Comment 1: "I live at N. St. Louis and Wrightwood. I heard 3 shots total last night around 2:45am. Any info on this? It was pretty terrifying.
Comment 2: "Did anyone hear shots fired around 3:00 AM this morning somewhere within listening distance of Kimball and Wrightwood? Two loud bangs woke me up, but they didn't sound like they were in my immediate vicinity. (If the police came, I'd already fallen back asleep before them. Neighborhood watch FAIL.)"
If you saw or heard anything, or have any information, please, feel free to comment.
UPDATE, 2/1/10: I received yet another comment about shots fired in the area. Two loud pops heard at about 2:45 at about Wrightwood and Sawyer. Two more loud pops heard twenty minutes later.

Two men ended up shot from this. Both suffered gunshot wounds to their legs. One of them was taken to Illinois Masonic while the other was taken to St. Mary's. If I remember correctly, there was a crime scene found towards the end of the block, closer to Lawndale. And, obviously, there was blood.
The only good thing to have come out of this incident was that the perps were arrested for it. But, unfortunately, this shooting was most likely gang related, so don't be too surprised if there's a retaliation shooting at some point in the near future. I do remember a cop saying it may have been Cobras who were invovled. They may have been in the offenders.
All I can, personally, say is that people living down there have better watch the crime activity, especially gang related, because there just may be a retaliation soon. Call the police for everything you see which can relate itself to gangs, crime and disorder. It's good the offenders were caught, but that may not happen next time.
Who's counting? Timmy, what's that question supposed to mean? The counting question means that, this is shooting #1 of probably many in Logan Square to come. This is the first shooting I've covered this year.

Our first issue of the month was the vacant properties at 2941 and 2943 N Avers. The property at 2941 N Avers had the door taken off, which is sort of good news, because now people can see if trespassers go in there or not. The property at 2943 N Avers had a broken window, I believe. Sergeant Weiglein told everyone he checked this out and notified the owners. They have 30 days to comply. The issue with the boarded up property at 3043 N Monticello was discussed with Officer Flores, from the CAPS office. As for the 2900 block of N Springfield issues, the resident complaining was not in attendance at this meeting, so this wasn't talked about. Nor did anymore issues come up for that block.
Are you wondering about the homeless guys? Well, they were certainly talked about. In fact, we spent over 20 minutes after 8pm, when the meeting was supposed to end, talking about it. They're not causing as much problems as they were before, but it's still a big problem. They still continue to loiter. They still drink and harass people. They still bother the owners of Red Apple and their customers. And now, they're causing problems at Dunkin Donuts, 3801 W Belmont. They're scaring customers away, harassing the owners, all of it. One of the cashiers accompanied the two owners and expressed real concern of the drunks causing problems. I can tell from personal observation that the owners of Dunkin Donuts are good people and that they want to help us in this situation. If anything, they need to be helped. They're starting to lose business because of this. However, the CTA bus shelter being removed from Milwaukee and Hamlin has made a small difference.
A woman who was representing Salvation Army at the meeting said that the drunks are victims and need help. They do need help, but really, are they vitcims? Not really in my opinion. They don't want the help, so why bother? But, we do need to do something about their behavior. Anyway, Alderman Suarez said he was the one who personally stopped the Salvation Army from feeding the vagrants. The reason may have been that the drunks create a lot of litter.
But the drunks weren't just the issue. There's also the daily laborers who gather at the Shell gas station at Belmont and Milwaukee. They've been gathering in groups of 40 and 50, looking for work. The problem is, they block everything off and then except people to feel bad for them. When the owner tells them to leave, they just walk over to the sidewalk. After that, as you can imagine, the police really cannot do anything due to the ACLU laws (which we seriously need to challenge, especially in this city). These people also critcize the police and residents like us when we try to do something about it. The owner of the gas station has been getting threats for trying to do something about this. So, as you can see, there's alot of issues on this Beat.
A sad, but true, note to bring up: Our two aldermen, particulary Suarez, said there's nothing they can really do about this situation. One resident, who's an active member of this meeting, suggested that the aldermen open up a hiring hall (after the father of the owner of Dunkin Donuts brought this up) for those day laborers so we don't have a problem with them gathering at the gas station. Alderman Suarez immeadiately got defensive, in my opinion, and said it was illegal to do this. Why? This is an issue that affects your Ward, Suarez. Well, all I have to say is this: if Suarez keeps saying he can't do anything, people may take that to heart and let him know in the next elections that his days of being the 31st Ward Alderman are over. Seriously. It may just come to that point.
Moving on to the new problems:
- 3149 N Springfield - There was an incident recently were someone tagged the building, per the manager of the building [this is a shout out to you, I know you're probably reading this blog now! :)]. They apparently tagged the roof. Alderman Suarez told the manager that he contacted the removal service and they should be out there soon. The police are looking into it. Alderman Suarez suggested that the owner got up on the roof and painted over the graffiti right away. Yeah, that's really helpful.
- 2900 block of N Kenosha - A resident reports that there are stolen vehicles parked on the block. They may be involved in some sort of illegal activity. Sergeant Weiglein tells us Officer Rivera, who works Beat car 2525, will look into it. He's very good at breaking up activites like this.
- 2800 block of N Ridgeway and Beat wide - This is one issue your's truly brought up. I'm concerned about the number of robberies that have been happening on the block. There have been two or three within the last few weeks, I think. There has also been more than a dozen robberies on this Beat within the last month. I think this is concerning. I told Sergeant Weiglein my concern and he said there will be increased patrols, because he's concerned about the numbers too.
> Alderman Reboyras is friendly, more than I thought he'd be. He seems to care deeply about the problem with the homeless men. Alderman Suarez seems to care, too, but he wasn't exactly too friendly and every time the members suggested something to him, he'd say there's nothing he can do. However, he told the business owners to always call the police if they've got a problem with an intoxicated guy or day laborer. He also encouraged all of us to do our part in this situation. Suarez seems to be especially concerned with this issue because there's a new school opening up at Milwaukee and Springfield this fall, in his ward. He's not allowing the homeless guy's activites over there whatsoever.
> Commander Lopez seems like a nice guy. He repeatedly told the business owners to call the police when they've got an issue like Suarez was talking about. He also explained to us about the street loiters and other questions people asked related to crime caused by these homeless guys. On a sad note, however, he told us besides trying to move the guys along and offering complaints for people to sign, there's nothing he and his officers can really do.
> The most incidents took place in the 3000 block of N. Pulaski Road. The most crimes were Battery again (24 reported incidents), Burglary (21 reported incidents) and Theft (19 reported incidents). The most incidents took place on Fridays (3o reported incidents) and Thursdays (25 reported incidents). Most incidents took place on the street (36 reported incidents), and in apartments (31 reported incidents). The most incidents took place in the 12am, 3pm and 7pm hour.
I'd just like to say again, this meeting has tons of people at it. We need that for every meeting. Show these homeless guys, robbers, day laborers, etc. that we're standing up to them and we're sick of Avondale being in a decline. Thanks to everyone for being there! It's encouraging!

