Two men have been charged after Chicago police officers witnessed someone fire gunshots downtown late Tuesday morning and people were taken into custody following a traffic crash on the West Side, police said.
Shots were fired about 11:20 a.m. Tuesday in the 600 block of South Michigan Avenue and officers saw the attack, which led to a crash on the Near West Side following a pursuit, according to police.
Davarius Minor, 21, of the 5400 block of South Justine Avenue, was charged with firing the shots and Daquan Dunn, 20, of the 1000 block of West 104th Street, was charged with being the driver of the getaway car, according to a police news release. Two others taken into custody following the crash were released without charges, according to police.
After the shots were fired, people involved in firing the gun “jumped in a vehicle and fled the scene,” according to an updated police release. Four men or boys suspected in the shooting attack were arrested by officers after the SUV they were in was in a crash with three other vehicles near Roosevelt Road and Ruble Street, police said.
Officers took one gun into evidence, according to police, who did not clarify where the gun was found.
No shots were fired at or by police, according to the media notification.
The crash on the Near West Side just west of the Dan Ryan Expressway on Roosevelt led to at least one person being taken to a hospital, according to a Fire Department spokesman. One person, who was in handcuffs and surrounded by police, was placed in an ambulance at the Roosevelt Road scene.
