SHARE Gunman takes Denver police on `action-movie’ chase

A gunman led police on a dramatic rush-hour car chase Friday morning that witnesses said was straight out of an action movie, before his car was boxed in and caught.

The gunman had been in a bizarre overnight standoff with police, before escaping from a house where he had holed up.A radio traffic reporter in a helicopter recounted the drama as police cars from several towns and the state patrol tried to block the fugitive.

"It was like in a movie," witness Leonard Gonzales said, adding that at one point, the suspect went in the wrong direction on a major highway.
