Several shell casings were found in the street. A vehicle and two buildings were damaged, according to police.
Officers spotted the Mountaineer at West 53rd and Brady streets and tried to stop it. Officers chased the vehicle to Interstate 74 where it tried to take the on-ramp to go east on I-74.
The driver of the vehicle failed to negotiate the curve in the road because of excessive speed and lost control, causing it to go into the ditch.
The vehicle came to rest on the shoulder of the eastbound lanes of I-74.
Four people fled on foot; Eddings, Conley, and Kelly were arrested after a foot pursuit.
A gun, which had one round in the chamber, was found outside the vehicle. The round matched 10 of the 11 shell casings found at the scene of the shooting.
All three men have prior felony convictions and are prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition.
Bond was set Tuesday at $100,000 cash-only for each of the men. Eddings will be arraigned Oct. 10.
Conley has a preliminary hearing Sept. 19, and Kelly has a preliminary hearing Sept. 27.
