Homicide @ Schubert And Albany On Tuesday

Sorry for the delayed post in regards to this incident, but there was a homicide on Tuesday at about 4am at the corner of Schubert and Albany, according to the Chicago Tribune. Sources say the shooting was gang-related, and was related to the homicide that occurred on the 3000 block of N California last week. 23 yr old Emigdio Ortega, of the 2600 block of N. Fairfield Avenue, was found dead by Chicago Police in an alley on the 2700 block of N Albany. Ortega, and another man (who is a known gang member in the area), were returning from the wake of Jesus Gamboa, the man who was killed in the California shooting, when another man came out from a gangway and opened fired on them. So then, Ortega and his friend ran separate ways so they wouldn't get shot, which obviously didn't work out. CPD responded to calls of "Shots Fired" in the area and found Ortega's unhurt friend by the Logan Square Blue Line Station. Ortega was found dead at about 5:30am and was pronounced dead at the scene. He had been shot in his shoulder and his right elbow.

The offender has a description, and it is as follows: male Hispanic, 20s, light complected, 5'8 or 5'9, 150 to 160 lbs, and last seen wearing a red cap and red jacket.

Residents of Beat 1411, I'm sorry that you've seen these two homicides within a week. It's truly horrible. I'm glad Alderman Moreno had called a community meeting for it on Wednesday, though. I'll be making a post on that later this afternoon.

Guns cause Crime, plain and simple.

We need to adapt San- Francisco's new policy. They have a no stand/lay down on public sidewalks. It is helping control the vagrant problem. I heard the new police leader is going 2 crack down on "quality of life" crime. This will help with the bigger crimes as well.

Alderman Moreno did a great job at our meeting on Wednesday. The problem residence in our area has been put on notice by the Alderman and 14th Police. There are just too many gang bangers that congregate at the residence there and it will be watched. Alderman Moreno won't stand for this gang bullshit. Especially after the two shootings. Both dead kids were MLD members. It was all gang related and tied to the same residence. It's obnoxious how bad these kids act. And most of these idiot gang bangers have children. A total waste of life. stay in school and get a career, make money and enjoy life. Running around the streets in a gang, peddling drugs, driving beat up cars and being completely broke is sad. There is no dignity in it.

Im guessing we should expect two retaliations for these homicides pretty soon. Be safe.

Anonymous 7:21, we the community care. We're tired of seeing violence like this on our streets. You can't even enjoy a day outside without this bullshit happening.

Anonymous 9:27, I guess I can agree to that.

americanlt, that policy does sound good, but it would violate the ACLU laws that say people have a right to stand on a public sidewalk.

Roadwolf, glad to hear that. I'm really glad to hear so many people from the area showed up to this meeting, and I'm glad Moreno and the police are doing something about Gamboa's residence. And I agree, all of it is stupid and a waste of life. Like you said, people need to stay in school and get a career so they can enjoy life.

Anonymous 4:23, probably. That's sad, too.
