Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:05pm. Well, I was not here for this morning because I was in a rush, LOL, but I'm here now. Anyway, I have word that some kind of shoot out happened at Diversey and Lawndale last night. A good source of mine tells me that a van's windows were shot out in this shooting and the police were litterally driving by as it happened, so they chased the offending car down Diversey to Ridgeway, where they made a right and made a left in the north alley of Diversey. That is where the red unmarked unit lost the offender. Also, today was my final day of testing, so I'm glad for that. So, in conclusion, here's crime for this Thursday afternoon.
2:46pm - EMS run. 1920 N Hamlin. At the Ames school. Girl cut herself at school.
2:52pm - Battery. 3943 W Diversey. Someone hit someone.
3:03pm - Sounds like either the 2:46pm or 2:52pm job was coded out 19BoyFrank.
3:10 to 3:29pm - Breaking news. Large fights are breaking out all over. First one broke out at Michelle Clark High School, 5101 W Harrison. Large group of people were throwing objects and fighting. 1576Sam called for back-up on that one. That one was broken up and four are being taken into 15th. Second one breaks out somewhere in 15. No word on that one. The third and final one (for now) broke out at LeMoyne and Linder. One of the 25th district cars said there were 25 people breaking into groups and walking in all directions. At that fight, people in a car pulled up and pulled a gun out on the crowd then fled north on Luna from the fight. This stuff is insane. I'm waiting on the big crowds to build up around here because I have a feeling they might.
4:05pm - Gang disturbance. 3628 W Shakespeare. Group of gang members doing "whatever they do" (quoted by dispatch).
4:26pm - Battery. 3636 W Wolfram. At the church. A priest is with a male who was beaten up.
4:32pm - Person calling for help. 3033 N Monticello. Female calling for help. An argument could be heard in the background.
5:07pm - A flash is given out from the 4:26pm job. A male 2, possibly Hispanic, 5 feet tall, wearing an unknown coat, sunglasses, blue jeans, with cheese (or keys) dangling from his jean pockets destroyed some church property and beat the crud out of someone. Police are going to tour the area for this offender.
5:13pm - Burglar alarm. 2853 N Pulaski. Alternative something. No further.
5:15 to 6:07pm - Took a nap, so of course I didn't hear anything.
6:08pm - One of the Beat cars needs a unit to drive in a vehicle for them at Schubert and Hamlin. Beat car 2543 said they will do it.
6:20pm - All of the rapid response cars coming out at 18:00 (6:00pm) hours in 25 are heading to Belmont and Central Park for a joint roll call with the 14th district at 18:45 hours.
6:39pm - Disturbance with a mental. 3603 W Cortland. A male needs to go to the hospital.
6:40pm - Battery in progress. 3700 W Belden. Group of males got out of a car and started fighting.
6:43pm - I'm going to go eat. I'll be back.
7:01pm - Beat 2550 says that there is going to be a combined mission with the 14th district tonight. Boundries are Belmont to the north, Central Park to the east, Armitage to the south and Konster to the west. All rapids that started at 18:00 hours will be used in this mission and they can take jobs. The 2563 team will also be in this mission.
7:20pm - I'm back from dinner.
7:30pm - Assist the police. 2504 N Monticello. Dispatch is putting the narrative on the PDT since it seems difficult for her to read it.
7:36pm - 1) Battery in progress. 4343 W Wrightwood. At Kelvyn Park High School. There's a group fight taking place. 2) Parker. Somewhere on 2523's beat.
8:25pm - I'm going to go for a little while to do some other things, but I will be back :-).
Around 9:35pm - A 10-1 happened at 1535 N Central. Huge fight broke out and someone started fighting with police which at that point, an officer on Beat car 2531 called a 10-1. Multiple units rushed to the scene and Beat 2543 took the offender to the 25th district for processing.
Around 9:50pm - Something went down on George (sounded like a street fight) in the coverage area. Not sure what though.
