Good evening, everyone. There was a shooting at Belmont and Central Park a little after 5am this morning, according to Timothy Fitz over at Chicago News Report. According to Timothy's article on the shooting, a 23 yr old man in a car stopped at the light at that intersection, waiting to make a left turn onto Belmont from Central Park, was shot as gunshots went off at the intersection. It is unknown who was shooting, and who the intended target was. The victim was shot in the right arm and right leg. He was ok enough to drive himself to OLR Hospital (Addison and Central), so his injuries were probably not bad. No arrests were made.
Oh boy, the gunfire's starting in our community already. This is the second shooting in our two communities in the last week. There was one at McLean and Drake just a few days ago. I can only imagine what spring and summer will bring to our community. But hopefully my many efforts I have been and plan on doing, along with any efforts from you, the community, will prevent our community from being a total bloodbath.
