Three people are under arrest after a crash in Ottawa near the area of LaSalle and Washington streets Thursday morning.

The Ottawa Police Department says officers had tried to pull a vehicle over after it was found to have been reported stolen from Shiller Park when it crashed and the three occupants fled. All three were eventually arrested.

25-year-old Kemar R. Matthews of Chicago is charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle, possession of a weapon by a felon, and several more charges. 24-year-old Shimund R. Jones and a seventeen-year-old girl, both from Chicago, are facing multiple charges in the incident as well.

Because of the incident's close proximity to Marquette Academy, the school was notified. Police say there was no threat to the public.
