Gang Disturbance On Altgeld Wednesday Night, Lack Of Posts Lately

Hello, everyone. I just wanted to let you all know about a gang disturbance that occurred last night at 8:46pm and also give a brief explanation why I haven't been posting lately.

At the said time, a gang disturbance was reported on the 3900 block of W. Altgeld, with several male gang members allegedly entering a resident's apartment and threatening them. I'm not sure what happened with CPD arrived, however, but I thought all of you should be aware of this. Be aware of this instance and remember to call 911 if you witness anything suspicious or not right in your neighborhood.

Now I will get to why I haven't been posting lately.  On Tuesday, I did listen in for about 20 minutes from 2:55pm to 3:15pm, and heard a "check the well being" call on the 2900 block of N Ridgeway at about 2:58), but that was the only call I heard in that time period. Then I stopped listening after a little bit, because I felt depressed (and still do a bit, but I'm going to be okay) about some situations going on in my life. Yesterday, the depression played a role into me not blogging, but I also had homework to do and then I went to 2523's CAPS Beat meeting. As for today, I've been in class and still have a lot of homework to do. Monday was the same thing as far as the depression. Also, to note, but there has not been much going on at all due to the frigid weather we've been having.

I hope all of you can accept my apologies for not blogging the last couple of days. I really am sorry and I hope all of you can accept my apology. I'm going to try my hardest to begin blogging regularly again, but just so everyone is forewarned, gaps in my blogging (and a few might be longer than this) might occur on a regular basis until May. Be prepared for a long gap in the middle of March, as I have mid-terms in school, and at the end of April/beginning of May, for finals. I signed up for four classes this semester, thus making me a full-time student, and it's had me really busy.

I hope everyone is well and I'll be blogging tomorrow, at least, and Saturday. Have a great day, everyone!

911 Calls/Radio Activity From Kelvyn Park Incident Yesterday

Good morning, everyone. I now come to all of you, presenting the 911 calls and radio activity that took place on Zone 12, home to the 25th District, Thursday morning, January 10th, 2013, from the two incidents that took place at Diversey and Hamlin and at Kelvyn Park High School, 4343 W. Wrightwood, respectively. I started listening to the 911 tapes at 07:23 (7:23am) hours and listened through 10:30am. I listened to all of the activity that occurred. It should be noted that two, not one, bona fided incidents took place Thursday morning. Both were shots fired with a couple of 911 calls on each, and then led to a high speed chase throughout Logan Square into the Lakview community when State Police discovered the vehicle involved in the two shootings. I hope all of you find this post to be informative and that it gives you all of the details you want/need to know about this incident. Please do not hesitate to comment or email me with any questions, thoughts or opinions you might have (but do be forewarned, I will be highly moderating the comments for this post).

Major Police Chase / Roll-Over Started At Kelvyn Park High School - GANG RELATED

Avondale Logan Square Crime Blog Exclusive
Chicago, IL

Earlier today, this blog brought you news of what was said to be a shooting at Chicago's Kelvyn Park High School. New details are emerging in this story. Chicago Tribune article here.

According to several sources at the Chicago Police Department and inside Kelvyn Park High School, all of whom asked to remain anonymous because they were not authorized to speak to the media:

"At 7:30AM this morning, three individuals in a silver jeep were in the parking lot of Kelvyn Park High School sort of trying to hide with a plan to shoot a victim that they knew would be walking by. The offenders fired their weapon into a house across the street while aiming for their intended victim."

An employee of Kelvyn Park High School said the jeep was able to gain access to the school parking lot because it (the parking lot) is never locked, but there are now plans to keep the parking lot locked up outside of school hours. 

All of the sources speaking on condition of anonymity involved at Kelvyn Park High School and CPD confirm the following details from the Chicago Tribune:

"About 8 a.m., a woman looked out her front window on Altgeld and saw two man hear a van, with a Jeep parked nearby. She turned away from the window and then heard a crash and felt something hit the back of her neck, police said.

The window had been shot out, and the woman injured by flying glass, with a bullet coming to rest inside the apartment. The Jeep, apparently with the two men inside, fled, and when officers arrived, they found that the van had been broken into, although it’s not immediately clear if anything was stolen.

Officers from the Grand Central District heard a description of the Jeep over their police radio, and saw the vehicle speeding away, police said. They pursued, but called off the chase because of the speed of the Jeep. Illinois State Police spotted the Jeep soon after, but also called off the chase, and Shakespeare District officers did the same.

Finally, after the Jeep struck vehicles in traffic in the 1900 block of West Diversey Avenue and the 1000 block of West School Street, officers from the Mass Transit Unit spotted it again near Lincoln Avenue and School Street, Mirabelli said. Soon after, about 9:22 a.m., the Jeep apparently hit a curb near School and Paulina Avenue, flipped over and stopped. The three people in the Jeep tried to flee, but only one got away, police said."

One officer said that there was a foot chase by a 19th district unit involving a possible match to the suspect still being sought, but a police supervisor in 019 gave an order to terminate the chase before the unit could even say what the emergency was.

Every source spoken to is confirming that the incident was gang related, but not related to anyone who attends Kelvyn Park High School. Several police units were observed patrolling the area quite aggressively.

The final moments for the two suspects who were under arrest while being treated at Illinois Masonic Hospital, came AFTER the chase had been terminated by both the Illinois State Police and Chicago Police Department. After the chase ended, Chicago Police zone 2 radio started receiving calls about a "traffic accident with a roll-over" that seemed to match the description of the jeep they had recently been chasing. Upon arrival, officers determined that the vehicle involved in the roll - over was indeed the same jeep they were chasing.

Chicago Police are confident that the last suspect will be apprehended.  

Kelvyn Park High School - Shooting In Parking Lot

An anonymous parent at Kelvyn Park High School is reporting that Asst. Principal Holly Dacres has confirmed that a shooting has taken place in the parking lot of Kelvyn Park High School today, and that no students have been injured or killed. The parent is also reporting the following: According to Dacres, "All of my school security and other staff are on point" and "we have a climate team coming in". Dacres is reported to have said that a meeting between Chicago Police and Kelvyn Park High School administration will take place later today.

There is currently no information as to whether or not Chicago Police have anyone in custody, nor is there any information about the person shot. Further details say that Dacres made this statement: "The shooting was NOT related to the school".
The anonymous parent reporting on this incident says that the school did not make any parental notifications even to say that there had been an incident involving a firearm on school property and that the students were safe, nor did the school even do so much as to tell parents that an investigation is ongoing, or if the school would keep parents updated as to any other details.

Says the anonymous parent: "Apparently, the school was not locked down, and I am looking into CPS system-wide policies on this, as well as Kelvyn Park High School operations policies. I find it easy to believe that this could have been worse, and easy to believe that if someone would have been able to enter the school to do whatever might have been done in that parking lot today, the school would not have notified the parents."

Kelvyn Park High School has a history of security and safety problems that can be verified by a combination of media reports and records that are publicly available, which include union grievances filed by teachers; and records of responses along with general offense case reports kept by the Chicago Police Department.

If anyone has the Radio Reference archives of 025 from today, and cares to share it with this blog, we would greatly appreciate it!
