Gang Fight Breaking Out @ Dickens/Lawndale

Good morning, everyone, it's 8:30am. It's a mostly cloudy morning with temps in the mid 50s. The clouds are supposed to break during the day for sunshine, with temps getting up into the low to mid 60s. Still pretty warm for this time of year, but hey, I'm not complaining. Anyway, I'm monitoring 25 today, until 6:55pm. We'll see how that goes. Here's crime for this morning and afternoon.

shooting on keeler and cortland 1 critical condition.11am

There was a homicide at 10 am at Keeler & cortland and no mention of it here. Thought you were monitoring 025 today....this blog sucks!

Dr. Cliff Huxtabal said...

Timmy, we are suppose to have a very hot summer. Any word on whether or not they plan on closing our beaches due to "heat"?

Mary LaNett said...

There's far too many shootings. We need full bans on handguns and assault style weapons. The city is not a place where guns should be allowed. Those who hunt should keep their guns at their hunting lodge.

From the area said...

I'm no detective... far from it. But I'm willing to bet all those early morning calls lead up to the homicide on Keeler & Cortland. They are all in the same area.
I also disagree with Tim McGibbons. I think you should make a blog and lets see how well yo do?! Great blog!

The uneducated and illiterate hispaniola latino gang banger must be stopped. How can these uneducated and illiterate teenage and 20 somethings children find a career and stop themselves from being on food stamps and driving $500 cars for the rest of their lives? Or do we just send them overseas to get whipped and beat by terrorists?

Jim Bridger said...

How about deporting the illegals here in this country? They're a drain on the system. In Chicago their kids are allowed to go to our schools, use our hospitals all on our tax dollars. As for the public aid system. Why allow those who never worked collect $$$ from the system. I've worked and paid money into the Social security system, yet when my turn comes to collect, the money will be gone.

With the warmer weather I've noticed a lot of those loud car stereos booming. I wish CPD would impound their $500 cars for this noise violation.

Anonymous 12:30, yep, I'm fully aware of that shooting/homicide. It happened right around 10am.

Tim, Cortland and Keeler isn't in my coverage area. That's on 2534's Beat. In 25, on this blog, I only cover Beats 2523, 2524, 2525 and the north half of 2535. So please read my profile and read around on this blog before you say it sucks, because you would have clearly seen I do not cover 2534 here. I actually have another blog that covers all of Chicago (pretty much) and I'll have some information up about that homicide by this weekend.

Cliff, I haven't heard anything about beach closings. I'm not all too concerned about those anyway because I don't cover any beach areas on this blog. But I did hear it is supposed to be a very hot summer.

From the area, I can agree with that. It was an unusually active morning and I felt like something was going to jump off at any time. And then obviously the Cortland/Keeler incident occurred.

Peter, me too.
