Ambulances Needed In The 'Hood

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:24pm. School was not good whatsoever. I'm just glad to be here. I may stay home tomorrow (not sure yet). Anyway, it's real warm out. It's in the 80s. I don't have anything else to say, so here's crime for this afternoon and early evening.

3:27pm - An officer on 2523 is not feeling well. Ambulance requested right away. Whatever's going on, I hope the officer is ok and I wish them a speedy recovery. They're by the AT&T on Belmont near Harding.

3:28pm - Ambulance also needed at Kostner and Altgeld. Reason? A kid was hit by a car.

3:38pm - An RD number has been pulled from the 3:28pm thing. It's HS257298 with the event number of 10454.

3:48pm - Person w/ a gun. 2945 N Kenosha. At Ken-Well Park. A teacher is with students in the park for some kind of practice and they were informed that 10 gang members are in the park with guns.

3:52pm - 2525 is riding with the injuried officer to Swedish Covenant.

4:01pm - Multiple calls starting to come in on Ken-Well. A red SUV's involved. Gangbangers in the vehicle had guns and another group on foot is chasing the van.

4:07pm - 2599 says the officer is fine. Thank God. I was worried about them. I'm thinking they'll be back to work in a couple of days.

4:24pm - An update just came in on the 4:01pm job, but the dispatcher's not "supposed to read it out". Gee, I wonder why. Probably because of my blog. Heh, oh well. Probably something I didn't want to know anyway.

4:25pm - Gang disturbance. Kelvyn Park.

4:31pm - Domestic battery. North and Central Park. Boyfriend hit the caller and hurt the caller's leg.

4:47pm - Battery in progress. 18X1 N Monticello. Gangbangers fighting and throwing bricks.

4:48pm - The 4:47pm job is now a "person w/ a gun" call. But it's an off duty PO who has several people on the ground.

4:49pm - Shots Fired. Cortland and Monticello. Gangbangers are shooting. Related to the fight being called in nearby.

4:52pm - A slow down is being given with that gang fight. No shots fired.

5:05pm - Gang disturbance. Wabansia and Central Park. By the church. They're throwing (up) signs and bricks.

5:08pm - The 4:47/4:48/4:49/5:05pm jobs are coded. They're all related.

5:09pm - Disturbance. Cortland and Springfield. Kids throwing eggs at the school.

5:33pm - 1) Battery. Wrightwood and Kostner. A female hit the caller and fled. 2) Disturbance. Schubert and Ridgeway.

5:48pm - Gang disturbance. Kelvyn Park. They're on the Parker side. They are causing a ruckus and appear ready to fight.

5:58pm - Domestic battery. 3944 W Cortland. Granddaughter's boyfriend is fighting everyone.

5:59pm - Battery in progress. Koz Park. On the Diversey side near the basketball court is 10 males beating on three males.

6:12pm - They're calling back on the 5:09pm job. Now there's a heated dispute on the playground of McAuliffe school between a group.

oh yes logan square is so safe look at all these gang disturbances and how is someone gonna call shots fired and there really no one shooting i think there are shooting just the cops are to lazy to make paper work

People aren't always right about shots being fired. Sometimes people call those in just to get CPD there faster. And I think that may have happened in this particular case. And, what paper work is there to do? There was no vitcim or witnesses. Just anonymous 911 callers. They can't do paper work just based on a 911 call of "Shots Fired". If that were true, we'd see cops doing paper work all the time.

People blast through the stop signs on Kostner all the time, even though there are many kids and others crossing. There is a lot of park and school traffic and lots of families in the neighborhood - folks need to SLOW down. I've had drivers hit me as I was crossing the street in a crosswalk (quickly). I have had a driver yell obscenities at me while I was crossing Kostner and George, because with with my toddler and baby stroller I was apparently not crossing fast enough for the driver, and he was forced to stop at the stop sign rather than roll on through. People who drive - please take care. How would you feel if it was your kid, or you wife, or your mom or grandma?

Hi and thanks for your work here, we really appreciate your work helping us to know what happens in our neighborhood. My daughter and I were at Ken-Well Park right before the "fun" started. Glad we got out when we did.

One comment on this: "4:24pm - An update just came in on the 4:01pm job, but the dispatcher's not "supposed to read it out". Gee, I wonder why. Probably because of my blog. Heh, oh well. Probably something I didn't want to know anyway."

This may already be obvious to you, so feel free to give me a big ol' "DUH" but I suspect that many gang members also have scanners-- indeed, I saw some evidence of that when I had a gang/drug infestation across the street from me-- luckily that group got taken out by the Feds.

Thanks again and keep up the good work.

Anonymous 8:50, I am hoping that the kid is indeed ok and that the car involved was caught. Yeah, people in that area need to slow down. They do drive fast. I agree 100% of everything you said.

Anonymous 11:32, I agree. They do go through the stop sign posts on Kostner. Yes, people do need to slow down because of what you've mentioned (school, families, etc.). As for that driver yelling profanity, that's just wrong. You mentioned that you have an infant, so that guy definately needs to slow down. What's this world coming to? I also agree with the rest of your comment.

A neighbor, I'm also glad that you and your daughter weren't in the park at the time of all of that. And you're correct that gangbangers do have scanners. So that could also be why they didn't say certaun stuff over the radio.

Everyone, thanks for the comments. I've noticed a lot more comments coming in in the past few days. It really means all of you care. And it's inspiring to see neighbors communiate with one another.
