Shot fired, no one injured during apparent robbery attempt in Lincoln Park

At least one shot was fired early Thursday during an apparent robbery or carjacking attempt in Lincoln Park.

A 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman told police they were inside a Nissan Maxima on the 800 block of West Dickens when a man knocked on one of the car’s windows with a handgun just after midnight, according to a CPD spokesperson. The victims reported that the gunman was accompanied by two other men and all of the offenders were wearing masks.

Police said the gunman fired a shot at the vehicle when the victims sped from the scene. One of the car’s windows was shattered, the spokesperson said, but neither victim was injured.

Officers found a spent shell casing on Dickens between Fremont and Dayton streets.

Area Central detectives are investigating.
