Hello, everyone. I know some of you were wondering why there were so many CPD sirens and squad cars in the western part of Avondale last night around 8:15pm, and I know why. About that time, a large brawl broke out on the 2900 block of N Hamlin with a large group involved. I have all the details below, so please read and let me know if you have any insight or information on this. If you just want to make a comment on it, a relevant one of course, that is fine, too.....
8:03pm - Burglar alarm. 29XX N Hamlin.
8:13pm - Beat car 2521 needs more cars at the 8:03pm job. There's a large crowd in front. They're all in front of 2947 on Hamlin, not the initial address that was called in, that's a few doors down.
