Gun shots at 5 am

Did anyone else hear gun shots at 5 am around Morgan and Cullerton on Saturday, August 16? Does anyone know if anyone is hurt? It sounded like a very strong weapon was used.

  • Stephanie Hardiman Simon Pilsenite, journalist

    It's still here. Visible bullet holes, broken glass everywhere. I figured they would haul it away or try to get the bullets to investigate. Kind of unnerving having it on the street.

Any boxing restaurants in Pilsen?

I'm looking to watch tonights fight of Porter-Brooks. It will not be a PPV fight; it will be streamed via Showtime Sports (premium cable). Is there any place in the Pilsen area where they might show it or I may call and request it? I am 19 so bars are a no-go. (unless they admit 21 and younger) Thank you!
