Teen Loiters On Monticello

Good evening, everyone, it's 7:10pm. I had a good day. I traveled into the Lincoln Park neighborhood, just to escape here for a little while. I also turned in some old toys of mine into the Salvation Army on Fullerton. Anyway, it's going to be a clear night with tempatures only falling into the low 60s. I'll be monitoring closely for any activity. Are you all ready for tomorrow? I ask because I'm thinking we'll see a big uptick in violence because of the warm weather. Here's crime for tonight.

7:10pm - Suspicious person. 2707 N Monticello. Male White, shaved head, khaki pants in his late teens is loitering on the block, like he's waiting for something to happen. He was asked to leave once already but won't.

It must be summer. Sounds like single gunshots every few minutes but I can't tell what direction or how far. I'm around Sawyer and Milwaukee.

It seems like summer. But are you completey sure it's gunshots? I'm asking because I'm only about five blocks west of there, and I'm hearing lots of fireworks, especially to my east.

why are people blowing up fireworks so early in the year and its hard to tell when people are blowing up fireworks and shots being fired

It's that time of year. This is usually the time of the year when they start, late May. As the next week goes on, they'll be picking up. They go until at least the 2nd week of July.

Hell yeah it's hard to tell. A lot of times I actually do mistake them for gunshots and call the police.
