Two men are dead after an argument in Bridgeview (IL) and a police chase into Kankakee County Thursday. A 43-year-old man killed his ex-wife's husband, then took his own life after leading police on a chase down I-57.
Sergio Ramirez-Abeja shot and killed Santiago Garcia-Mendoza, according to police reports. The shooting occurred outside an apartment in Bridgeview just before 2 pm.
Abeja then led police down I-294 and I-57 to the Bradley area. There, police said he made a U-turn on I-57 and headed back north. He crashed his vehicle near Peotone and shot himself.
Up to two dozen police vehicles were involved in the pursuit. No other injuries were reported in the original shooting or in the police chase.
