Police are warning residents about a pair of armed robberies reported less than 15 minutes apart last week in Lawndale on the West Side.
In each case, two people approached a victim, displayed a handgun and demanded property or took it by force, according to a community alert from Chicago police.
The first robbery occurred at 9:38 a.m. Aug. 7 in the 1200 block of South St. Louis Avenue, police said. The second occurred in the same block about 9:50 a.m.
The suspects were described as males between 17 and 20 years old, standing 5-foot-6 to 6 feet tall and weighing 150 to 170 pounds, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Area Central detectives at 312-747-8380.
Police responded to a ShotSpotter alert in the 5900 block of South Ashland Avenue when they were shot at, police said. Five men were later taken into custody, two of whom were wounded. No officers were hurt.
The bodies of three men have been removed from an apartment building that collapsed May 28. One survivor is suing the current and former owners, alleging they failed to notify residents of deteriorating conditions.
