U.S. Highway 36 reopened after Adams County shooting, police chase forced closure

A shooting and police chase early Wednesday forced the closure for several hours of U.S. Highway 36, which links metro Denver and Boulder, as investigators worked at the scene between Federal and Sheridan boulevards.

Both eastbound and westbound lanes of the highway were reopened shortly after 7:30 a.m.

Adams County Sheriff’s deputies cited an active investigation before the highway was closed.

Early Wednesday, shots were fired, and deputies chased a vehicle carrying a suspect, according to an Adams County Sheriff’s posting on Twitter. Deputies in pursuit stopped the vehicle using a tactical maneuver, and all occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody, agency Twitter postings said. No injuries were reported.

Regional Transportation District officials said all buses used detour routes and advised riders to check service alerts.
