Gun shots at 3:33 am

Anyone else hear 3 gun shots? Sounded like it came from the Belmont and Pulaski vicinity. Then heard 3 more west of me at about 3:38. Sounded like that came from the direction of Belmont and Kostner.

    Actually it's Kilbourn Park. The area isn't considered Portage, Avondale, or Irving Park. We are a blank spot on map.

  • Scain09 if you are south of Belmont you are Hermosa. And they do have a very good neighborhood association. If you are North of Belmont you are Portage Park.
