Good evening, everyone, it's 7:25pm. I'm finally back after taking two and a half days off from here. How are all of you doing, and did you miss me? Anyway, I'm monitoring until midnight, then I'll make a new post at that time and after the first call after midnight, I'll do some other stuff and then go to bed. Tomorrow, I'll monitor until dinner time. Back to the present, the sun's setting right now and it's in the mid to low 40s at the moment. We'll see what kind of crime happens with this kind of weather. Here's crime for tonight.
7:41pm - Reckless driver. 2900 block of N Kearsarge. Two kids on a 4-wheel ATV motor bicycle (I guess), circling the block.
8:00pm - Parker. On 2524's Beat.
8:18pm - Holding the offender. 3607 W Fullerton. At Tony's. Female being held.
8:32pm - Assist citizen. Diversey and Avers. Citizen needs help getting belongings.
8:46pm - Burglar report. 2951 N Lawndale.
8:47pm - An RD number has been pulled from the 8:18pm job. It's HS232122 with the event number is 15030.
9:14 to 9:25pm - Sounds like there is a 10-1 at Mayfield and Hirsch. Beat car 2531 responded to "Shots Fired" over there. As they did, I guess someone flashed a gun or fired a shot at the police, which caused officers to fire shots at the offenders. An offender was shot. A very rowdy crowd came out right after. Cars were needed for crowd control, as obviously, the people over there are mad with CPD. For the next several minutes, police/dispatch chatter followed. Update: An article is up on Chicago Breaking News regarding this.
9:33pm - Gang disturbance. 30XX N Monticello (exact address will not be given). They're loitering out there and the residents do not feel safe.
9:42pm - Beat car 2523Robert is on a traffic stop at 3144 N Monticello. I guess the gang disturbance is a code? They are the ones who responded.
9:48pm - There was a job at 3701 W Diversey, but it's coded by 2520.
10:34pm - Backlog in 25 at 22:34 hours.
10:37pm - Check the well being. Belmont and Central Park. Caller can't see well because they had too much to drink.
10:38pm - Domestic battery. 1736 N Central Park. Mom hit the caller.
11:08pm - Ambulance 80 is calling for a 10-1 at the 10:37pm job. Patient is fighting with paramedics. All available units are going. Supposedly, the guy's a mental.
11:11pm - A slow down is being given on the 10-1. There's not even an ambulance on scene.
11:12pm - Officers are questioning the fire call takers/dispatchers. The cops are clearly pissed about this. They clog up the air with comments (I would, too, if I were CPD in this situation). Beat 2520 wants Dispatch to have her supervisor to review the tapes of when this was called in. They're trying to figure out whether a paramedic or a citizen called it in. Needless to say, if a citizen called it in, they're in a world of trouble.
11:18pm - The patient from this 10-1 fisaco was taken to OLR Hospital. It'll be coded on CPD side's.
11:55pm - Parker. 2218 N Monticello. Premits.
