A suspect was shot by a police officer and three others were arrested early Wednesday after they led police on an early morning chase from Brooklyn to East St. Louis.
According to police reports, authorities tried to stop a motorist following a traffic violation but the driver refused to stop. Police said the driver tried to run officers down in his attempt to flee. Shots were then fired.
The car was pursued to 13th Street and Bowman Avenue where five men jumped from the vehicle and tried to get away on foot. Four of them were caught but one got away and police are still searching for him.
Illinois State Police are investigating the shooting.
