Shooter Crashes into two Vehicles after Drive by Shooting in Englewood

On Friday August 11th at around 10:30 pm a call of shots fired came across the police radio the location of the shots fired were coming from the 900 block of Carpenter street in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood on the Southside, moments later another call followed, a three car accident just happened at the intersection of 74th and Morgan, when Chicago police arrived on the scene and talked to witnesses, some of the witnesses said they heard the shots fired, then a man came speeding through the light striking two other vehicles then the driver bailed out of the car and ran.

Chicago police quickly put out an all points bulletin out on the suspect. Ten minutes later the driver was captured and brought back to scene to be identified and then was promptly arrested. A gun was found in the vehicle the suspect was driving. No one was shot at the targeted Carpenter address just some homes were hit by the gun fire. Multiple people were injured in this crash and taken away by ambulance.

The officer in charge of this crime scene took to the radio in search of a lock transport gun box it seems as though the seventy district ran out of these gun boxes due to the massive amounts of guns they have been taking off the streets in this district, dispatch called to surrounding districts with no luck so a sergeant took possession of the weapon and brought the weapon to the seventh district. There also seems to be a shortage of shell casing markers and crime scene tape, officers always seem to be in search of these items. It seems to this reporter the Chicago police command was unprepared for the unforeseen violence presently plaguing the Bloody Streets of Chicago.

The boy was inside a home in the 3500 block of West Pierce Avenue when someone fired shots outside. The bullets shattered the home’s window and hit the boy. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition stabilized.

This past Monday August 8th was Chicago’s Deadliest day in over a decade. Nine out of the 19 people who were shot on Monday died. This marks the deadliest day of gun violence in Chicago since July 5, 2003—a day on which there were 10 homicides.

There were 3 police involved car chases across the city Tuesday it is unclear if this cruiser crashed in one of those car chases.

Chicago is starting to resemble the wild wild west more and more every day. According to the police radio this vehicle was being pursued by the Chicago police when it crashed into another vehicle at 59th and Ashland in the west Englewood neighborhood on Chicago’s Southside. it is unknown if the suspects bailed or were arrested, but what I do know is a gun was found in the vehicle. These fleeing criminals use guns to kill and wound but when they are trying to escape from police at high rates of speed, that vehicle becomes as deadly a weapon as the gun they use.
