18 year-old alleged gang member charged in ambush shooting of Chicago cops

Chicago's Southwest Side
There is some rare good news out of Chicago tonight. But the alleged shooter is still at large.

From the Chicago Tribune:
A reputed gang member has been charged for his alleged role in the shooting of two plainclothes Chicago police officers earlier this week in the South Side's Back of the Yards neighborhood.

Angel Gomez, 18, was charged Saturday night with two counts each of attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

Sources familiar with the investigation said Gomez was the alleged driver of a Chrysler minivan that was involved in the Tuesday night shooting in the 4300 block of South Ashland Avenue.

The suspected shooter — a passenger in the minivan who investigators believe used a military-style semi-automatic rifle to shoot the two Deering District tactical officers — remains at large.
