OVERNIGHT MISCELLANY: Odds & Ends From A Busy Night

A silent alarm was triggered three, three, three times within a few minutes around 4:55AM at the 7-Eleven store on Broadway at Barry. After the third alarm was triggered, 911 started getting calls from citizens who reported seeing a man inside threatening the staff. Police response was delayed because the district was short on officers at the time.

Fire Bug
There were two reports of garbage fires being set in the area just before 5 o'clock this morning.

The first incident was reported at Belmont and Sheffield at 4:55AM. Then, at 4:58AM, an officer found a pile of boxes on fire nearby in the 3200 block of N. Seminary. No damage has been reported.

Mmm. No Thanks. I'm Just Looking.
A concerned citizen reported "six black, male, transgenders" soliciting at the corner of Clark and Roscoe.
