Police are warning residents in Mount Greenwood and Beverly about two armed carjackings Sunday believed to be related.

The first attack happened about 3:40 a.m. in the parking lot of a restaurant in the 3100 block of West 103rd Street, Chicago police said. Three people demanded a person’s car at gunpoint.

Two witnesses in the restaurant tried to help the victim, but were robbed by the gunmen as they left the restaurant, police said. One of the gunman fired shots but did not strike anyone. The trio fled in the victim’s blue Kia.

About 5 a.m., the stolen Kia was used in the carjacking of a ride-share driver who was waiting for his customers in the 10200 block of South Oakley Avenue, police said.

The suspects were described as three males between 16 and 18 years old wearing dark clothing.
