DALLAS — Six people were taken into custody Sunday night after two different pursuits ended in Dallas. 

The first pursuit began just before 11 p.m. near Interstate 20 and West Wheatland Road, deputies said. That is in the southern portion of Red Bird.

Deputies with the Dallas County Sheriff's Department told WFAA the vehicle involved in the chase was stolen. 

The chase then made its way through Dallas to the 1000 block of Cesar Chavez, which is near the Dallas Farmers Market downtown. 

At that point, the vehicle crashed into a fence and the chase came to an end, deputies said. 

An investigation into that chase is ongoing, according to deputies, and the suspects have not been identified. 

The second chase started after 2:20 a.m. when Cedar Hill officers responded to a vehicle burglary in progress in the 2400 block of Scenic Court.

The caller told 911 that the suspects had fired at them, according to Cedar Hill police.

The suspects failed to stop for responding officers and led police on a chase until they crashed near I-20 and Mountain Creek Parkway.
