Police recovered shell casings of another gang-related shooting in the (literally) Portage Park area.
CPD was looking for two cars a red Caravan and a white Toyota or Honda that were last seen heading south on Central Ave.
There was a POI with a facial tattoo being sought in the shooting last seen running west on Irving Park from Central.
Hey, Alderman Arena your plan for those 20 Section-8 CHA units sound like a really great idea, huh?
What did Einstein supposedly say? "The definition of insanity is to do the same thing repeatedly but expect different results."

Hi, I live on the 5200 Block of Pensacola. Wanted those around this area to know that about 3-4 shots were heard between 4:30 and 4:45 am 2/27. (Based on my husband and neighbors recollection). When I went out for morning walk at 5:30 about 6-8 officers were investigating in the alley of Lockwood and Pensacola. I want to inform others to help document the gun incidents in the area. Fortunately, no one was injured. However, we need a police presence to avoid these incidents from occurring in the future.

A man was struck in the head and his car was stolen by 3 male hispanics on march 4th. On march 6th around 9pm two vehicles were involved in a shooting where 10 gunshots were heard. Its getting worse day by day. Its not even summer yet.

Few squad cars at the business. Went inside & change was thrown everywhere. Cops looking around the store for evidence. Was asked to leave. Robbery I'm assuming?

Hello all i was awakened to 8 gunshots around 5am in the 5200 block of Pensacola. I called 911 and when i checked the alley i found 8 bullet castings. The police arrived shortly there after and collected the castings. For all of my neighbors, please be careful. If you see any suspicious characters please call 911. This cant go on and the more phone calls the more this crime gets documented. I never would have thought that this would...

This cant go on and the more phone calls the more this crime gets documented. I never would have thought that this would happen on our block. Call the alderman and demand more police service. He wants to bring in more subsidised housing that will bring more crime! We have enough to worry about now. There have already been enough people shot and stores robbed by gunpoint. Please be careful and aware of your surroundings.

Anyone else hear these? We called both incidents in to 911.

My girlfriend was attacked by a dog yesterday near berteau and monitor. Light brown possible pit mix. Dog is owned by an elderly woman, who we believe lives on marmora between berteau and belle plaine.
My gf had to go to the er, get a tetanus shot, and her shoe and coat were ruined. The police/animal control are looking for this woman. If you have any info, I would greatly appreciate if you could message me on here or call CACC.
This lady cannot control the dog. It dragged my gf in the street. Whatever you feel about dogs, this is a bad situation. What if it goes after a kid?

Saw cops, ambulances and yellow tape outside Charlottes earlier this evening (Austin and Gunnison). Looked like something other than a car accident. Anyone know?

Last night around 8:00 at Menard and Bernice southeast corner house (behind the firehouse)...2 male hispanics in their 40's were spotted trying to brake into a window by standing on the Central AC units..All while the people were home! Be aware of any noises outside and if that neighbors dog is barking his head off..there is a reason! Cops were called but the culprits got away. No neighborhood is safe anymore...Keep your eyes and ears open
