CHICAGO (STMW) — A bullet-riddled car found on the Eisenhower Expressway in Chicago early Wednesday might have been shot in west suburban Bellwood.
Bellwood Public Safety Director Andre Harvey said a resident noticed his car had been damaged by a hit-and-run driver in the 2400 block of Van Buren Street early Wednesday.
“We did locate a bumper off of a car, and … we did notice a couple of shell casings in the street,” he said.
Harvey said only one neighbor reported hearing the crash, and no one said he or she heard any gunfire.
After putting out word about the kind of car involved in the hit-and-run, Bellwood got a call from Chicago and Illinois State police.
“They had a vehicle that matched the description on the I-290, with a gunshot victim in it, who claimed that he had been shot, actually, in Chicago,” Harvey said.
