MUSKEGO, Wis. (AP) -- Multiple people are in custody after an officer shooting led to a vehicle chase that ended in Muskego.

A statement from the Walworth County Sheriff's Office says the incident began around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday when deputies and police officers approached a car in a restaurant parking lot.

The statement says a deputy fired his gun and the suspect vehicle fled. The statement doesn't say why the deputy fired or whether anyone was hurt.

Authorities pursued the vehicle on Interstate 43 toward Milwaukee.

Muskego police said in a statement the vehicle crashed and officers searched for a suspect who fled. Several hours later, they announced that "all suspects" were in custody.

No further details were immediately available.

Police directed inquires to the state Division of Criminal Investigation. An agency spokeswoman couldn't immediately be reached early Thursday.
