A man who led Oak Lawn police officers on a chase showed a bullet wound when caught and eventually coughed up a significant amount of crack at Advocate Christ Hospital.
It began on September 16th with the driver allegedly speeding east bound on 95th Street at about 53rd Court, when an Oak Lawn patrol officer noted the car was allegedly traveling 55 miles per hour. The officer attempted to stop the car, which the officer stated traveled through a red light and then turn left at Kolmar.
The officer briefly lost sight of the car but a citizen told the officer that the car had just sped down the street. At the same time, the officer reported that the car appeared again from a dead end on 94th Street heading west. When the car turned left it stopped just short of the officer.
As the police officer jumped out of the car, the driver of the car also exited his vehicle with his arms raised. He allegedly told the officer he had been shot. The man, identified as Timothy Moses, told the officer he had been shot at “The Boxx” at 147th and Sibley Avenue in Harvey.
An ambulance transported Moses to Christ Advocate Hospital to work on his bullet wound. The Oak Lawn police did notice a bullet hole through the front passenger side door and a bullet casing on the floor behind the driver’s seat.
At the hospital as Moses was being intubated, the nurse allegedly found 14 small white rock like substances, believed to be crack cocaine, in his mouth. The Oak Lawn police alleged that the crack cocaine weighed four grams.
Moses was charged with possession of a controlled substance, speeding, driving with a suspended license, disobeying a traffic signal and not having proof of insurance. The Harvey police were notified to investigate the shooting. Moses is a 33 year old black male who provided a Chicago address to the police.
Timothy Moses is being held in the Cook County Jail with a $100,000 bond according to the Sheriff’s website.
