Man critically wounded in Albany Park shooting

A man was shot in the head Tuesday afternoon in the Albany Park neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

About 3:10 p.m., the 21-year-old was sitting in the passenger seat of a car parked in the 4700 block of North Lawndale when two gunmen walked up and opened fire before running away, police said.

The 21-year-old was taken to Presence Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, where he was listed in critical condition, police said.

One of the gunmen was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, and the other, a heavyset male, had on a gray hoodie, police said.

  • WOW! A little before the shooting, I randomly decided to take the bus to the Kimball Brown line instead of walking. the shooting happened right in my walking path to the train. guess I made a good decision...

  • Hman Ravenswood Manor resident

    What a waste of life!! These pathetic losers. If they really want to go and shoot someone, why don't they enlist and go defend our country from a**holes like isis and other terrorist groups. Feel bad for their parents, but probably a reflection of them! Gangbangers suck!

New Thai option on Kimball

Hi all, I noticed something this morning that I'm VERY excited about. The former Coffee Berry location in the strip mall across from the Kimball train stop is turning into Ruk Thai and Sushi. I've always been vexed by the lack of Thai options in east/central AP (Thai Valley doesn't do it for me) so I'm hoping that this helps fill the void! They have another location near Milwaukee and Montrose but I've never been.

I was only driving by, so didn't get to see inside and have no idea when they're opening. Just wanted to share.

Happy holidays to us!

  • L.D. Pho used to be New Asia restaurant. They moved a couple hundreds feet east on Lawrence and they have THE best chicken pho in town.

  • Rob S. Albany Park resident, condo owner. Dog owner.

    New Asia has the best chicken pho or L.D. Pho has the best chicken pho?

Video Surveillance

I live in an apartment building and would love to get a recording system set up. Is this something I need authorization from my landlord about or could I just hook it up? I also want to be able to connect this system to the CPD somehow.

Rents may be going up, but residents say they're not going anywhere

Chavez is one of the few remaining tenants of 3001 W Lawrence Avenue, a courtyard apartment building with 32 units. In August, new owners bought the building and notified its tenants that they were all to be evicted. The plan is to gut rehab the units and turn them into upscale rentals.

Beats 1722, 1723, 1724 CAPS Meetings Being Rolled Into One Come January

Beats 1722, 1723, and 1724 CAPS meetings are being combined so that all can have monthly meetings. First combined meeting will happen Wednesday January 21st, 6:30 PM, community room of 17th district. Note the start time is 6:30, not 7.

I think this is a good thing.

    Thanks, Chris. That was a better description than provided by our CAPS facilitator. I, for one, do not like the change. First, the change in location. 1724 held meetings at Horner Park. We could walk to that. 17th precinct is a bit far to us to walk to which will...

    Thanks, Chris. That was a better description than provided by our CAPS facilitator. I, for one, do not like the change. First, the change in location. 1724 held meetings at Horner Park. We could walk to that. 17th precinct is a bit far to us to walk to which will make it more difficult to attend. Second, the time change. 7:00 was a hard start time to make. 6:30 is, obviously, more difficult. Lastly, and most importantly, our meetings ran long. Too long. As you pointed out, CAPS meetings aren't run the most efficiently (and that is putting it mildly). A combined one sounds Kafkaesque!

    So, I'm afraid the new format makes if very unlikely that will be attending any more CAPS meetings. Our CAPS facilitator stated that if the new format doesn't work out, they will go back to the old one. Here's hoping they do.

  • Chris Dick Johnson!

    I hear you on the time. It was difficult for me to make 7. 6:30 will make it more difficult.

    If it's any relief, once things gets structured, the tentative plan mentioned to us is 1722 @ 6:30, 1723 @ 7ish, 1724 @ 7:30ish. So the time might not be...

    I hear you on the time. It was difficult for me to make 7. 6:30 will make it more difficult.

    If it's any relief, once things gets structured, the tentative plan mentioned to us is 1722 @ 6:30, 1723 @ 7ish, 1724 @ 7:30ish. So the time might not be as bad for you.

    1723 meetings on avg run about 45 mins most times, at hot times about an hour. But that could easily be reduced to 30/45 with a more controlled meeting.

    1724 met once every 2 months, right? Going to monthly, with hopefully less items to discuss, might help with 1724 durations. I used to attend 1724 about 3 years ago, they averaged about 30 mins back then.

    Not trying to contradict ya' FCZ. I have a feeling first couple of meetings will be a mess. Just trying to have a hopeful outlook on it.
