Edgewater police chase: Armed suspects ditch vehicle

Written By Timothy Fitz on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 | 5/04/2011 02:10:00 PM

What started as an attempted routine traffic stop, quickly escalated into a potentially deadly situation for Chicago police, this afternoon.

At approximately 1:40 p.m., officers tried to stop a green Jeep Cherokee on the 5900 block of North Magnolia Avenue, near Magnolia and Thorndale in Edgewater.

Seconds into the brief high speed police car chase, the suspects in the offending vehicle ditched their car at 1355 West Thorndale. All three black male occupants fled the scene on foot.

Police recovered a handgun in an alley behind 5956 North Magnolia Avenue. The weapon belonged to one of the fleeing suspects, said police.

One of the three offenders was arrested at 1257 West Norwood, said one source.

Authorities are still looking for two more suspects.

No injuries were reported.
