Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:14pm. It's still hot out, and it looks like activity is picking up. Anyone heard about the riot or riots on Lakeshore Drive last night? What a shame. There's been activity in our neighborhood, too. There was a shooting in the 3600 block of W Schubert shortly before 10pm last night. I'll have an article about it up by 5:15. Anyway, for those of you interested, two things: 1) Tomorrow night is the CAPS meeting for Beat 2523. It's at 3160 N Milwaukee, the Copericus Center, at 7pm, and 2) our next Milwaukee Ave. clean up is June 5th from 10am-noon. Here is crime for this afternoon.
3:47pm - Battery in progress. Diversey and Lawndale. Two males, one in a black tanktop, jumping on one. A white car is somehow involved.
4:03pm - Theft. 2338 N Lawndale. A man stole a blue bike from the scene.
4:13pm - Traffic accident. 2900 block of N Hamlin. Kid hit by a car.
4:22pm - Person w/ a gun. Diversey and Avers. Over a dozen males on the corner and the one in a white t-shirt, blue jeans with a white doo-rag has a gun on him.
4:25pm - A slow down is being given on the 4:22pm job.
4:46pm - There's more to the story on the 4:22pm job. There's a pissed off 911 caller now because supposedly, the group was also fighting, and the police just drove past. The guys hid.
4:51pm - I'm going to listen to some music while I do the article on last night's shooting.
5:20pm - Unfortunaley, my computer decided to get sick and shut down on me. I finished the actual shooting article, but the shut down pervented me from adding my finishing touches to it. I'll have to do that a little later.
5:28pm - Burglar report. 2827 N Springfield.
5:51pm - Beat 2541 is doing special attention per 2599, the Watch Commander, on the 2600 block of N Lawndale.
6:04pm - I'm going to add those finishing touches now. I'll be back in about 10 minutes.
6:14pm - I'm back.
6:54pm - 2541 is doing a premise check at Monroe school, and is dispersing ten teens from the school grounds. I'm guess they have 2541 over there because of last night's shooting.
7:39pm - Battery in progress. Ken-Well Park. 10 people fighting.
7:42pm - A slow down is given on the 7:39pm job.
