CHICAGO -- A stolen car is found in Skokie before it's part of a high-speed police chase into the city.

Two suspected carjackers remain in custody at Area Central. The search is ongoing for the third suspect.

The high speed chase stretched from Skokie to West Town.

WGN has learned that the car involved in the chase was stolen last Friday during an armed carjacking near Mercy Hospital.

This morning WGN's Nancy Loo informed the car owner's family that their Toyota RAV4 turned up on the 800 block of North Sangamon. In Chinese, they said their relative had been forced out of the SUV at gunpoint last Friday evening, after he had stopped near 26th and Michigan.

A Skokie resident called police around 11 p.m. Wednesday night to report a suspicious vehicle.

After venturing onto the Edens, the three suspects in the vehicle led state police on a high speed chase, eventually ditching the Toyota Rav4 on the 800 block of North Sangamon.

Two suspects tried to run off but were taken into custody a few blocks away. The police searched for the third suspect near the Chicago Tribune's Freedom Tower, but the suspect is still at large.

During the chase the SUV reached speeds up to about 100 miles an hour, said police.

A hand gun was found in the vehicle, said state police.

The two suspects have not yet been charged.
