5 in custody after high-speed chase ends in Pleasanton Monday night

Speeds reached between 80-100 mph, CHP says

San Jose police took five people into custody late Monday night after a high-speed chase on I-680.

California Highway Patrol officers radioed at 11:12 p.m. that San Jose police were in pursuit of suspects in a Ford Fusion. Police believed one or more of the people were involved in a homicide in San Jose, according to the CHP.

The pursuit continued and San Jose police asked the CHP to take over the chase. When the suspect vehicle passed Washington Boulevard in Fremont, San Jose police said a gun was thrown from the vehicle, according to the CHP.

Dublin CHP units took over the chase at I-680 and Vargas Road and the chase reached speeds of between 80 and 100 mph, CHP officials said.

During the incident, the Ford sustained damage to its left rear tire and the tire left the rim when the vehicle passed the Bernal Avenue off-ramp in Pleasanton. At that time, the suspects voluntarily pulled over into the center divider and CHP officers took the five people into custody without incident.

San Jose police arrived at the scene and took over the investigation, as well as taking custody of the individuals and the vehicle, according to the CHP.

Police recovered a gun near the right shoulder of northbound I-680 near Washington Boulevard.
