COOK COUNTY, Ill. - Three Chicago men were arrested after leading police on a chase in a stolen vehicle last month.
At about 7:49 p.m. on March 25, Illinois State Police troopers were alerted by the Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) system of a stolen vehicle traveling northbound on Interstate 94.
A trooper located the stolen vehicle and followed it off the interstate at 43rd Street, where the driver intentionally crashed into an occupied vehicle near the intersection of 43rd Street and LaSalle Street. At that point, shots were fired in front of the trooper.
The vehicle then fled the scene and reentered I-94 heading southbound.

The vehicle then crashed in the area of 71st Street and Wood Street. At that point, three occupants fled on foot.
