Was at Unity park playing with my child. Shooter on foot, West side of Kimball at Schubert...shooting towards Schubert...multiple shots fired. He was young, wearing a black puffy jacket with the hood pulled up, Latino. Walked away, South toward wrightwood. My child and I hiding under the park equipment. What the f*ck?!
i was sitting in my living room when i heard the shots. jumped to the window to see where it came from. the only person that didn't look paniced was the latino in the black puffy coat and blue jeans. i watched him walk south on Kimball, then pick up his pace. called the cops as soon as i could.
currently, there is a cop at the corner of Schubert and Kimball with the corner taped off. i don't think anyone was hurt, so that's good.
Padders - I am so very sorry you and your child had to witness this, that sounds terrifying. I hope the black-jacketed one was caught; whomever was is going to sing like a canary, glad to hear the cop response was swift and strong (including a helicopter patrol around 5:30 or so - as it should be for a broad daylight shooting after kids just got out of school near a playground. This is OUR neighborhood.
Alderman Carlos Rosa considering removing cul de sac @ ~ 2714 N Spaulding south of Milwaukee Ave that blocks Milwaukee traffic from cut thru to Schubert and then to Kimball. Open gang drug market nightmare Spaulding @ Schubert corner S8 housing before cul de sac built in 2000. Remove it -> cut thru traffic from Milw on neighborhood street enabled by traffic apps that helped create traffic nightmare on local streets in Leonia NJ near GW bridge to NYC.
