Gunshots in Rogers Park lead to lockdown of two schools

Gunshots were fired in Chicago’s Rogers Park.

Police pursued a car into Evanston.

The suspects fled on foot, leading to the lockdown of two schools.

Two suspects were apprehended.

Here is the story from Patch:

Evanston police arrested two individuals after a manhunt on Judson Avenue this morning following a call of shots fired in Rogers Park.

Around 10:50 a.m. this morning, police learned that a car involved in the incident had driven into Evanston via Sheridan Road, according to a release from Evanston Police Cmdr. Jason Parrott.

Evanston Police tracked down the car involved in the incident near Judson Avenue and Greenwood Street, at which time the occupants got out and started running away from police. Neighbors in the area reported lots of police activity as officers searched the area for the suspects.

Police eventually arrested two individuals on charges of possession of a firearm, but were unable to find a third occupant of the car. They also recovered the gun from the vehicle, and are focusing their investigation on the two individuals in custody, according to Parrott.

While police searched for the suspect, Lincoln Elementary School and Chiaravalle Montessori School both went on lockdown, according to Evanston Now. The schools reopened when police called off the search around noon.
