CHICAGO (STMW) – A chase between two cars on the South Side overnight ended in a crash and a shooting.

About 1 a.m. Sunday, one car was being chased by another near 87th Street and South Stony Island Avenue. The two cars were going west on 87th Street when the car being chased attempted to turn onto Stony Island, police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said.

At that point a third vehicle, which was not involved in the chase, crashed into the car being chased.

The occupants of the car chasing that car then got out, approached the car they were chasing, and opened fire, wounding a 20-year-old man who was a passenger in the car, Mirabelli said.

The gunmen then left the scene and as of about 9:40 a.m. no one was in custody.

The man who was shot was stuck in the shoulder and was listed in good condition at a local hospital, Mirabelli said.

Calumet Area detectives are investigating.
