I live on Norfolk between Houston and Stanton, and last night before 5am I was awoken by a cop/suspect chase on my street. A tons of cops showed up and parked it on my block for a few hours…it seemed pretty heated. I never learned what happened or if they caught a suspect. Any idea what happened?
nmbarto has more on the chase. Suspect is still at large:
I live at 170, and was awoken by “get down” . Person entered 168 Norfolk and then escaped into the backyard, then jumped the fence into 170 Norfolk’s courtyard and then jumped the 8ft. fence into the back alley that 172 and 170 share. Police searched for 2 hours and did not catch him. He has a weapon.
