ST. LOUIS – Three teenagers suspected of breaking into cars are in custody after a police chase in St. Louis.

The chase began around midnight Wednesday on the city's south side, where four teens were allegedly breaking into cars. An off-duty police officer saw them and fired shots.

The suspects fled in a minivan, prompting a chase that ended with a crash at St. Louis Avenue and 10th Street. Police say speeds reached up to 80 mph during the chase.

The suspects got out of the van and ran. Three were captured. One was still being sought.

The suspects range in age from 16 to 19. Their names were not released.
