Does anyone know what happened last night near W Melrose and LSD/ Sheridan? There were extended howling screams coming from somewhere in the area. People in my building and the back of the building on Aldine were out on their fire escapes to look around and we were all yelling to each other asking what happened and that we had called the cops. I didn't hear any sirens though and the screaming stopped, which was the scariest part! It sounded like someone was getting murdered.

    What time was this? I heard some strange noises last night at some point though nothing quite like you described. Just thought it was some drunk idiot shouting. Like it was odd for sure but I didn't get the feeling someone was hurt/in danger.

    Thunk I briefly heard a siren like awhile after the noise stopped. Didn't stick around though. Just seemed to pass through.

  • It was Saturday night, maybe 7pm? Anybody that was home on the easternmost ends of W Melrose and Aldine would have heard it. I just hope whoever it was is okay.
