Chicago shooting, chase injuring five on Milwaukee Avenue in Fulton River District captured on video

CHICAGO (WLS) – Five people were injured in a shooting in Chicago’s Fulton River District on Wednesday, west of the city. Now, a new dashcam video shows those horrible times.

In the video, you can hear a gunshot as two cars running down the road shoot.

A woman walking down a street hears screams and is seen hiding in the shadows.

Chicago police said the shooting began shortly before 5 p.m. in the 800-block North Milwaukee, near the intersection of Halsted, Milwaukee and Grand.

“It’s scary and makes you wonder what’s going on in the middle of the day, which makes you ask everything. It’s scary,” said resident Kara Schwer.

Police said witnesses told them they saw at least two cars speeding along the road, shooting one another. Witnesses saw a car with a gunman out of the window.

“I looked in the rearview mirror and I saw these guys staggering towards us and I was like, We’re busy. We’re on our way right now,” said witness Steven Niewiedzial.

Innocent suspects stood shot in the incident, according to police.
“The next thing you know is three cars coming towards us going to the other side of the car, shooting,” Niewiedzial said. “They were shooting at the boy in the first car. They were shooting at him. He had bullet holes in his car and he had two flat wheels and he was just going, you could see him scratching and going. And they were rolling out the windows and shooting.”

One of those killed was a man who was shot in the leg while riding a Divvy bike near Kinzie and Milwaukee. A video call shows a Chicago police officer putting his scar on his wound.

On one side facing the road, the second wounded the suspect, and, while the two were walking in a red sedan, were shot in front of the ground.

Another man, believed to be an archer, was also shot.

thursday, residents are still in shock.

“I don’t want to live in fear but at the same time, I mean, there are some things at the national level that we should look forward to related to guns,” said resident Blake Dunphy.

Roger Romanelli, along with the Fulton Market Association, was outraged.

“When the bullets fly, no one wants to go shopping, no one wants to go to eat. This is a problem in our town and we have this partnership money,” he said. “Let’s use the money to fix the crime.”

Police said, at present, no one is in custody. Area Three detectives are investigating.
