At about 1:45 this morning, there was an intense speed chase in 14. As cops responded to a fight at the club at 2169 N Milwaukee, they saw a car take off at a high rate of speed. The car went down Shakespeare to Campbell, then went down Campbell to Armitage, and took Armitage all the way west, past Central Park. The car was clocked at going over 40 mph. Beat 1499 told the officers to terminate the chase.

Hey Timmy-

Thanks as always for spending a little time on 14!

Love the info on 25, but also like to get other info.

Disappointing to see another shooting in the Bloomindale / Kedzie area. . . but interesting to see the anti-gang activity from the cops in the same general vicinity on the same day. Maybe they'll do some good.

Thanks again.

Not a problem, odc. Even though obviously 25 is my home district, 14 has to get at least a little attention from me :). It does cover most of our two neighborhoods, after all.

I'm also disappointed to see another shooting in the Bloomingdale and Kedzie area. This would be what, the 2nd or 3rd shooting over there in the last month or so now? But it is good to see the 14th District coopers proacting to it instead of reacting.

Timmy, thank you so much for you time and effort to inform people on the level of crime , the shooting on kedzie around bloomingdale is way out of control I live very close and have heard 5 gunshots today alone , then I was coming home and witnessed some gangbangers fighting and called cpd , and they never even came out. It is just sad , calling cpd is ultimately a waste of time , guess if it was lincoln park muggings they city would act as if it was the end of the world. Either way thank you again.

Anonymous, no problem. I enjoy doing this. I would have to say from the sound of things, it is out of control around Bloomingdale and Kedzie.

What time did the fight happen? I've been listening just about all day and didn't hear a fight come in over there on the radio, not unless it was during that period where I wasn't paying attention (3:05-3:36pm) or when I was eating (6:40-7pm).

As for the cops not coming out, that's no surprise in 14. Those coppers over there are really lazy. And I do agree with you if it was Lincoln Park, the city would act that way. I'd bet the whole police district would race to a job in Lincoln Park.
