PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona authorities say two homicide suspects sought in Los Angeles were arrested following a chase and gunfire on Interstate 40.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says no one was injured in the incident Friday.

According to the department, the suspects in a stolen pickup began firing at pursuing troopers.

The department says additional troopers deployed ahead of the pickup and disabled it with gunfire needed "due to the immediate danger the suspects displayed."

The department identified the suspects only as a 37-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman and directed inquiries about them to the Los Angeles Police Department.

An LAPD spokesman said Saturday he could not immediately provide any information.
