Gang Disturbance On Altgeld, Shots Fired @ Dickens/Hamlin

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:33pm. It's a warm and sunny afternoon, with temps in the lower 80s. Let's see what that brings us for this afternoon and evening. Today, I'm monitoring 25 from now until 5:10pm, then again from 10 to 10:45. This weekend, I will not be blogging on this blog, but will be blogging on my other blog, for the NATO summit and related activities Downtown. Look to your left and click on "Timmy's Chicago Crime Blotter" in order to read the latest going on at NATO this weekend. Just so you all know, we will have the same amount of cops in our neighborhoods, but there will only be two shifts of them. They're working 12-hour shifts for a couple of days. On that note, here's crime.

4:26pm - Gang disturbance. 44XX W Altgeld. Group near the corner, throwing up gang signs.

5:10pm - I'm going to go until . I'll be back later.

10:00pm - I'm back until 10:45.

10:03pm - Shots Fired. Dickens and Hamlin. Seven gunshots heard.

10:04pm - Person w/ a gun. Lawndale and McLean. Male walking towards Dickens with a gun in his hand.

10:35pm - Battery. 30XX N Davlin.

10:45pm - I'm going to go for the night. I'll be back on Monday. Have a great weekend, everyone!

The police manpower is down in the district. Rise up and do what you you want to do these next few days. Have street parties, Play baseball in the midle of any street. The police can't stop you.

I'd believe this if I wasn't seeing cops EVERYWHERE.

Also, even if there were no cops... street baseball's the best thing you can think to do? Thats just boring.

There were gunshots at 2 a.m. This morning (May20) on West Francisco Place and lots of police. Anyone know what happened?

Wow, I was downtown for the protests against NATO. The police had no control of the crowd what-so-ever. We were very peaceful, unlike the cops who tunted us with slurs.

It was on West Francis Place. One of the Spanish Lords that lives at 2765 West Francis was shot. Too bad they did not have better aim. Everyone wants them gone and two shootings in three months might help. Francisco runs North-South.

@Mary - I was also downtown and the cops did a great job with the crowds, very respectful. Maybe you weren't actually in Chicago?

@ Anonymous 11AM - you should call the police at the first sign of trouble, also get to know your neighbors and go to CAPS meetings regularly. This will make a huge difference.

The prostitutes are back "walking their beat" with the warm weather. I don't think the police care about this activity on Armitage. I'm going to start filming this activity again.

Please put those videos on youtube.

Toxic, that wasn't true at all. Police manpower remained the same.

Anonymous 11am, do you have any more information on that shooting? I'd like to make a post on it, just so folks are aware that's what happened over there.

Anonymous 4:58, I agree. Mary just doesn't like the CPD is all.

Agreed, anonymous 5:02.

americanlt, I thought you lived in Uptown? But yeah, do film it, if that's what you believe you should do.
