UPDATE: Multiple reports of a sniper on Chicago Skyway shooting at cars - Skyway has been shut down
Final Update: NOT A SNIPER WITH A GUN BUT STONE THROWER.....Skyway closed after cars hit by rocks: 'The sun roof was totally smashed'
The sunroof on Lamont Clark’s car shattered just after he crossed the Indiana – Illinois border on his way home from buying cigarettes Wednesday night.
“We thought we had gotten hit by a car, we felt glass. I said, ‘Pull over, pull over, pull over’ . . .and we looked up and the sun roof was totally smashed in,” he told WGN-TV. “We don’t know if it was a gun, some people said it was a BB gun. We’re not sure. We don’t know.”
Clark said his car was the sixth that pulled over after getting damaged by what police initially believed to be gunfire but now say were rocks.
Police responded to a call of shots fired in the area of 105th Street and Indianapolis Avenue about 8:40 p.m. Chicago police, along with state troopers in Illinois and Indiana, shut down the Skyway for about two hours as they searched along the road.
