A carjacking suspect in Glendale was arrested after crashing the stolen vehicle on the northbound 2 Freeway.

Authorities received a report of a carjacking and shots fired at about 10 p.m. Tuesday in the 100 block of Sinclair Avenue, near the interchange for the 134 and 2 freeways.

Shortly afterward, officials say the suspect crashed the stolen car on the 2 Freeway near Foothill Boulevard. That's when the suspect took off and the freeway came to a halt as police hunted him down.

About an hour later, the man was found near Verdugo Avenue and the 2 Freeway.

Glendale police are investigating the shots fired report that came in around the same time as the carjacking. Investigators are trying to determine if the two incidents are connected.
