At 1:45 a.m., a man was driving southbound on Dodge Avenue when he noticed a car following him.

The 24-year-old man said he was at the intersection of Dodge Avenue and Emerson Street when he observed a Dodge Charger was tailing him, said Evanston Police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan. At the intersection of Main Street and Dodge Avenue, the man said the car pulled up alongside his car. The front-seat passenger, described as a white male, then pointed a gun at the 24-year-old.

The 24-year-old turned east on Main Street and fled the area. The other car continued south on Dodge Avenue.
