denver police were pursuing a vehicle that had at least one involved in two felonies. police called them serious felony crimes. they say this chase was authorized according to their protocols but they could not tell us where the chase started or how far or how many miles it this crash. two individuals in the vehicle were taken to the hospital we are told with nonlife threatening injuries. two others are in police custody. >> our primary concern is preservation of life and safety including the suspects safety. what we want to do is end this situation as soon as we can so that more people aren't hurt. unfortunately, there were people hurt here. we have to react that the decision the suspect is making and that is what we have done. >> reporter: police when they mentioned that people were hurt, those were the people who were taken to the hospital with nonlife threatening injuries.
no pedestrians were injured in this. denver police say there were no shots fired. but this investigation is ongoing and as soon as we get more dell tails we will bring them to you. >> forgive me if you said this maya, but why were they chasing these suspects? what were they suspected of? >> reporter: they could not tell us what felonies they were suspected of, but there was one suspect in the vehicle that was suspected of being involved in two felonies. they call them serious crimes. >> all right, very good. guess we will wait for clarification on that. thanks maya. a teenage boy has died and two others are in the hospital tonight after they were rescued from an icy pond in parker. the pond at club driver east of parker road not far from the intersection with hill top road. jonathan gonzalez is live. >> reporter: what we understand
water. it took crews quite a bit of time to get him out. we don't have the other boys official conditions but one of them we are told is doing well. and the other one is still being treated by doctors at this time. this happened just after 4:00. a person at the neighborhood authorities. the first officer on scene broke a branch off a tree and helped pull one of the boys out of the water right away. that is when south metro fire showed up and water and ice crews were able to pull the second teen out of the ice within five to ten minutes we are told. but it took them 35 minutes to locate an pull out the third teen. authorities described the rescue as very technical and difficult because of the ice. not to mention the battle they had to face against time. >> in colorado, the temperature fluctuates. one week, thick ice on the pond, next week, it is very thin. it is never safe to go out on
it is never a safe idea. >> reporter: we still don't know, we have not learned why the boys were in the water to begin with. police are investigating and we should get more information in the coming days and adele, we have seen many people drive here in the cul-de-sac near the pond. a lot of people came out and stood by the fence and watched the pond and told us they came out to pay their respects. >> we were wondering why they went on the ice. from where you stand, is it clear that it is not solid in some places? >> reporter: it is clear, but it is tough to tell. it could have been the crew. a lot of the ice is broken. but there is a nice sheet of ice away from where the incident happened. it could have looked frozen but it is clear that it is thin now that it is broken. they would have had to walk down the embankment to get to it. it is something we mr. have to learn more about in the coming days. >> thanks jonathan. a smaller gop field on
of the most practiced debaters to shine. no longer is senator ted cruz attached at the lip to everything donald trump says. trump wants cruz's citizenship to be an issue. cruz was born in canada to an american mother which makes him an american citizen. but trump has been suggesting he might be ineligible to serve as president. >> we are closing this topic once and for all tonight. >> well, i'm glad we are focusing on the important topics of the eving but the facts and the law back in september my friend donald said he had his lawyers look at this from every which way. and there was no issue there. there was nothing to this further issue. now, in september, the constitution hasn't changed since then. [ laughter ] but, the poll numbers have. [ cheers and applause ] >> senator cruz dominated the debate in many ways along with the two other best hands down
chris christie and marco rubio. they both turned their attention on hillary clinton instead of their gop rivals. >> hillary clinton is commander-in-chief of the united states.
[ cheers and applause ] >> someone who cannot handle intelligence information cannot be commander-in-chief and someone who lice to families of the four victims in benghazi united states. [ cheers and applause ] >> trump's proposal of banning muslims enter the u.s. has been a topic. he asked if there was anything he heard that would make him rethink his stance. >> no. [ laughter ] no. we have to stop with political correctness. we have to get down to creating a country that is not going to have the kind of problems that we have had with people flying planes into the world trade center.
the world. i just left indonesia. bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb. we have to find out what is going on. i said temporarily. not permanently. i said temporarily. >> jeb bush immediately responded arguing why the ban would hut our national security and our relationship with allies around the world. >> i hope you reconsider this. because, this policy is a policy that makes it impossible to build the coalition that is necessary to take out isis. the kurds are our strongest allies. they are muslim. you will not allow them to come to our country? the other arab countries have a role to play in this. we cannot be the world's policemen. we have to do this in unison with the arab world. >> on 9news at 9:00, we spoke with strategists to discuss by jeb bush and ben carson are
repeat lackluster performances. ben carson. they want someone who is not a practiced poll politician and bush. >> i think jeb has good policies but every time he pokes hid head up, the schoolyard bully donald trump smacks him down again. you saw him talk about jeb being week. any time he makes a little traction he is put back in his place. >> kelly and james agreed on the three candidates who had the best night. they are the leading candidates in the polls. trump, cruz, and rubio. next time we see the democratic presidential candidates debate will be on sunday. dc is hosting the debates. clinton, o'malley, and sanders are all invited to attend. the debate air at 7:00 p.m. sunday on 9news. monday, donald trump was on the tonight show with jimmy fallon. tonight, hillary clinton has her turn.

custody last month after someone sent a text tip about the plan to attack mountain vista high school. governor john hickenlooper drew a clear line on one of the most divisive issues during the state of the state. the governor and fellow democrats want to move $750 million in hospital fees out of the taxpayer bill of rights so the state can keep that money and use it on transportation. the nonpartisan legal staff says that would be unconstitutional. if they don't pass his fix, he will have to realleviate all of the taxpayer bill of rights. i asked him what he meant. >> i told legislators today to pass your preferred revenue fix with this hospital provider fee. or, we will have to re-examine the whole taxpayer bill of rights. was that a threat? >> i think what i was say sergeant the hospital provider fee is the most obvious. clearly the fee has been judged
that has looked at it. but i'm open to anything. it wasn't a threat. i'm just saying everywhere i go on the front range, people are frustrated by the traffic congestion, the lack of meaningful change. we have to find new rev news. you can't just say we are going to bond and get this money out of nowhere. it is bonding if you borrow money and you don't have cash flow, you are going out on a ledge. >> after today's state of the state, the governor was pelted by the legislature. as for the governor's speech, most of it met with bipartisan acclaim. you can read the full transcript on 9news.com. a local space company that lost a bid for a nasa project landed a different one bigger than the first ever was. sierra nevada space systems in
