Car Wanted In Bump 'n' Run Spree Caught On Video


Last Wednesday, CWBChicago reported exclusively that cops are on the lookout for a Chrysler 300 that has been used in a series of bump ’n’ run auto thefts across the North Side.

The suspect vehicle is a silver or gray Chrysler 300 with tinted windows, we reported. Its license plate begins with X92.


Two days later, NBC5 aired video of a bump ’n’ run that appears to show the 300 in action.

The television report briefly mentions that the car is wanted in a series of similar incidents, but the report focuses on the victim—licensed to carry a concealed firearm—who shot at a suspect.


Watch the video here. It will show you exactly how these incidents unfold.

Moments after the thieves have lightly tapped the back end of the targeted car with the Chrysler 300, the victim, wearing a yellow top, gets out of her SUV to look for damage.


At the same time, one of the would-be thieves jumps behind the wheel of her truck and speeds away with the Chrysler 300 leading the escape. A third thief appears to have been left behind by his two so-call friends.

  1. Too many armchair quarterbacks being interviewed by NBC here. Many of the news outlets in Chicago like NBC cater to Rahm and tilt their stories to benefit him and his agenda - he has direct access to their producers.

    1. I wish this comment section had a "Like" option because I like your opinion. I applaud the victim shooting at the criminals. Thanks to Rahm and Preckwinkle and Foxx and the ACLU and the media and the spineless libs like those interviewed for the news story, the cops no longer feel justified in taking care of criminals so citizens must take it into their own hands. How would one of those spineless libs react if their car was bumped and run with their kid in the backseat??

    2. The media push the narrative of a favored politician ? No way...

    3. This woman should be charged. You cannot discharge your firearm to protect property. It's probably said about 12 times over the course of the concealed carry curriculum. You need to be responsible for every bullet that leaves your barrel....and she was not. She gives concealed carry permit holders a bad name.

      I will give her props for getting a permit. More women should. It could be the difference between death or rape or going home unscathed.

  2. “If she was truly protecting herself, I suppose she had a right,” said James, a father and resident who asked his last name not be used. “But any time a gun is discharged by someone who is not a professional, it’s definitely concerning.”

    Since has a permit, she is trained James. Its so good to see you"suppose" she has a right if she "truly was protecting herself". I wonder if James supposes the violent thiefs have a right to carjack people in his neighborhood. This is a perfect Rahm soundbite.

  3. Can't wait to see James whining and crying when he becomes the next victim. Then he will demand justice and rant how the cops should be doing something about the crime problem. But until then he's a hipster punk that has a problem with a woman defending herself. And if she saw someone hiding in the ally they could very well have been armed. But better to just offer them a hug and a coke as they are just misunderstood and it's not their fault. What a sickening bunch of idiots they spoke to.

  4. Appears to me that what was involved was not "self-defense." There's not enough information to determine whether what she actually did was reckless. But you don't get to be reckless, even when you are trying to stop a criminal.

    1. If a criminal has a knife to your throat, is it OK for someone to shoot him dead? Or should we just think we don't want to be "reckless" so he can slash your throat?

  5. My guess is she will be charged later for discharging her firearm. In the class they taught us to only pull the gun out and fire if you are in eminent danger of getting killed or great bodily harm. You can also use your weapon to stop an aggravated violent felony. Considering she shot her gun when she had no way of stopping the crime at that point, and was not in immediate danger, she should be charged. But it all comes down to who she knows...it is Chicago after all.

    1. It wouldn't surprise me if the CCSAO goes after this lady harder than the bump n run crew.

  6. The story said a carjacker was left behind and ran into the alley where he apparently hid behind garbage cans. Witnesses heard her tell the guy to show her his hands. She didnt shoot at the fleeing vehicle. Gotta hear more before we say this victim was reckless.

  7. --- The first mistake the Lady in Yellow made was getting out of her car with the key still IN the ignition and maybe the car still running. If there wasn't any Key that car doesn't get stolen and she never has to pull her weapon. And if the Carjacker did try to take her Keys, well, she had her gun to stop that.
    --- As to her discharging her gun -- the way Lil Kimmy Foxx is letting Career Criminals and Gangbangers walk free, Kimmy 'better not' bring the house down on this woman with charges she'd never approve for Chicago's worst scum. And Foxx also better not make the ISP pull her CCW Permit & FOID Card, or have her firearm confiscated.
    --- Yes, she made a mistake but no one was harmed and the lady has tried doing all the right things by complying with all of IL's draconian CCW laws.
