Shooting Near Grandparents Park In O'Hare Area Caught On Video, Police Say

Around 12:20 a.m., the woman was walking home from the Cumberland Blue Line station in the 5400 block of North Chester Avenue when she was stopped by two young men who demanded her purse, police said. A struggle ensued, and one of the youths pushed her to the ground and shot her in her stomach.

The shooting occurred in the same block as Grandparents Park, 5445 N. Chester Ave., next to an LA Fitness parking garage. The park sat in darkness Tuesday night, and multiple neighbors who declined to identify themselves said they were waiting for burned-out lights at the park to be replaced.

Ace Hardware

Did anyone hear about a robbery at ace hardware on harlem and foster tonight right before closing?

  • Based on the last reports I've seen, the criminal was not shot during the Walgreens robbery on North Ave. But I agree the employee was wrong to fire at the fleeing car.

    Instead of "There's nothing at Walgreens worth shooting someone over" how about "There's nothing in Walgreens worth stealing and risking getting shot at"?

    TDawg54, So, if you are at Walgreen's and someone is threatening your life, we should all remember that you said there is nothing at Walgreen's worth shooting someone over. That Walgreen's employee shot at but DID NOT hit anybody. It is Illegal.to shoot at someone that is running away from you. The employee should be arrested for unlawful use of a firearm. robin in WRP, were you there? You do know that the robber threatened someones life? Like I said to TDawg54 would you like your life threatened or maybe be killed because you don't like good people being able to protect themselves and maybe you also?
