GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Several hours after a dramatic high speed chase and shooting there are still many questions unanswered.

Two people are dead after a high speed chase and shooting on Highway 212 near Dell Road in Eden Prairie.

"The circumstances surrounding the shooting remain under investigation at this time," said Lt. Eric Roeske with the Minnesota State Patrol.

Here's what we do know: The chase started Friday morning after reports of a car driving erratically near highway 212 and County Road 51 in Chaska. It is the same car police believe took off after rear-ending a vehicle on Highway 212 and County Road 43.

Several squad cars chased after the vehicle which investigators say reached speeds of more than 90 miles per hour. Investigators would not release the relationship between the driver and passenger, only saying it was a man and a woman.

"Both parties are deceased. We need to investigate what the circumstances are that lead them to be together," said Roeske.

After police deployed stop sticks and attempted pit maneuvers the car crashed.

KARE 11 enlisted the help of instructor Jim Unger at Dakota County Technical College in hopes he may see something in the video that stands out. After all, this former cop teaches officers how to pursue suspects while driving.

"It looked like a pretty standard pursuit. They kept their distance," said Unger.

In the video, the man and woman get out of the car. It appears one is holding the other, but what exactly is happening is unclear.

Moments later, officers fire their weapons. Investigators won't say if the two people fired at the officers or if they had any weapons at all.

"It's defiantly a bizarre pursuit as pursuits go," he said.
