Did anyone hear a loud boom in the middle of night last night? I think it came from somewhere near Argyle and Central Park or perhaps further west. Thanks

  • Yes! My husband said he heard about 5 gunshots as well around lawndale and argyle around the early hours of morning

  • Yes, we heard 6 shots at Argyle & ridgeway. Sounded like it was right outside our window. Terrifying.

    Thanks all. I didn't wanna assume it was gunshots seeing as we are new to living in Chicago.

  • robin in WRP I support a 28th Amendment 4Free & Fair Elections!

    PJ - please call 911 any time you hear (or think you hear) gunshots

  • Did you all call the police?

  • PJ Albany Park resident, property owner, cyclist

    Thanks all. Will be sure next time to call the police now that we know what that "boom" was.

    If you live on a this block take a quick look at your house and car for any stray bullet holes . These gang bangers are the worst shots I’ve ever seen . How many innocent children and adults have been killed by these guys this year alone ?

  • Why are you not calling the police every time you think you hear gun shots?

  • May be the boom sound came from the underground drilling going on to build the tunnel under Foster Ave? The tunnel will be 80 ft underground beneath Foster Ave from Springfield to Sacramento Ave.

  • ECM

    Also sorry to say very loud music from car in same general area early this AM. Please call police about this kind of thing also. Anyone else hear this? Both very unusual.

    I heard a loud Boom but it wasn't a gunshot unless someone has a cannon. It startled me and then a lesser boom followed. It seemed like a car but I'd never heard that noise before.

    I live by Pulaski and Irving so I get traffic noise from all over.
