About 3:10 a.m., officers responded to a call of shots fired near a nightclub in the 300 block of West Erie Street, Chicago police said. A witness told police people inside of two vehicles had been arguing and that they heard gunshots.

Officers noticed a white vehicle fleeing on the Ontario Feeder Ramp to Interstate 90 where it crashed, police said. Two males fled on foot, one of whom was apprehended and placed into custody.
