Someone in the maroon sedan began firing at the Buick, striking the man multiple times with gunfire causing him to crash his vehicle near Larrabee Street – blowing out the back window.
One person who lives nearby described the crash saying it sounded like a multi-car pile-up.
“I’ve never heard such a loud sound ever before around my building at least,” said Leo Shulman. “That was the loudest ever. I was very suspicious that I heard some gunshots I wasn’t sure. So when I came out, I was thinking it was a pile-up.”READ MORE: 15-Year-Old Critically Wounded, Among 2 Shot In Belmont Heights Online Sale Meetup
