Authorities have arrested a third suspect after they and two others led police on a car chase in the East Bay on Wednesday.

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Three people were taken into custody Wednesday after leading police on a wild car chase in the East Bay.

SKY7 was over most of the chase, which authorities say began in East Oakland around 12:15 p.m.

Officers say there were in the 7200 block of Fresno Street when they located a vehicle wanted in connection with a shooting that previously occurred.

Police say the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed that led police on the car chase.

The pursuit ultimately came to an end when the driver lost control on westbound Highway 24 near the Telegraph Ave. exit.

SKY7 captured the moment the suspects ditched the car in the middle of the freeway and ran to the guardrail. One of the suspects jumped and was able to get away while the two others were detained.

Police say the suspect was apprehended around 2:25 p.m.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the OPD Felony Assault Unit at (510)238-3426.
