Four suspects are in custody after a massive police chase that ended with a crash near Sloan's Lake, according to an official with the Denver Police Department. 

Police also said two people were taken to a hospital following the crash, but "no innocent bystanders were injured" Thursday evening.

Prior to the chase police were using a helicopter to follow a black SUV in connection with two felony cases. Police then called in officers on the ground to stop the vehicle, and that's when the suspected vehicle took off at a high rate of speed. At that time a decision was made to initiate a police pursuit, according DPD spokesperson Matt Murray. 

Officers began following the suspects in the area of Lowell and Alameda until they reached the area of West 25th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard. The suspect vehicle crashed and four people were eventually taken into custody. Two of those individuals were transported to the hospital.

Police did not elaborate on the felony cases they were investigating before the chase.

In an interesting turn of events, the wife of "Dog the Bounty Hunter" tweeted that the suspects crashed near their office. 

No officers were hurt in the chase. The identities of the suspects have also not been released.
