MOORHEAD, MINN. (Valley News Live) - UPDATE: Moorhead Police say the suspects involved in a late-night standoff ran from police in a stolen car.

A Minnesota State Trooper tried to pull over a speeding vehicle in the southern part of the city just after midnight on February 1st, but it took off. The car eventually spun out on 34th street south and the two people inside fled to a nearby apartment building.

Law enforcement tried to get them to come outside, but to no avail. They entered the apartment and arrested the two suspects, as well as the person whose apartment they were hiding in.

Police say all three people taken into custody had active warrants and further charges are pending.

ORIGINAL STORY: Moorhead Police say the suspect(s) involved in a standoff at an apartment complex are now behind bars.

The call for the situation came in around the midnight hour between Sunday, Jan. 31 and Monday, Feb. 1 to the 3300 block of 21st St. S.

The Valley News Live crew on scene was pushed back from the apartment and could hear authorities using a bullhorn ordering people out of the building.

Moorhead Police say the case was handled by the State Patrol, and they also tell Valley News Live they are no longer looking for anyone in relation to this case.

A check of the Clay County Jail roster shows three people booked at around the time the standoff came to an end.

Those three people were arrested for a range of charges including assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless driving, driving under suspension, fleeing and possession of stolen property. Not everyone in the group has the same charges.
