OKLAHOMA CITY – One person has been taken into custody following a high-speed chase in northeast Oklahoma City.

Shortly before 2 p.m. on Monday afternoon, Oklahoma City officers were able to take one person into custody near N.E. 63rd and Westminster.

Initial reports indicate that the suspect led officers on a pursuit through northeast Oklahoma City. At one point, officers believed that the suspect was armed with a gun.