2:35 to about 3:40pm - I haven't been paying attention. Sorry. I was waiting for my mom and sister outside of my house to come in with some groceries, and what happens? Well, some guy who I assume is a drug dealer, comes up to me and asks me "what the fuck you lookin' at!?!", "why you lookin' at me like you gonna do something!?", "get the fuck out of here!" and stuff like that. I explained to him I was just waiting for my mom and sister, and he keeps telling me to get out of here. I ran back into my house. I told my mom about it when she came in two minutes later. At about 3:25, we called 911 to report this. The operator forwarded us to a call back officer to do a report over the phone. We explained to that operator what happened and she said there legally wasn't anything to do a report on. So then, unhappy with that response, I call the 25th District station and ask Officer Morales on the desk to please send a cop over. She's like "you have to call 911" and I told her I did but they wouldn't send out anybody. Her response was "it must not be an emergency then!" and I said I was threatened. She told me to call 311. What good will that do? Half the time, 311 doesn't even pick up the phone! So what do I do? I called 911 and the police station and they wouldn't do anything for me. So now I'm really pissed off at both the Chicago Police Department and OEMC. Screw them, as far as I'm concerned. Why can't I ever get a cop when I need them!?!! But all of these stupid ass domestic disturbances make it through, and here I was threatened! This guy came real close to me. But now I have a question for all of you: should I go down to the police station and demand to get a report and to speak to a supervisor or the Watch Commander? Or should I just let this go? I'm scared and I'm afraid this guy may come back to kick my ass. If this happens, I'm fighting back. Why call the police? They don't do anything!
4:06pm - Criminal damage. 3847 W Altgeld. Three male Hispanics with white hoodies and baggy jeans just spray painted the building. The guys are heading towards Springfield in the alley. One guy actually has a spray can on him.
