    Police: 1 shot in Irving Park
    Live Broadcast WATCH NOW WATCH LIVE Chicago police said a man was shot in the city's Irving Park neighborhood Tuesday afternoon. Police said a 24-year-old man was shot in the 3700-block of North Troy Street around 4:30 p.m. Police said a dark-colored sedan pulled up next to the victim and began firing shots.
    http://abc7chicago.com

  • One article says Logan square shooting. Shows picture of 7-11. Another article says Irving Park talks about the shooting on Troy. And shows the picture of 7-11. There was two shootings within an hour of each other. And I thought this was Avondale still.

  • It's the local news, why would you expect them to research neighborhood names before releasing an article? According most maps not used by realtors, this happened in Irving Park. Specifically, the 3700 block of Troy is Irving Park east. The facts of the story doesn't change the fact that this kind of trash has no home here.

  • It was 1 shooting that happened on the 3700 block of Troy and the POS that was shot drove to the 7-11 at Grace and Kedzie. Whoever pulled the trigger should have done the rest of us a favor and killed him.

    The little boy toyed with a beaded necklace in his hands, wandered under the crime scene tape and struck a pose on the leafy Irving Park street Tuesday afternoon. "Say 'Chicago,'" Matt Stonecipher said as he snapped an iPhone photo of his 2-year-old son.
