CHICAGO (STMW) — Two people were arrested and a third was at large Friday morning after a police chase in the McKinley Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side Thursday night.
Officers saw a vehicle, traveling at a high rate of speed, drive through a stop sign in the 3200 block of South Claremont Avenue about 10:30 p.m., police said. The officers tried to pull the vehicle over, and a chase ensued.
The vehicle crashed about a half block away at 32nd and Western, police said. Three males got out and ran off, with one pulling out a handgun and pointing it at officers, police said.
An officer opened fire at the male pointing the gun, but no one was struck, police said.
Two of the males were arrested and two guns were recovered, police said. The third male was being sought by detectives as of Friday morning.
Investigators were trying to determine if the three were involved with a homicide that occurred in the 3100 block of 41st Place about five minutes before the chase, police said.
