CHICAGO (CBS) — A police pursuit of two teen carjacking suspects ended with a fatal police-involved shooting on the Bishop Ford Expressway Tuesday afternoon.
Police attempted to stop a vehicle being sought in connection with an aggravated carjacking in south suburban Hazel Crest. At some point during the chase, around 130th Street and Bishop Ford, two men got out of the car and started running, police said. A foot pursuit followed.
One of the carjacking suspects was shot by a Dolton Police Department officer and taken to an area hospital, according to Illinois State Police. Dolton police announced Tuesday night the 17-year-old suspect, who had showed a gun, later died.
The other suspect, also 17, was apprehended by police after authorities set up a perimeter and searched along the freeway for hours.
Around 4:30 pm, the Chicago Police Department said the active police situation near 130th Street had been resolved. While they said to expect delays, all South Shore trains resumed service.
Traffic on the Bishop Ford was delayed and slowed in both directions.
