About a 1/2 hour later the same morning there was a 15+ gunshot fight on Hudson. Shots fired almost every night the last month on Sedgwick, Hudson, Evergreen, Blackhawk, Goethe, Cleveland or Mohawk. Anyone know why the police camera at Hudson and Blackhawk was removed? Someone was shot in that area last week.
