Armored Vehicle, Cops With Rifles Crowd Chicago Heights Street


A large crowd of Chicago Heights police officers—including a slow-rolling armored vehicle—were patrolling Tuesday through the streets of the south suburb.

Sky 5 was over the scene about 4:45 p.m. and observed the large gathering of officers walking down the middle of the 600 block of Andover Street. Several residents could be seen on the front lawn of a home, including small children, but no one appeared to be responding to anything urgently.

An email to the chief of police was not immediately responded to. A person who answered the phone at the Chicago Heights Police Department said no one was available to offer details or an explanation for the large police presence.
