Heard individual loud bangs from the distance from Melvina at around 1:00 am. I went on the police scanner and police said there were a bunch of calls of shots fired in that area. any clarification on what happened?

  • • At 12:31 a.m., an 18-year-old man was shot in Belmont Cragin, police said. The man was walking on the sidewalk in the 3100 block of North Luna Avenue when someone walked up to him and fired shots.

    The man was hit in his right leg and he was taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital in good condition, police said.

  • Michael McDonough Resident of BelCragin

    Thats a bit of distance southeast of Patterson and Melvina must have been a pretty quiet night to hear the shots from that distance.

  • I am almost positive those gun shots heard near the location referenced above were after 1am (closer to 1:30am) and not from the 12:31am Belmont Cragin incident. I recall looking at the clock when I heard them and it was after 1:00am. Anyone else have any insight?

  • You probably heard the retaliation. They must of missed. Nothing else reported in the area on the 6th

  • It was fireworks. Retaliation? Lol I hope that was a bad joke.
