in Lake View (above) and Lincoln Park (below).
Officers searching the area for the offenders were flagged down by a witness who reported that the 7-Eleven at 1349 W Fullerton had also just been robbed by two gunmen with similar descriptions armed with a silver handgun. One wore a black track suit and other a white tracksuit.
NotableNo connection has been drawn between this morning’s robbery on Lincoln and another gun-related incident in the store’s parking lot early Friday.
In that incident, multiple witnesses reported that shots were fired outside the store by black or Hispanic men in a white Dodge Ram or white minivan with tinted windows. No one was hit by the gunfire.
The shots were reported at 1:53AM on Friday. The Clark Street 7-Eleven store was robbed 90 minutes later.
