Three gangbangers shot at Cicero and Wellington at 4:55 this morning. See Breaking News at the Trib page. Wonder if that was retaliation for the Nelson shooting.

That would be too far from this shooting. The one on Nelson happened right off of California, and Cicero/Wellington is at least 20 blocks to the west of there, so I doubt it.

"275 lbs, 6'1, heavy build"

No kidding. 6'1", 275 is, by definition, a "heavy build." Maybe even "fat." Is this the guy who couldn't fit into the squad a few weeks ago?

What does it mean when they ask for a "mission?"


AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Anonymous 4:01 #1, nope, different guy.

Anonymous 4:01 #2, when they ask for a mission, it means that ... I guess, that they'll be doing something related to that for a little while. I can't exactly describe it, but that's the closet I can get to describe it.

Caller is afraid to walk home, mainly because she has a baby.

Sounds more like SHE'S the baby.

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Anonymous 12:17, I'd be scared too of some unknown man following me and I had a toddler with me. You never know. He may have wanted to harm the baby or something. So, I wouldn't really judge this woman.
