Three men are expected to be charged after a home invasion in Lorain and subsequent police chase.

At 1:30 a.m. officers responded to shots fired in the 3000 block of Flumer Road in the City of Lorain. While checking the area, a man flagged down police and told them he had been robbed.

The victim told police three men kicked in his apartment door, threatened him and his girlfriend with guns and stole money and valuables. While the gunmen were fleeing the scene, the victim said he heard at least one shot fired.

Just before 2:30 a.m. Monday, police got behind a stolen vehicle on State Route 57 near I-90. The vehicle was stolen from Cleveland and the suspects inside were later determined to be the suspects who committed the home invasion.

When police tried to pull the car over, the driver sped off.

Just after 2:30 p.m., troopers pursued the vehicle in Sheffield Village on I-90. The chase lasted about 6 to 7 minutes, reaching speeds of 110 mph.

Troopers say stop sticks were deployed, but they, unfortunately, deflated another police cruiser's tires instead of the suspect's.

The chase finally ended when the suspect lost control of the stolen vehicle and stopped on I-90 near Hilliard Avenue in Rocky River.

The suspect then fled on foot and was arrested a short time later.

Police say they found another suspect in the back seat of the stolen car, who was also taken into custody.

A third person was found in the front passenger street with a gunshot wound, which police believe was acquired during the home invasion in Lorain. That person, 20-year-old Savon Crenshaw, was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center. He is expected to be arrested when he is released.

Leedward Hicks, 28, and Da Quan Chrisburg, 21, were taken into custody.

All three individuals will be charged with aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery. Additional charges are expected to be made as the investigation continues.

Lorain police are investigating the home invasion. They also took possession of the stolen vehicle for the investigation.
