An attempt by Salem police to check the well-being of a possibly suicidal man led to a chase through multiple North Shore towns Wednesday night but did not result in an arrest, police said.
Police received a call shortly before 7:30 p.m. about a man in a grey Audi believed to have a firearm and to be suicidal, Salem police Sergeant Andrew Dacy said.
A Salem officer found the car on Franklin Street, but the man sped off after the officer turned on her lights, Dacy said.
Police followed, and the chase continued into Peabody, Danvers, and Beverly before Salem police broke off, he said.
Five units in Beverly were involved in the chase, but they ended their pursuit when the man went onto Route 128 southbound, according to Officer Michael Boccuzzi, a Beverly police spokesman. Danvers police were continuing the pursuit, he said.
A Danvers police spokesperson could not immediately be reached Wednesday night.
State Police got involved around 8:25 p.m. when a trooper saw the vehicle on Route 128 southbound near Route 114, Dave Procopio, a State Police spokesman, said in an email.
The trooper pursued the vehicle into Reading, but police ended the chase when the car got off the highway, he said.
