This Dashcam Shows Chicago Police Shootout With Carjacking Suspect [Video]
One day after a carjacking suspect opened fire on officers, the Chicago Police Department swiftly released dramatic dashcam videos from the incident. Police say the videos show Charles Lawson, 24, firing a gun out of the stolen vehicle’s window. A bullet hit the pursuing squad car, grazing the officer behind the wheel in the face. Lawson continued to shoot at another responding squad car and officers in that vehicle returned fire, police said. Lawson was not hurt. He crashed into a parked car near 100th and Eggleston. He appears to toss a gun out of the window, before he’s taken into custody. It happened around 10 p.m. Tuesday.
