Wow you post a lot of info!
Wondering if you hear about shots fired around 11:15 pm. I counted nine. I'm around Kedzie & Fullerton and the shots sounded west of me. Warm weather is bringing out the trouble makers. Thanks for your info!

I didn't hear the shots. Sorry. I was already in bed by 8:45pm (since I have to get up 5:30am to go to school), and I don't think I could've heard them all the way from Diversey and Ridgeway, around where I stay.

Yes, the warm weather sure is doing that.

As always, you're welcome for all information :-).

We were outside @11:15 and heard the shots. We were in the alley at Mozart & Dickens and saw four young men in white shirts running North on Richmond. Couldn't really see more than that. Actually thought they were fire works until five police cars came screaming around the corners and alleys.

Anonymous 8:41am, it sure was.

Anonymous 10:17am: How many shots were fired? It sounds kind of intense. Those 4 guys in the white shirts were probably gangbangers (not totally saying that, but most gang members here in Chicago wear white shirts). Also, I think that fireworks should be called on too, as they're also illegal.
