By rlsmetro on

NJ State Police, The FBI and Elizabeth Police, are a neighborhood investigating after a high-speed pursuit ended with the arrest of a possible murder suspect from Connecticut.

At approximately 10:50 a.m., NJ State Police attempted several times to pull over a car in several locations in Elizabeth, including Bayway Avenue, Smith Street, Route 1&9, and East 6th, when the driver ignored officers and sped through that portion of the city in an attempt to bail from the car.

Police say the pursuit ended when the suspect pulled into the driveway of a house in the vicinity of 4th and Division streets at around 11:14 a.m.

Local, state and federal police officers flooded the community and took the driver of the car in custody without further incident.

NJ State Police have not immediately confirmed if the suspect they captured this morning is wanted for a gruesome double murder that occurred in Connecticut on Friday.
