Good morning, everyone, it's 11:21am. What a stormy morning we had this morning. Lots of lighting, but a TON of rain. We had about four to seven inches to fall on Chicago. But now it's cloudy, and the sun will probably come out at some point. It's going to be in the mid to upper 80s. Anyway, today, I'm monitoring 17 for all of the residents North of Belmont. I will be paying special attention to the 3200 block of N Albany, that has been experiencing lots of gang problems lately, and they are escalating. Hopefully nothing happens over there this evening. So with that, here's crime for today.
