A person was in custody after allegedly shooting at three drivers Thursday morning on Lake Shore Drive near Bronzeville and on Halsted Street in University Village.
No one was injured in the seemingly random string of shootings, which started shortly before 9 a.m. near the lake at 35th Street and ended minutes later near the University of Illinois at Chicago.
It wasn’t clear if the shootings were related to the Tuesday road-rage shooting of a 1-year-old boy on Lake Shore Drive near Grant Park.
Thursday’s string of shootings began at 8:55 a.m. as a man drove on northbound Lake Shore Drive near 35th Street and reported being shot at by someone in a gray Nissan, police said.
Two minutes later, at 8:57 a.m., another man in a vehicle reported being shot at by someone in a gray Nissan on northbound Lake Shore Drive near 25th Street, police said. The driver of the Nissan began “jockeying” for a lane, police said. Someone then rolled down a window and shot at the other driver. The Nissan then entered Interstate 55.
At 9:05 a.m., police said they received another call of gunfire from a gray Nissan in the 500 block of South Halsted Street, near Harrison Street and the University of Illinois at Chicago. The victim was a female inside another vehicle, police said.
Police then arrested someone in connection to the shootings, although a police spokeswoman couldn’t immediately provide more details.
No charges have been filed.
