Man arrested in Brighton Park robbery

Chicago police arrested a man they say shot at them, after he robbed a T-Mobile store in the Brighton Park neighborhood.

The incident happened near 47th and South Kedzie Avenue about 8 p.m. Friday night.

According to police, a group of men walked into the store, demanded cash, and allegedly held some customers hostage for a short while.

When police arrived, they engaged in a shootout with the suspects. The men ran out the back of the store.

Officers did find one gunman three hours later, hiding in someone else’s basement in the 4600 block of South St. Louis Avenue, police said.

A gun was confiscated, and charges are expected to be filed against the man soon.

Officers are still looking for at least one other suspect.
