The pursuit ended near Route 73 in Evesham Township where one suspect was taken into custody.
EVESHAM TWP., New Jersey (WPVI) -- A police pursuit began in Philadelphia and ended in South Jersey on Wednesday night.
Initially, police believed the car was connected to last weekend's mass shooting in Kensington but later determined there was no connection.
A 26-year-old man was taken into custody on drug charges.
This all started around 9:30 p.m. in Kensington.
Highway patrol officers spotted a vehicle around Frankford and Allegheny avenues that fit the description of a Honda used in two recent shootings, including one last Saturday night where nine people were shot outside a Kensington bar.
A police helicopter immediately went up following the vehicle from Kensington, over the Tacony Palmyra Bridge and into New Jersey.
New Jersey police departments were notified.
The driver pulled into the Bradley Funeral Home parking lot near Evesham Road and Route 73. The driver exited the vehicle and ran to a wooded area.
Neighbors shared alerts from police, locking doors and staying inside.
"The text our neighbor sent said that we should stay inside," said Gerry Capistrano of Marlton.
Evesham Township police were able to take the driver into custody within minutes.
The vehicle was towed to a Philadelphia police garage for further examination.
Police later determined that the car was not linked to the two recent shootings in the Kensington area.
