CHICAGO (CBS) — Police were searching for a heroin-induced homicide suspect who led officers on a chase through the western suburbs and into the city, before causing at least two crashes, and taking off again.
Chicago police called off the chase after a civilian’s car ended up crashing into a Lakeview apartment building.
It started around 9:15 p.m., when police in Lombard started chasing a vehicle driven by a person wanted in connection with a drug-induced homicide. Lombard police said, around 2:30 p.m., officers responded to a home for a fatal heroin overdose.
After investigators identified a suspect who allegedly supplied the drugs, police tried to pull over a 2002 Pontiac Bonneville, but the suspect fled, taking officers on a long, winding chase through several suburbs and parts of Chicago — including on stretches of the Eisenhower Expressway, the Stevenson Expressway, and Lake Shore Drive.
