Police say that the shooting took place at approximately 2:30 a.m. along the Chicago River on July 22nd, which left a male victim deceased and a female victim currently hospitalized.

A female passenger who was inside of the vehicle along with Crawford was reportedly shot in both of her arms in the incident as well.
The video showcases one shooter, who is a black male wearing black pants and a black t-shirt.
The second shooter highlighted appears to be a black male wearing a gray baseball cap, gray pants, and an orange or yellow tank top.
During the video, you can see the suspects walk along the bridge a few times during the lapsed periods showcased, when suddenly the man in the black shirt produces a firearm and begins shooting. Shortly thereafter, the man in the tank top also appears to fire off some rounds in the direction the other suspect was shooting.

In other investigations, police on Florida say they’ve recently nabbed three suspects whom they say were responsible for a vicious triple murder that happened earlier in July.

When speaking about the case, Sheriff Judd stated the following about the three arrested:
“We have locked up the three people responsible for the murders of these guys.”
The three arrestees were cited as 26-year-old Tony “TJ” Wiggins, 27-year-old Mary Whittemore and 21-year-old William “Robert” Wiggins.
The two Wiggins were cited as being brother, with Tony having been said to be the ringleader in the gruesome murders 23-year-old Damion Tillman, 27-year-old Brandon Rollins and 30-year-old Kevin Springfield. Sheriff Judd referred to Tony as being “pure evil in flesh,” and the suspect in custody totes 15 prior convictions, 230 felony criminal charges historically, and has served two terms in prison previously.
The woman among the group, Whittemore, is said to be the girlfriend of Tony.
Tony has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder, tampering with evidence, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of ammunition by a convicted felon. The younger brother, William, was charged with tampering with evidence and accessory. As for Whittemore, she was charged with accessory after the fact of capital felony.
Police say that after the ruthless killing of the three friends at the lake, the three suspects drove to a local McDonald’s and ordered 10 cheeseburgers and two chicken sandwiches – like as if a triple murder hadn’t just occurred.
William Wiggins was said to have then taken the truck the trio were in at the lake to the car wash the following day to wash the clay off and make it so it didn’t appear to have been at the lake.
Sheriff Judd thinks that the events that led up to the triple murder might have something to do with Tony Wiggins believing someone’s had tampered with his truck:
“The only conflict we see is this- ‘Where’s my truck? I heard you stole the engine out of my truck.”
The investigation is still ongoing, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
