Good morning, everyone, it's 12:26am. I don't even know where to begin this morning. The neighborhood has gone totally insane. Litterally. I thought Friday was crazy. Yesterday has been ... off the chain. We had one shooting (with several fights following it) at 3820 W George yesterday around 2:30pm. Read yesterday's post on that one. Then the big shooting happened. At 11:23pm. Four shots were fired. Several people, including us, called it in. Right after that, a male was shot at George and Ridgeway. He was rushed to Norweigan Hospital by a friend. Two crime scenes were found. Not one, but two. The first one was found at George and Ridgeway, then the second one was found at 2815 N Ridgeway. As of 12:25am, the entire 2800 block of N Ridgeway is still blocked off by the crime scene tape. The vitcim is said to live right on the block. I am shocked. Now people on my block are going to be shot?? What is this neighborhood coming to?! You damn right I'm pissed off. This is abouselty UNCALLED FOR! I hope the hell the cops find these little punks who did this shooting. I'm tired of this B.S! To the police: PLEASE, WALK THE BEAT!! Here is crime for today, folks. Be extra careful out there today.
