toys for children

Hey guys, do any of you guys know of a place that's giving out children toys. I have four children. Just lost a client at work about two weeks ago.

  • How about their father (or fathers most likely) stepping up ?

  • You can post in Newspaper

  • I didn't understand your question? Are the children your clients? What sex and ages, whatever the case, assistance is available.

The gunfire erupted about 6:30 p.m. Sunday inside the Blackthorn Pub at 3300 W. 111th St. A fight broke out between two bar patrons and one of them pulled ot a gun and shot the other, according to Chicago Police Deputy Chief Berscott Ruiz.

Police officers chased the man with the handgun. The man, believed to be in his 20s, ran into an alley near 48th and Throop streets. "Partway into the alley, the armed offender turned toward the officer and pointed the gun at him," Velez said.

In another shooting in the Back of the Yards, a man was shot during a robbery about 9:10 p.m. Sunday.  The 33-year-old man was in the 2000 block of West 53rd Street when six to eight males walked up to him, Gaines said.

Mutahir Rauf, 23, a pre-med student at Loyola, was walking with his brother down an alleyway in the 1200 block of West Albion Avenue in Rogers Park about 7:50 p.m. Friday when two people approached them, authorities said.

A 22-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman were each shot in the leg in an attack in the 700 block of South Albany Avenue just before 7:30 p.m. Sunday, according to Police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala.
