Chicago — Two men who were shot by a concealed carry holder as they allegedly tried to steal his car in downtown Chicago over the weekend were charged with felonies on Monday.
Prosecutors said one of the accused men, who had been shot in the buttocks, ran from the scene and tried to get help from two women by dropping his pants and showing them the bullet hole in his butt.
It all started when the concealed carry holder prepared to leave the Cambria Hotel, 32 West Randolph, around 3:40 a.m. Saturday, prosecutor Sarah Dale-Schmidt said. The victim started his black 2020 Dodge Charger with his key fob as he headed out of the hotel.
When he got outside, he saw a red Jeep with a broken rear window and someone entering his car, Dale-Schmidt said. Someone in the Jeep began firing at the victim, who returned fire.
The Jeep nearly struck the concealed carry holder as it sped from the scene, and he fired three more rounds, according to Dale-Schmidt. At the same time, the victim saw another man get out of his Dodge Charger, drop a small computer used to steal cars, and then run away, Dale-Schmidt said.
Shortly after the gunfire, surveillance cameras at Northwestern Memorial Hospital recorded Deangelo Webb, 26, tossing two items from the red Jeep as he arrived at the hospital emergency entrance, said Dale-Schmidt. Webb had a gunshot wound to his knee, and the two items he threw were loaded ammunition magazines, according to Dale-Schmidt.
The Jeep had been reported stolen in Chicago on December 7.
Meanwhile, Chicago police and CTA surveillance cameras recorded Sebon Grisby, 24, “running, limping, and grabbing his rear end” as he fled from the shooting scene, Dale-Schmidt continued.
He entered a Red Line station before returning to street level and proceeding to Wabash Avenue, where he ran up to a car and informed two women that he had been shot.
Grisby “lowered his pants and showed the women his rear end, and one of the women recorded this interaction on her cellphone,” Dale-Schmidt said. But Grisby left before the fire department arrived.
He later showed up at Lurie Children’s Hospital, where staff members transferred him to Northwestern.
Dale-Schmidt said Webb told police that Grisby picked him up in the Jeep, drove downtown, and then got into a black car while Webb stayed in the Jeep.
The next thing he knew, Webb allegedly conveyed, someone started shooting, the black car’s alarm went off, Grisby took off running, and he had been shot in the leg. Webb climbed into the Jeep’s driver’s seat and drove to the hospital, only to realize that there were two loaded magazines in the SUV, so he tossed them out of the car before entering the emergency room, according to his recollection.
He is charged with unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and possessing a stolen motor vehicle. His attorney said he is the father of a 5-year-old and works as a general laborer.
Judge Susana Ortiz told him he had to pay a $7,500 bail deposit to be released on electronic monitoring.
Grisby is charged with burglary. His private defense attorney, John Giralamo, said Grisby is the sole provider for his girlfriend and their one-week-old child.
Grisby must pay a $4,000 bail deposit to go home on electronic monitoring, Ortiz said.
