A 20-year-old man was walking in the 700 block of East 131st Street at 10:55 p.m. when someone fired shots from a passing dark SUV, police said. The SUV then drove off northbound.
Deputy Chief Dave Delaney said the suspects broke into a home in the 7900 block of West 131st Street around 3:30 a.m.
A man who was alleged to have fired a gun on a Bridgeport neighborhood street late Saturday was apprehended by police not long afterward, but not before he led police on a pursuit that stretched more than 16 miles south, ending after he abandoned his car in the Far South Side Altgeld Gardens area.
Police were asking for the public’s help in locating the driver who struck an 8-year-old boy on the Far South Side on Wednesday and fled the scene.
