A FirstAlso Monday, we came across the first known 911 call giving the address of our new LGBT-friendly senior housing project at Halsted and Addison. A man called 911 from 3600 N. Halsted to report that a known offender had just struck him and was “probably somewhere in the area.”
The call was dispatched to police at 6:29PM, although the dispatcher admitted that the call was "really old" because it had to sit around while short-handed officers handled more pressing matters.
