Gunmen carjack woman at Lincoln Square gas station

Carjackers took a woman’s car at gunpoint from a Lincoln Square service station early Tuesday, police said.

The 28-year-old woman was at the Shell station, 5201 North Western, when two men forced her out of her white 2009 Nissan Murano at gunpoint and struck her in the head around 2:01 a.m., according to a CPD report.

One carjacker drove off with her SUV while another followed behind in a black Jeep Renegade that the crew arrived in, the report said. The vehicles were last seen heading north on Western Avenue. Police described the suspects only as two Black males, one of whom wore a black hoodie.

An ambulance crew treated the woman for her injuries at the scene, police said.

Since the carjacking, CPD license plate readers have detected the stolen Murano near 51st and Dan Ryan at 2:32 a.m.; near the Dan Ryan and 31st around 8:20 a.m.; and in the 1100 block of West Van Buren at 8:25 a.m.

Area Three detectives are investigating the crime.
