped out of his sweatshirt and began running north on Fenton Street losing a shoe along the way just prior to officers arrival.

Officers from multiple agencies began searching the area for the B/M Ford Driver.

Officers learned that the Ford Excursion was an unreported stolen vehicle out of Wheat Ridge in the area of 35th and Gray Streets. When Wheat Ridge Officers responded to 35th and Gray Streets they located the owner of the stolen vehicle. The owner indicated that he was missing his Ford Excursion and also said that his Dodge Challenger had been broken into and he was missing a handgun.

Officers located multiple shells in the area of 25h and Fenton Streets, and they located a handgun under the Ford Excursion.

The search for the suspect is ongoing.
