Homicide On Springfield Overnight

Well, whadya know? Logan Square has officially had it's first Homicide of the year, of 2010. A man was shot in the lower chest around 12:45am this morning in the 2100 block of N. Springfield, according to this Chicago Breaking News article. He was taken to Illinois Masonic, where he was pronounced dead. Also, a woman was shot in this incident. She suffered a graze wound to an unknown part of the body. Her condition is not known at this time.

It is confirmed. First homicide of the year in Logan Square. Well, people, what are we going to do about this? Besides gripe, that is. Every CAPS meeting I go to lately is nothing but this, and my patience with it is getting VERY short. It's only a matter of time that I snap at a meeting because of it. I'm sick and tired of it. People, the police can't do this on their own. We need to help them. We have the information, so why not tell them? What we need to do is work together to find solutions, not just complain. Otherwise, if you just want to complain, then you are NOT a part of the solution. If anything, you're part of the problem. So, what I suggest to KEEP COMING TO CAPS MEETINGS, not just come once. Seriously. In the meantime, I'll be here, keeping you informed, which most of our elected officials won't do.

Hey Enio,
I have no information whether the homicide was gang related or not, but since Mozart Park is literally right there, I think it may be.
