Recent Lincoln Square Violence a 'Shock to the System,' Police Say

...The Jan. 6 shooting, which started on Lawrence Avenue and spilled over onto Bell and Argyle, was sparked by a "personal beef" between two gang members who live in the district...

• Detectives are reviewing multiple videos of the Jan. 20 armed robbery of Windy City Liquors, 4959 N. Damen Ave. "It's just a matter of time before we get these guys," Loughran said of the three masked robbers who made off with $600.

• A dozen neighbors called in reports of shots fired at Winnemac Park, 5101 N. Leavitt St., just after midnight Sunday. Police combed the area twice — immediately following the calls and again at 8 a.m. — and no shell casings or other damage were found after "extensive searches," Loughran said.

The 47th Ward office did confirm that shell casings were found at Cullom and Claremont, in the 19th District, where shots were reported fired at nearly the same time as at Winnemac Park.

    Recent Lincoln Square Violence a 'Shock to the System,' Police Say
    LINCOLN SQUARE - Statistically, crime in the 20th Police District is "by far" the lowest in all of Chicago, but a shooting on Lawrence Avenue, an armed robbery on Damen and multiple reports of shots fired over the weekend have been a "shock to the system," police told worried residents Wednesday night.

    I agree with you for the most part.

    And part of your statement is my argument. However, society as a whole cannot just turn the cheek , move to the burbs or "Lincoln Park" and think two things; not going to effect them and not their problem. Whatever the reasons a lot of the youth today are a complete mess. It's the old saying; "it takes a village." What Wheaton and Naperville may have to deal with is the heroine addictions, or the nonsense drugs some teenagers are trying. Whether at a party or just because.
    Therefore , thumbs up or down. I do not live in a bubble, things are either black and white for me( just a phrase.) No in between

  • @ Lynette N

    Exactly! Let's continue to stick together and help somehow. I'm not claiming to know all the answers. But hell , my way of trying is through volunteering. Not sit back and just watch/read news to criticize about this or that, etc. and no, not one person can change the world , but for every teenager that I can try and help and make a difference in their lives , is maybe, just maybe ,one positive outcome within society .

    Lets hope they build something nice. It's a shame it sat vacant for so long.

  • Why is it a "land grab" if the small parcel of land was purchased legally and above the board?
