A Chicago police officer was recovering at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, after a crash that left him pinned inside his cruiser late Wednesday night.
The suspect — whose name was not released because of her age — was due in Juvenile Court on Tuesday, to face one count of first-degree murder. The suspect’s 24-year-old uncle and a 17-year-old boy also were in custody.
The man, 20, was standing in a parking lot in the 100 block of West Garfield Boulevard about 3:25 a.m. when someone exited a dark-colored sedan, produced a handgun and shot at him.
The 18-year-old was standing on the sidewalk in the 300 block of West Garfield Boulevard about 8:45 p.m. when a dark-colored sedan drove past, firing shots.
Jeffery Smith, 26, was charged with aggravated DUI leading to an accident or death, in addition to citations for negligent driving, failure to reduce speed and a child restraint violation.
Crews worked for more than 40 minutes to extricate a 26-year-old man from the vehicle, and it wasn’t until they were inside that they noticed a girl was also pinned into the vehicle, according to police and fire officials.
The shooting occurred about 8:50 p.m. in the 1800 block of West Garfield Boulevard.
