The police followed the vehicle that was believed to be driven by Simmons, the suspect. After that, the vehicle that was being pursued did a U-turn onto Route 83, which prompted the officer to switch on his emergency lights and sirens.

After a high-speed pursuit involving numerous law enforcement agencies and a helicopter from the Chicago Police Department, the vehicle was found in the area of Central Park Avenue and Harrison Street in Chicago after it had been pursued there.
