COMMERCE CITY — Commerce City police have arrested three people suspected in a shooting after their car became stuck on railroad tracks and they ran.

Police say the shooting occurred Sunday and they spotted a car and gave chase.

According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/lo8c6ys ), the driver veered off the road and tried to drive over railroad tracks and became stuck. All three people got out of the car and ran, just before a Burlington Northern train came down the tracks and hit the empty car.

Officers arrested the three people and recovered a handgun. Police say they do not know if anyone was hurt in the shooting and the names of the suspects and charges were not available.
