Shooting Near Koz Park On Diversey Overnight

Another shooting in the neighborhood. As usual, it happened on the west end of the area. This one was reported on the 3800 block of W. Diversey, according to Chicago Breaking News. It occurred at about 12:15am this morning, with two men shot on a porch. Reports indicate that a grey Honda was involved. The car pulled up and someone inside fired shots, then fled east on Diversey. One victim is 30 yrs old, shot in the right knee. The other victim is 20 yrs old, shot in the right torso. Both were taken to Illinois Masonic for treatment.

Anyone hear this? I heard nothing, for once. We had our air conditioner cranked up full force, plus I was watching TV while trying to fall asleep. But I did hear an ambulance go by. I thought nothing of it, to admit. I figured they were just going for a sick person or something. But anyway, this shooting sounds gang related. I mean, a porch and a car were involved. I'm excepting gang fights or maybe more gunfire by Koz Park now, in the next couple of days. Those of you that live in the area, be careful. Just because it's been quiet over here for the most part, doesn't mean it's over. It's far from over, in fact.

That's kind of crazy. I was in the ER at Masonic last night being treated for a leg injury when these guys were brought in. The doctors were referring to them as "gun shot leg" and "gun shot chest" and I heard them talking about how they were sitting on a porch when it happened.

Small world we live in, JCON. Wow! I bet you weren't excepting to run into two shooting victims from the neighborhood while getting treated for your own injury.

Hope you're doing ok and I hope your leg feels better soon.

Haha, Illinois Masonic is so quiet and laid back. You'd all most never expect that kind of thing there. Thanks for the good wishes. I was hit from behind on my bike on my way home. Hit and run. I have a huge bruise and will have to be off my feet for awhile but otherwise ok. Also, just wanted to say that I'm a huge fan of what you are doing here, I try to read it every day.

You're right, Masonic is very quiet and laid back. I was there Saturday afternoon to get checked out for my pains involving my one of my teeth and my stomach, and the room honestly just has a nice and easy feeling to it.

Sorry to hear about your foot, but I'm glad it wasn't anything too major.
