For the second time this month bullets pierced the glass of a residence along 6500 N. Mozart Ave., this time shattering the front windows, smashing into a wall and splintering a television screen in the couple's bedroom around 3:45 a.m.

Larry Adams, 23, of the 1200 block of S. Carlof St. in Chicago, was charged with felony armed robbery after he was chased down by an officer near 1400 W. Pratt Ave around midnight. 

A CPD tactical team arrested a suspected bike thief who turned out to be a Black P-Stone on July 22 after he was unable to answer a salvo of direct questions in a sidewalk near 6100 N. Washtenaw Ave. 

The offender, 24, of the 3900 block of S. Princeton Ave., was observed about 9:30 p.m. riding continuously up and down a stretch of sidewalk without any apparent purpose. The officers had been sent to monitor that specific area, which has been harried by a flurry of recent burglaries.

A male and female who pummeled a man with a brick July 24 before robbing him for an iPhone 3 were arrested with blood on their hands and clothes near 6800 N. Clark St. just after midnight.

Tyrell Gibbs, 20, of the 7300 block of N. Winchester Ave., and Tameshia Hoard, 18, of 200 Julian St. in Waukegan, were both charged with felony armed robbery with a dangerous weapon. They are scheduled to appear in court on August 1.

A Sarpino's delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint July 19 in the entrance to a building at 1020 W. Winona St. The driver said a man standing in the vestibule had opened the door as he approached but put a gun to his head after stepping through the door. 

A 22-year-old from the 1300 block of W. 15th St. in Chicago was taken into custody July 22 near 1020 W. Winona St.—the site...

A 49-year-old man called 911 after he said a gunshot was fired at him on July 20 while he stood in his backyard facing an alley near 2300 W. Winona St. The victim admitted he was a Gangster Disciple with affiliates at 89th and Cottage Grove as well as in Evanston.

The proposed home of the brewery — 1221-27 W. Devon Ave. — is currently boarded up and protected by a chain link fence. But it could soon become D and G Brewing Company, owned by Loyola University grad Alex Drayer.

Loose dog at Glenwood and Arthur

There was a medium sized black and dark brown dog running around near Arthur and Glenwood this afternoon at about 2:00. It was male, unneutered, and seemed to be a lab mix of some kind. I would estimate around 1-2 years old. He was nervous but we were able to get him on a leash and the police took him to the station to see if he was microchipped.

Rapper accused of murdering rival in front of his kids

As Francis, 22, was retrieving a daughter’s bicycle from in front of his home in the 2000 block of West Arthur Avenue, he was allegedly gunned by Shawn Randall as Francis’ fiancee and children — ages 3, 4 and 7 — watched in horror.

    Yes, that's the building, and it may well be empty at present, it's just the last known address for this individual so that's what gets listed. I walk that block a couple times a week to get to Whole Foods and I must say it's been much quieter since that idiot was killed.

    Our criminal justice system (not everywhere, mind, I'm referring to Chicago and Cook County) is broken. Until we get a three strikes law in place, the same offenders will keep offending over and over as they please. The second problem with that is the police are stuck arresting the same a$$holes over and over, taking up a LOT of valuable police time with the same offenders victimizing more people through more robberies, batteries, burglaries, and then weapons offenses. That jerk whose innocent 7-year old was killed on the 4th of July has been arrested and convicted and released more times than you can count on your fingers and toes. He should never have been allowed out after the third conviction, years ago.

  • I noticed yesterday walking down Lakewood that this building is boarded up.
