MADISON, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Authorities say two people have been arrested following a lengthy police chase during which shots were fired from the suspects’ vehicle.

Law enforcement initially attempted to pull the vehicle over Thursday afternoon on Interstate 29 in southeast South Dakota. However, authorities say the suspects refused to stop, and ended up leading officers on a chase.

The vehicle eventually turned off of I-29, and the chase continued on county roads. The pursuit continued into the town of Madison. At some point, shots were fired from the suspects’ vehicle, according to Madison police.

The pursuit finally ended on 1st Street around 3 p.m. Police say two suspects were arrested, though their names have not been released.

No one was injured at any point during the incident, authorities say. Law enforcement officers were still at the scene Thursday evening processing evidence.

It is still unclear what prompted the initial traffic stop attempt. Dakota News Now will provide updates once more information becomes available.
