The shooting happened at about 3:21 p.m. at a gas station on the 9900 block of South Vincennes and resulted in the two females being shot while in their car.
As the shooting occured, an off-duty Chicago police officer who was still in
uniform after ending his shift happened to be in his vehicle at the intersection
and witnessed the shooting.
At that point, the officer pursued the offenders to the 9800 block of South
Throop Street where one of the men fired at the off-duty officer who fired back
at the offender. Neither the officer or the offender were struck.
The females managed
to drive themselves to 103rd and Halsted Streets where they were
taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in critical condition.
A male offender is in custody and police were canvasing the area with a
helicopter and were searching for two other male offenders.
