Springfield police were involved in a short high-speed pursuit Wednesday afternoon through downtown that ended with the suspect crashing his vehicle into the front steps of St. Agnes Catholic Church.
Lt. Tony Vienhage said three people in the vehicle were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Vienhage said one of the men in the vehicle was a suspect in a shooting that happened Sunday. Detectives spotted the man in the vehicle near the intersection of Elm Street and National Avenue, Vienhage said.
