Suspect and Walgreens Security Guard Exchange Gunfire on West North Avenue

An armed robbery occurred around 9:00 PM at the Walgreens at 2727 West North Avenue on Wednesday Night.  
A suspect entered the store armed with a handgun and demanded money from the cashier.  
The suspect fled from the store with the cash and got into a 1997 Chevrolet Blazer and drove away.  
A security guard from the store followed the suspect’s vehicle before the Chevrolet Blazer crashed into a light pole near 27 and Galena.  
Both the suspect and the security guard exchanged gunfire but neither was injured.  
The suspect then fled on foot.  A .380 semi-automatic gun was found inside the suspect’s vehicle.  
A few hours later, officers arrested the 37-year-old male suspect at a home in the 1200 block of South 15 Street.  
The security guard will be ordered into the District Attorney’s Office tomorrow for his case to be reviewed.
