MARICOPA -- Two suspects are in custody after being part of an officer-involved shooting in Maricopa.

Investigators said officers spotted a stolen truck on Interstate 10 near Maricopa Road just after 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

Officers followed the truck and forced it to stop. The two suspects jumped out at Casa Grande Highway and Pershing Street and fled into a neighborhood.

One man was caught while the other hid in a trailer. Officials say it took quite an effort involving officers, a SWAT team, a police helicopter and a bloodhound to take him into custody following a 90-minute search.

Officials say at one point an officer fired his gun, but no one was hit.

According to Department of Public Safety spokesman Sgt. Kevin Wood, the suspects are going to be booked on multiple felonies in Pinal County.
