Shots fired in Bridgeport last night

Does anyone know about shots fired near St. Mary's church (32nd & Morgan) in Bridgeport last night around 12:30am? We heard them pretty clearly and called it in but no police activity or squealing tires we know of afterwards. Hopefully a false alarm!?

  • Does anyone know what relation there is (if any) to the incident at 31st and Aberdeen today? This morning, someone fired at a passing car. Holden School had a soft lockdown.

3334 S. May, MULTI - UNIT STOP WORK ORDER NOTICE FROM CITY OF CHICAGO

does anyone know why the City posted a Stop Work Order notice on the multi-unit of 3334 S. May -- any information would be helpful as it is under contract

  • Best way to find out is to call 311 or your alderman's office.

  • Usually just permit problems

  • There was work done in the basement without obtaining plans and or a permit. The work could've been done recently or in the past. If it was done by a previous owner it's up to the new owner to resolve the issue.
