Man accused of kidnapping, shooting at girlfriend in Englewood

Dylan Coons was taken into custody after car chase


Englewood police arrested a man on suspicion of shooting twice at a woman as she tried to run away, catching up to her, forcing her into his car and attempting to flee the area, according to a news release.

The victim, 27, told police that 26-year-old Dylan Coons fired a gun at her, but she wasn't struck, and he then dragged her into a dark-colored Mercedes.

Officers were dispatched to the area where the gunfire was reported, in the 3600 block of South Delaware Street, about 2 p.m. on May 16, and then located the car in the 4000 block of South Broadway.

The driver left the area in the Mercedes ahead of the police and pulled into the backyard of a residence in the 3800 block of South Clarkson Street, then tried to drive away from that location but hit a parked vehicle. Coons, the driver, was taken into custody, and police recovered a pistol and rifle from the car.

The woman and Coons have a domestic relationship, police said.

Coons was jailed on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder, kidnapping and other charges. He was jailed on a no-bond hold. Further information was not available.
