As of just before 10 p.m., traffic along the Bishop Ford was back to normal.
It was 6:15 p.m. when officers first responded to 103rd and Stony Island for a report of multiple people with guns. The suspects got into two different vehicles and police began pursuing them.
Video from Chopper 2 showed police focusing their attention around a four-door BMW – one of the cars police chased down the expressway after the driver refused to stop.
The pursuit came to a halt near 146th Street. The car stopped after blowing a tire.
We are told the driver then jumped out and ran down a service road and into a neighborhood. Police knew the man was armed.READ MORE: Family Escapes House Fire In Brighton Park
Neighbors witnessed officers take that man into custody.
“I was coming home from work, and I opened the garage door and I noticed that the police had the man on the ground They had him in handcuffs, and they were jumping over the fence over to the other side, and it seemed like they were looking for somebody else,” said Martin Jones. “He seemed like he was delusional. He had a hard time walking when they were walking him to the car.”
Martin said it was Chicago Police he saw arresting the man, and neighbors knew it was not normal to find Chicago city Police officers in their suburban neighborhood.
Chicago Police told us the BMW came back stolen, and weapons were recovered from the scene. Dolton police said a carjacking had been involved.
