The incident started in Newton, where shots were fired during a carjacking in West Newton Square. The suspect vehicle fled to Billerica, where a second carjacking was reported on Nashua Road.

The suspect led police to Carlisle, where shots were fired. The suspect then crashed the second stolen vehicle, a Toyota Tundra, in Concord and carjacked a Ford Flex at gunpoint on Lowell Road.

“There were numerous cruisers on the side of the road. The gentleman just crashed the car, and we heard someone say he hijacked the car,” witness Jason Drinkwater said. “It’s crazy. In Concord, it’s crazy.”

The suspect then fled to Hanscom Air Force Base, where the car drove through the guard gate. The driver continued and was arrested on Springs Road in Bedford when the vehicle struck a pole, police said.

The suspect was not identified.
