Good morning, everyone, it's 4:17am. Yep, I'm early. Don't ask why, LOL. But yeah, it's a clear very late night/early morning with temps in the upper 60s. Looks like we're in for a nice day with sunshine and temps in the mid or upper 80s. I'm monitoring 25 today and I plan on monitoring 14 tomorrow. FYI, I'm aware that the Taste of Chicago starts today, but since it's an event that runs more than a day, I'm going to wait to hear about major incidents that occur via the media before I monitor it. I really just want to monitor crime in our area. With that, here's crime for today.

From what I have, a biege SUV with a plate of X1721443 had a male in it who fired several shots on the street and then fled east past Pulaski. A female was driving. Another call said that someone on the street was shooting back at the SUV. A minute later, at 9:11, at Armitage and Keystone, three males, one a male Black with a white shirt, and two male Hispanics with blue and black shirts were walking towards Pulaski and they had guns.
