Two armed robbery suspects Friday evening led Chicago Police officers on a chase on Lake Shore Drive from the North Side to downtown.
The pair walked into a store about 6 p.m. in the 1900 block of West Irving Park Road, and stole cash from the register while holding employees at gunpoint, according to police.
They drove off in a white Chrysler 300 and got on Lake Shore Drive, police said. Officers followed them south on Lake Shore, eventually reaching LaSalle and Kinzie, where the Chrysler caused a crash between two uninvolved vehicles. No injuries were reported.
Police recovered a weapon, and Area Central detectives were questioning a person of interest.
