Two children's lives were threatened Tuesday when 4 suspects broke into a residence on Halsted Rd.
The incident occurred at 7:25 P.M. when 4 black males wearing masks entered the apartment. The intruders told the children's father that they would shoot the kids if he didn't give them money. The father and his two children were told to lay on the floor. After getting money, the 4 suspects fled on foot.
