Traffic Stop On Avers

Good evening, everyone, it's 6:37pm. What a day. I've been out for at least 5 hours. This morning, I went out to the community garden at Milwaukee and Monticello for a few hours to help garden, but not without stopping at McDonalds first for some breakfast, and after gardening, getting a haircut. So yep, I've been out. And it's beautiful out. Most of today was in the 50s and 60s with sunshine. Right now, it's in the lower 70s with clouds. Anyway, I'm going to monitor 25 from now until 10:45pm, then I'm switching over to 17 until midnight. So, with that, here's crime for this evening.

7:06pm - Beat car 2524 has a traffic stop at 2810 N Avers.

7:07pm - Disturbance. 3741 W Shakespeare. Three men standing outside, loitering. They may be gang members.

7:45pm - Gang disturbance. Fullerton and Kostner. Several of them flashing gang signs.

7:46pm - The 7:45pm job is now coming in as a "battery in progress". A female was hit in the face and is bleeding.

7:53pm - Check the well being. Diversey and Lawndale. Possible intoxicated caller said something about males in the alley.

7:59pm - 1) Criminal trespass. 2447 N Ridgeway. Three males in the vacant apartment. 2) Gang disturbance. 36X0 W Diversey. Six to eight males in black and yellow flashing gang signs.

8:18pm - DUI driver. Belmont and Hamlin. Black Honda Accord with a plate of L219057 is speeding towards Ridgeway with a drunk driver in it. He ran several lights.

8:20pm - Beat car 2525 is asking for a call back at 2447 Ridgeway.

9:13pm - Battery in progress. Diversey and Lawndale. Seven males beating on one in the alley. This intersection call also just had a gang disturbance call with males on the corner flashing.

9:28pm - Wires down. 4104 W Wellington.

9:46pm - This is just for information only, but there was a shooting on Beat 1731 last night. It happened around 1:35am at 3459 N Milwaukee Ave. Gunshots were fired outside of the location, then the victim was found, shot in the stomach. He was very uncooperative and didn't give any information.

10:17pm - Gang disturbance. 3700 block of W Shakespeare.

10:19pm - 1) Gang disturbance. 2000 block of N Avers. They're in Mozart Park and at the corner of Dickens and Avers. 2) Gang disturbance. Diversey and Kildare. Gang meeting going on in the alley.

10:35pm - Battery in progress. 4400 block of W Diversey. Calls coming in at Kostner and Kilbourn for a large fight, possibly gang-related. Multiple, multiple calls on it. Calls are coming in for near the Burger King as well.

10:37pm - Beat car 2525Robert is giving a slow down on this big fight. They're scattering.

10:45pm - Now monitoring 17...

Instead of a gang shooting, when are we going to get a police shooting? I would love to see one of these assholes get smoked by CPD.

What time did you call, anonymous 9:48, and which block of Hamlin was it?

Anonymous 9:52, I can't say I disagree.

I wish you were still monitoring 25 right now. I think there was a gun shot a few minutes ago, and now there's a fire truck and ambulance in the street. I called on 3741 earlier tonight, but I think the issue was actually a few houses east.

Anonymous 9:48/10:26, hmmm ... seems interesting. I believe I didn't hear any calls on Hamlin at that time, but I'll have ProdigalOne double check for me.

LE, this is on Shakespeare, correct? And what did you call in 3741 as in earlier? A regular disturbance or a gang disturbance?

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Also, LE, what time was this possible gunshot fired?

drive by in the middle of the day 1:15 on Milwaukee and California. Many people out four shots no one hurt. The bangers on that live on point just south of dickens that hang out of their porch all day were the target. They did not cooperate with the police. Tan minivan with door open pulled around the coner and started shotting. I know you post this but when is the next caps meeting for 14? Thanks.

LE said...

The gunshot was at 10:45. When I looked out the window, the ambulance and fire truck appeared to be two doors east of 3741, so I'm not sure if it was related to my earlier call.

I called on 3741 because 3 guys were standing outside, then later went into the basement. The house has been empty for a few weeks. The police didn't find anything when they stopped by, but later there was a party going on in the basement (they even came out with their 40s to see about the 10:45 fuss). Today, there are gang signs sprayed on all the first floor windows.

Gun shots? Naw, its usually fireworks.

To the citizen inquiring about a call made on Hamlin around 8:30pm last night - My friend ProdigalOne looked into the archives and did not hear any calls on Hamlin. So it was probably never even sent to the dispatcher. That, or one of the Sergeants had Dispatch code out the call over the PDT.

Anonymous 1:24, wow. Thank you for that information. As for the next CAPS meeting, if you're talking about the area California, Point, Dickens, etc., that is Beat 1431 and that meeting is on May 19th at the 14th District station starting at 6:30pm.

LE, I just e-mailed my co-author to this blog, ProdigalOne, and have asked her if she could look into the archives of 25 for that time period to see if she can come up with any calls from your block in relations to a shooting or gunshots. I will most likely hear back from her by this evening. As for 3741 W. Shakespeare, I would definitely say that is a problem building, and I ask you to please consider going to your CAPS meeting (you're on Beat 2525), which will be held on Tuesday, May 17th, at Mozart Park starting at 6:30pm. And, also, I may be in attendance for this meeting to meet any fans on this Beat and to take notes, so if I do come and you would like to tell me about the problem in person also, that would be fine.

Does anyone know what happened on Drake and Medill Sat night before 1am? We came home to a police road closure and gossip of 2-5 people shot.

I can't find any info but maybe I am reading this wrong.....was there a drive by shooting at the intersection of California and Fullerton yesterday?
