It was said at the scene more than 20 police vehicles from nearly 10 departments were involved in the chase and subsequent apprehension of suspects.

A representative of the Alton Police Department said at least two are in custody following the case and said he believed the chase began following an armed robbery on the Missouri side of the river.

One black male with short hair with a blue T-shirt was in handcuffs and police were administering first aid. It is not known if he is a suspect, nor the nature of his injuries.
