The department’s street crimes unit said it was called just after midnight Sunday to a large “pop-up” party on South 6th Street in Springfield. Police said the suspects drove off, then tried to run from officers after their getaway vehicle crashed into a fence.

Police said they seized three pistols, one of them stolen from Lincoln.

Sangamon County prosecutors filed felony charges against Nasaan Booker and Coree Carlton, both 19, and William Sanchez, who’s 18. All three are from Peoria, according to police.
