A man, 30, was sitting in his 2014 KIA Sportage in the 5100 block of West Montana Street when two Black men forced him out of the car at gunpoint, police said. The offenders fled in the KIA toward Laramie Avenue and the victim got in a Chrysler van to follow them. That’s when the Chrysler struck another car in traffic in the 2200 block of North Laramie.

The Chrysler and KIA hit several parked cars before coming to a stop in the 2100 block of North Laramie shortly before 2 a.m., according to police. The offenders fled the scene on foot after the KIA caught fire.
