NOT FIREWORKS: Shell Casings Found Outside Alderman's Condo Building

Ho-hum.

A passer-by flagged down police Sunday evening to point out four spent shell casings lying outside of Alderman Tom Tunney's condo building.

Officers recovered the casings at 5:15PM yesterday and recorded the incident as a reckless discharge of a firearm in the 300 block of West Diversey.

Meanwhile, just west of us, a car had a window shot out in the 1800 block of Barry early Saturday. No one was injured.

  1. The Stanley Cup, reportedly, will be on a float in this Sunday's parade. I bet it has more security than the folks in the crowd.

  2. So, Cops will come out for shell casings (no reports of shots fired), but won't come out when that poor lady's business was a victim of a mass shoplifting a few weeks ago? She made many calls and was told it was not an ongoing crime...call 311. Strange, inconsistent and confusing.

    1. The story states that the officer was flagged down while on patrol.

    1. Was the casing on Kenmore recovered on the street in front of that home? Do you have anymore information about that incident?
