MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A large police presence on Interstate-494 in Minnetonka appears to have briefly shut the roadway down in both directions during the Tuesday afternoon commute.

The Bloomington Police Department says police officers were following a stolen car on the interstate and they attempted to pull the driver over. At that point, the suspect got out of the vehicle and ran away.

Officers have set up a perimeter in the area. No arrests have been made and police are still searching for the suspect.
