  • Catherine NO!

    I'm not clear on what exactly happened and why. Did someone on the party bus know the person in the SUV? How does a "verbal altercation" lead to an exchange of gunfire? Were any of the guns legal?

    I'm not clear on what exactly happened and why. Did someone on the party bus know the person in the SUV? How does a "verbal altercation" lead to an exchange of gunfire? Were any of the guns legal?

    "Chaz Johnson, 22, of Evanston, was shot in his left torso while sitting in the backseat of a car, and died later that day, police said." Was this person involved in the "verbal altercation", or was he in a third vehicle that had nothing to do with the "verbal altercation"?

    Also, in the comments section of the article I linked to above, a commenter points out that this MIGHT be the Quentin Payton who was shot and killed http://publicsearch1.chicagopolice.org/Arrests/History/17334800 In Nov 2016, a Quentin Payton was 27 and charged with "720 ILCS 5.0/24-1.1-A: UUW - WEAPON - FELON, POSSESS/USE FIREARM"

    This article https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20170315/edgewater/quentin-payton-chaz-johnson-party-bus-shootout-dunkin-donuts has his photo and lists his age as 28. Of course, it could just be a coincidence and these are two different men. Even if they are the same man, he still could've been wrongly arrested.

  • How does a verbal altercation lead to an exchange of gunfire? It happens every day..

    I don't understand your question about the age of Quentin. He could be 27 in November and 28 in March..we have a birthday and we get older.

    There have been gangs in the neighborhoods as long as I can remember. But in days gone by it was more of a teenage radical thing. Then they grew up and grew wiser. But is seems now the gang members are more adults. 40 and 38 years old, c'mon really, these jerks need to grow up and get a life or go to jail for good!!!

  • Michael McDonough Resident of BelCragin

    Right On Kapel2 They really need to grow up and consider themselves as foutunate that they are still alive and walk away from that lifestyle
