CHICAGO -- A search is underway after a shot was fired at Illinois State Police troopers following a high-speed chase connected to a homicide.

It happened around midnight Tuesday near 127th and Parnell.

The incident started as a car chase on I-57 near 111th and involved a white Range Rover with Florida plates, that reportedly left the scene of a homicide in Maywood on July 31st.
