Police in Evanston, Wyo., were involved in a shooting there earlier Saturday, a spokesman said.

Evanston police Lt. Bill Jeffers declined to say if anyone was hurt or killed and offered few other details. He said the shooting happened in downtown Evanston. A press conference is scheduled for noon Sunday.

Jeffers said the shooting involved officers from the city police force and the Uinta County, Wyo., sheriff's office. The Uinta County Herald reported the shooting happened after a high-speed chase that ended at an Arby's at 158 Front St.

Jeffers said the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation is investigating the shooting.

Evanston sits on Interstate 80 just across the state line from Utah.
