How Safe is Chicago?
- An ambulance carrying a patient was one of two vehicles damaged when a person opened fire Thursday on the Dan Ryan Expressway, according to Illinois State Police.
The Superior ambulance and a car were struck by gunfire about 3:15 p.m. when they were traveling north on Interstate 94 near 31st Street, a state police sergeant said.
The ambulance was occupied by at least one employee and a passenger in the rear, while the car had two occupants.
This is becoming a near-weekly occurrence, but hey, Crime is Down. Let's see if the State counts this as Criminal Damage to Property, because you know "On the Highway" = "Not in Chicago" per CompStat!
