BREAKING: Shot Fired During Armed Robbery of Three Loyola Students Early Sunday Morning

Alanna Demetrius | The PhoenixTwo cases of armed robbery have occurred against Loyola students within the past week.

Three Loyola students were victims of an armed robbery early May 29 in the 6500 block of N. Glenwood Ave., in which there was a shot fired, around a half-mile away from Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus.

A 20-year-old male, 21-year-old male and a 21-year-old female were confronted by three unknown male offenders exiting a parked white SUV in the 6500 block of N. Glenwood Ave at around 1:45 a.m., according to a statement released by the Chicago Police Department (CPD). 

One of the offenders reportedly displayed a handgun and demanded the students hand over their personal belongings, including their backpacks, cell phones and wallets, according to a crime alert released by Loyola’s Campus Safety following the incident. 

The offenders fled the scene in their vehicle, after one of the unidentified males fired one shot from his handgun in the direction of the students, according to CPD. None of the students were injured in the incident and no one has been taken into custody, according to CPD. 

This case of armed robbery against Loyola students comes just four days after a previous case in which two Loyola students were robbed in an alleyway between Albion and Loyola avenues next to the Chicago Transit Authority Red Line tracks on May 25.   

Area Three Detectives are beginning to investigate the incident, according to CPD. At this time, there is no known connection between the previous armed robbery case against Loyola students and the one that took place on May 29, according to CPD.
