Police chase, shoot armed robbery suspect in Bucktown

Chicago police shot an armed robbery suspect after a chase on the near North Side.

Police say the man robbed a Subway sandwich shop in the 800 block of North State Street just before midnight and then took off in a car.

The police chase ended when the suspect tried to drive into a police officer, who shot the man.

The suspect then crashed into a parked car near the intersection of North Avenue and Milwaukee in the Bucktown neighborhood.

His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Police say the robber is believed to be the same man who robbed more than a dozen North Side restaurants and stores in in the last month.

      For all we know you could be a criminal. That doesn't excuse what they do, but if the man didn't display a weapon, why shoot him while he is in the car? All the facts are not stated. He could have had a flashlight.

        The article clearly states that the suspect tried running down an officer. That is attempted murder on a police officer. It is clearly a justified shooting. Unfortunately, the suspect survived. This officer should hit up the gun range so that next time he hits the bullseye.

        A car is a weapon

        "His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening".
        WHY? If my life depended on my ability to center mass a target (as it once did) I would live at the range till I could.
        And don't give me any crap about the PD dosen't pay me to go or pay for my ammo

    You can use your CAR as a WEAPON.

    STOP sticking up for the criminals

    He could have has a Flash light, and if he held it or raised it, the cops have every right to shoot them.

    You should not be committing any crimes. You get shot, that's what you deserve.

    These cops need to head back to the shooting range. Their aim is worse than sucky gangbangers. They need to learn to AIM TO KILL!
