A Chicago man, Torrey Lewis, previously facing 160 charges, including murder, has been charged in a new shooting after being found with two guns in a stolen car.

Lewis, who was on electronic monitoring, was involved in a gunfight injuring four people.

The state’s “free movement days,” part of the SAFE-T Act, allow suspects on ankle monitors to move freely for two days a week.

Despite being on monitoring, Lewis was not being tracked at the time of the shooting.

The Southland Journal reported that Lewis, “proceeded to travel at high rates of speed throughout the South Suburbs, at times reaching speeds of over 100 miles an hour, until he arrived at the scene of the shooting.”

This incident highlights concerns about the effectiveness of the SAFE-T Act and the release of repeat offenders.
