Shooting on Southwest Side leaves 1 man dead

The man was outside in the 3100 block of West 85th Street, part of the Ashburn community, at about 12:15 p.m. when a gunman approached and fired multiple shots, said Officer Stacey Cooper, a Chicago Police Department spokeswoman. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

  • What are we going to do to end the violence in our neighborhood? They shot a lady in the neck, on the same block(85th) within 24hrs? Time to be proactive in the community and save this neighborhood. We don't have to let the same things that happen on the east side spread to Ashburn!!

  • Yes, that is sad. I'm hoping that it wasn't the witness to his murder. He was my nephew. This is very hard on me and my family. Keep us in your prayers. He had just got off of work and was washing his car when this happened to him. We...

    Yes, that is sad. I'm hoping that it wasn't the witness to his murder. He was my nephew. This is very hard on me and my family. Keep us in your prayers. He had just got off of work and was washing his car when this happened to him. We as a community have got to STICK TOGETHER! These low life's are taking over. When we see a crime being committed call the police, stay anonymous, take pictures and so on. Close mouths can sometimes come back to hunt you. Ashburn stand up!!! Prayer changes things!

  • We need to meet with the alderman and express our concerns right away. He said he was going to address the crime in the neighborhood. We have to hold these politicians accountable as well. Its seriously time to nip this in the bud before it turns to Englewood because I will move .... POINT BLANK PERIOD!
