Irving and Western blocked off

Just drove past Irving and Western.. the entire south side of Western has crime scene wrapped around it.. as well as the CVS.
Traffic is blocked from Rockwell east .
3 helicopters hovering around .

Anyone know what's going on ??

  • @Tim MC: I was responding to the comment by @smartypants: "Again police officers bring guns to a knife fight and kill someone. This offender may well have been a mentaly ill person. Does every crime in Chicago warrant a death penalty meted out by the CPD?"

  • Kodi,
    "Paper cut"? Stop being ridiculous AND stop being rude to me. I assume nothing.

  • Lol Joe I'm glad a lil range time makes you think you're some kind of hero but I still have my reservations. Even combat tested soldiers and policemen have trouble hitting their mark and often miss, not sure I have the same faith in your skills that you do.

    Combat and police are often shooting at longer range. Private citizen training techniques are taught for close interaction. I also guarantee you that I have more "range time" then the typical officer on the street. I don't need you to have faith in my skills, I only need faith to...

I also guarantee you that I have more "range time" then the typical officer on the street. I don't need you to have faith in my skills, I only need faith to protect myself and my family. I'm not shooting at someone for a stranger, unless the shooter threatens my and my families safety and life. That typically happens when he shoots or shoots at a stranger, then I will engage. I have insurance to cover my legal expenses, but not going through the hassle if I don't have to.

Attempt residential burglary

This guy was caught climbing a fence and tried to break into a residence near montrose and pulaski. The victim got home and saw him on video. When she confronted him, he pretended to be lost and fled the scene.

  • Marigold, try Surveillance Triangle at 4700 W Lawrence. They sell and also install CCTV systems.

    They installed a 55 camera system for our non for profit organization in AP.

  • Thanks for posting this!

    Happy the woman was not hurt and this burglar fled instead

Possible stolen auto

Dark blue Jeep Liberty. 4 flats, busted windshield, multiple parkers affixed. Reported it on 311. Carry on...

  • Alderman rosa is useless when it comes to getting city services done in his ward. I reported a car that was abandoned, had been t-boned, was parked along yellow painted curb, hadn't moved in 3 months. His superintendent promised they'd get it towed right away. 4 months later it finally moved.

    It appears rosa's only power as an alderman is to collect a check.

  • ward greenleaf Smokey and the Bandit, Hooper, Cannonball Run...

    Gary J, it's a part time job. Lower your expectations!

Gunshots or fireworks?

Been hearing a lot of pops tonight over near Jensen Park.... gunfire or firecrackers?

Anyone know?

Thanks.

  • Lots and lots of fireworks. The people across the street from me put on somewhat professional shows in their back alley on July 4th. It seems they're enjoying themselves tonight as well.

    Nothing to worry about.

Use caution disposing of gift boxes...

Going through the alley this weekend, I'm noticing all the television boxes etc. Remember, that stuff is going to sit there for days, giving bad guy a heads up. You could always put the 300" tv box in that jag off neighbors garbage across the alley...

Merry Christmas!!

  • @LauraLiz easy solution. Deposit your holiday trash in their bins.

    Chris: Except I don't know who does it. Also, I try not to be a jerk. We have started pulling them behind our gate until pickup days except this week the alderman's notice said to leave bins out due to holiday pickup schedule changes. So, naturally, everyone puts their junk in our bins. The old owner of our house likely encouraged this behavior but now we have to start discouraging it.
