Good morning, everyone, it's 8am. It is the first day of Spring, which means a lot of things. The reminder of the cold weather (the 30s and lower 40s) should definitely be making an exit in the next couple of weeks, as well as the threat of snow for the most part, and warm up into the 60s, 70s and even lower to mid 80s. I don't think we'll see that big of a warm up in the reminder of this month, but as we get into April, we should. Hopefully, that is. Anyway, I have currently two community meetings to attend this week. One would be the Avondale Neighborhood Association which is tomorrow evening at 7pm, at St. Hyacinth's Church in Resurrection Hall. Then, my CAPS Beat meeting, 2523, is on Wednesday. That's at the Copernicus Center on Milwaukee, at 6:30pm. So with that, here's crime for today.
9:00am - An all call message is broadcasted on Zones 3 and 12. Two men, both members of the Maniac Latin Disciples gang, robbed and attempted to shoot an off-duty Chicago Police Officer in front of 3820 W North Ave. At 05:45 hours (5:45am), the Officer was driving home from work at this location when two males came to the Officer's car. One repeatedly pulled out a gun at him and the other tried to ram the Officer off the road with his car. Fortunately, the offenders were arrested, and it is presumed that the Officer is ok. Also, Operation "Just Cause" has been implemented to target members of the Maniac Latin Disciples gang.
