    Three wounded in Bronzeville shooting
    Three men were wounded, one critically, in a shooting early Monday in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the South Side. They were sitting in a vehicle in traffic about 2:25 p.m. in the 3500 block of South Indiana when someone in a black SUV opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

  • I agree. The neighborhood would be so much nicer without that stretch of 35th, between Indiana and Giles. I can't believe cops refuse to arrest the obvious drug trafficing that goes on that stretch. I see men going in and out of the hair/wig stores all day. I know they are not buying anything legal in there.

    @JRMD I can at least tell you that, personally, I do my part by logging a call to 911 every time I see a loose cig being sold or any other quality of life crime. Overall, our community (Douglas) doesn't have a high rate of violent crime relative to other parts of the city, so our priorities should be focused on eradicating these quality of life issues. At the end of the day, the community has to band TOGETHER and take back 35th from the fools who camp there. We have to hold the businesses there accountable to the point where they feel the heat as commercial neighbors. If that involves walking back & forth holding up signs, getting the media involved, and highlighting how ridiculous it is for all of these activities to run unabated a few feet from the public safety HQ, then that's what we as a community need to band together and do. Many of us have hoped that the surging residential developments would've spurred quality retail development on 35th by now, but it seems to be a slow process. Ald. King & Ald. Dowell aren't doing enough to address that stretch of 35th, no matter how many times they've been pressed. With the new lakefront bridge right to the east & CPD HQ/White Sox stadium due west, it makes no sense that the entire stretch between the Dan Ryan & Lakefront is not pedestrian-friendly, safe, and thriving. We have got to demand better.

    What about the water fountains in the parks? Have They been tested? Also, just curious are the people of the city of Chicago able to sue the city? They certainly know about the issue. The people of Chicago pay a lot for water. May they get some money back to fix the problem?
