INDIANAPOLIS — Three people were arrested by IMPD and one suspect is still at large following a police pursuit that ended in a crash on I-65. One uninvolved citizen suffered minor injures.

According to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, just before 3 p.m. detectives with the Indiana Crime Guns Task Force were conducting an investigation on a shooting that occurred on the east side of Indianapolis.

During the investigation, they observed four armed subjects get into a vehicle and officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop. When the vehicle refused to stop, IMPD pursued the vehicle.

As the vehicle approached I-65 and got on the interstate, police said an IMPD sergeant terminated the pursuit due to the approaching construction.

The driver of the vehicle continued and crashed into a vehicle that was occupied by uninvolved citizens. One of the citizens suffered minor injures but was not transported to the hospital.

Officers searched the perimeter and are confident the suspect is no longer in the area. Police said they don't believe there is any danger to citizens.

I-465 westbound is closed as cleanup and treatment is underway for those injured.
