Three men were jailed after shots were fired and Colorado Springs police pursued them through downtown early Thursday morning.

Police heard two gunshots from the 100 block of East Pikes Peak Avenue, near Tejon Street, at 1:53 a.m.

As they approached the suspected shooter, identified as Michael Garrison, 26, a Chevrolet Tahoe sped away from the scene.

Police said two of their cars were hit during the chase that ended near Cimarron Street and Tejon when the driver of the Tahoe, identified as 26-year-old Eddie Lightsey, failed to make the turn and slid into a large construction site hole.

Lightsey was arrested on suspicion of DUI, felony assault on police officers and felony eluding, police records show.

Garrison was also arrested on suspicion of weapons charges and Tony Hoeppel, 30, was arrested on suspicion of obstruction, police said.
