- An armed 13-year-old boy wanted in a Minnesota shooting was arrested Wednesday by Chicago police downtown after they chased him to the Chicago Domestic Violence Courthouse, authorities said.
Having learned from a relative of the teen’s that he was arriving in Chicago from Minnesota on a Megabus, police went to the Megabus stop at Polk and Clinton streets in the South Loop and spotted him there around 9:30 a.m., authorities said.
When he saw the officers, the boy, who had a 9 mm handgun in his waistband, ran away, authorities said. The officers caught up to him a few blocks away outside the courthouse, at 555 W. Harrison St., where he ran onto a ramp in a prisoner van intake area, authorities said.
Running into a loading bay full of sheriffs and inmates though – that’s hilarious.
