2 detained after shots are fired during apparent carjacking attempt in Wrigleyville

Two suspects are in custody after shots were fired during an apparent carjacking attempt inside a parking garage near Wrigley Field early on Thanksgiving morning. No injuries were reported.

Citing preliminary information, CPD Officer Jessica Rocco said a 27-year-old woman was near her car on the 1000 block of West Addison when two offenders, a man and a woman, approached around 2:20 a.m. The male offender fired shots toward the victim after an “exchange of words,” Rocco said.

The victim ran from the scene, and the two offenders climbed into her car and began driving away, according to Rocco.

But they didn’t get far.

Cops who responded to calls of shots fired in the garage blocked the exits and took the suspects into custody before they could get out. Investigators found shell casings on the third floor of the garage and recovered a handgun.

Detectives are questioning the suspects.

Thursday’s incident is the second “shots fired” incident inside the same garage structure.

On October 30, two men escaped injury when someone fired shots at them on the garage’s second floor. While neither victim was shot, bullets damaged the parking garage and a parked car. No arrests were made in that case.
