A Chicago man was due in court Wednesday charged with shooting at police officers during a chase earlier in the week.

Police say Terrell Phagan was behind the wheel of a Chevy van that led a police through several South Side neighborhoods. According to police, Phagan took shots at officers during the 11-mile chase.

The suspect was out on parole for a similar crime last summer.

The Chicago Tribune reports that this past July, Phagan was released on parole for a 2008 conviction in connection with a police chase that started in south suburban Sauk Village.

In that case, Phagan and another man were accused of firing shots at a Sauk Cillage police officer.
