Three law enforcement officers were injured Wednesday during a high-speed chase to capture a homicide suspect on I-95, according to reports.

The suspect remained at large in South Philadelphia shortly after noon, according to NBC10. The Philadelphia Police Department tweeted these photos of the homicide suspect and said he is armed and dangerous.

Authorities identified the suspect as 20-year-old DeJuan Robinson, who is wanted for multiple homicides in Delaware. 

Two members of the Wilmington Police Department and one Pennsylvania State Police trooper were hurt in a crash that occurred on the highway near Philadelphia International Airport.

A chase began in Delaware but later crossed into Pennsylvania, bringing state police into the pursuit until cruisers from both agencies reportedly collided in the northbound lanes. Philadelphia police tweeted that I-95 North was closed at Exit 13 as a result.

In South Philadelphia, a SEPTA bus also was struck by two vehicles around Oregon Avenue and Broad Street during the pursuit. A SEPTA spokesman said the crash involved a Route 68 bus right outside Oregon Avenue. One passenger suffered non-life-threatening injuries. 

Officials said the injuries to the officers also were non-life-threatening.

Robinson is believed to be on foot as multiple police officers scour the area.
