Two charged in connection with Wednesday's shoot-out in River North (but nobody's charged with firing or having a gun)

Two men have been charged in connection with a shots fired incident that saw more than 40 rounds unloaded outside of a River North nightclub early Wednesday. The charges stem from the individuals’ alleged conduct against investigating officers and not with the shooting itself.

Arriving police officers tried to stop a white Rolls-Royce driven by 36-year-old Antione Davis of Hanover Park. But Davis “continued to drive and disregarded officers’ verbal orders to stop," according to a CPD statement.

Video of the incident appears to show the white vehicle pulling out of a parking lot while officers approach and lean on the moving car. One officer is seen leaning on the hood of the car directly in front of the driver.

Davis was taken into custody a few minutes after the video was made when the Rolls-Royce crashed on the Ontario feeder ramp.

He is charged with felony aggravated assault of a police officer and misdemeanor counts of driving on a suspended license and reckless conduct.

Also arrested that evening was 32-year-old Levertise Hewing. Police said overnight that Hewing struck a police sergeant who responded to the incident. Hewing is charged with felony aggravated battery of a police officer and misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and reckless conduct.

Judge Susana Ortiz ordered Davis held without bail and set bail for Hewing at $5,000.

So far, police have announced no arrests in connection with the actual shooting.
