Cabbie Shoots 2 People, Turns Self In: Police

CHICAGO (STMW) — A cab driver walked into Police Headquarters Friday night and turned himself for shooting two people at a Near South Side cab depot less than an hour earlier.

The Chicago Carriage Cab driver shot two people about 8:40 p.m. in the 2600 block of South Wabash Avenue, police said.

Less than an hour later, the man walked into Police Headquarters, 3510 S. Michigan Ave., and told an employee at the front desk that he wanted to turn himself in for the shooting, police said.

A Chicago Carriage Cab depot is located at 2617 S. Wabash Ave., but police did not yet have details on the victims or what prompted the shooting.

Police said one person was shot in the back and another was shot in the arm. Fire Media Affairs spokesman Joe Roccasalva said both men were taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital in Cook County in serious condition.

Police said the suspect would be transferred from police headquarters to a police station, where he will be questioned.

Area Central detectives are investigating.
