Gunshots fired last night

Did anyone else hear that? About 2:30am roughly 8-10 shots were fired fairly close by. Anyone know what happened or what that was? Is everyone ok? Scary....

  • Call 911 if you hear anything. Attend 1723's CAPS meeting to report these incidents and the cars involved.

  • inssane North Sider since 1981

    That's too bad, not much has slowed down.
    I will keep an eye for those cars as I travel these areas along Irving frequently.

    Jezz - race? In what capacity did her phone get stolen? Do they just pull up to you while you are walking?

    Not to stir the pot, but these are perfect examples why I have my CCL now.
    Stay safe

  • Bell Elementary School reviewed

    I do not recommend this school for anyone who has a deaf child. The principal is very inexperienced and is just worried about the how everything looks to impress outsiders. They confuse children and families.

Increased gang-activity

Everyone should be very alert around Bernard,St Louis,Berteau and Cullom avenues. My brother and two cousins were attacked by gang-members on Saturday afternoon. The individuals are in a red SUV type car and a black navigator with temporary license plates. They are flashing gang signs and are armed.

  • we had to call on some thugs representin on our corner last night, they were running up and down central park near cullom shouting gang c*&p (the software here doesn't allow that word?!). I do not know if the cops showed, this was around 9 last night
