A pursuit involving a homicide suspect came to an end with two people in custody in Azusa Tuesday morning.

The black and gold colored four-door vehicle had exited the 210 Freeway and taken to city streets in the Glendora area as Sky5 got over the chase about 6 a.m.

At one point during the pursuit, the vehicle was traveling at speeds over 100 mph, according to a California Highway Patrol spokesperson.

The car came to a stop on West Foothill Boulevard between Azusa Avenue and San Gabriel Avenue in Azusa about 6:20 a.m.

Multiple patrol vehicles could be seen behind the stopped car.

The driver and a passenger exited the vehicle a short time later and were taken into custody without incident.

Officials have not identified the driver or the passenger.

The incident remains under investigation and no further details were immediately available.
