Shots heard on 1300 block of Chicago at 6am

I heard about roughly 6 shots just before 6am this morning in the alleyway by my home, near Elizabeth, followed by screeching car tires. This is the second time shots have happened on this block in the last two months. Did anyone else hear this?

  • KC resident!

    I think a quick call or email to 311 will at least get it on the cops' radar.

  • Always call the cops. Nobody on here can do a thing about it. Only the police can. You can still let them know.

The installation of the Bucktown board appears to be nearly a year behind schedule; the city issued a building permit to JCDecaux back in Dec. 2013 for the billboard at 1929 N. Paulina St., which carries an estimated cost of $873,562.

A Chicago billboard map on JCDecaux's website, though, shows that seven billboards, not including the new Bucktown board (which has an address of 1748 W. Armitage Ave. on the JCDecaux site), have been installed thus far.

...the city issued a permit to JCDecaux to erect a 20-by-60 billboard at 2742 N. Rockwell St. in Logan Square. The estimated cost of the construction permit is $873,562, according to...

But Jennifer Conklin, who lives near Armitage and Wolcott Avenue, about three blocks west of the billboard, said she's "seen worse" and thought they were "better than more taxes as a way to raise revenue."
