COUNTRY CLUB HILLS, Ill. (WLS) -- Police said the fatal shooting of a man in a wheelchair outside a movie theater in Country Club Hill sparked a high speed chase on the Tri-State Tollway.

Troopers called the chase off after losing sight of the suspect's car.

Police have not released a motive for the shooting. The victim was a 31-year-old man.

"I just thought maybe there was an accident, and when I heard there was actually a crime committed, it was discouraging," said Gaavin Davis, one of the motorists detoured due to the chase.

The search for the suspects who evaded state police is ongoing.
