DODGING A BULLET: Lincoln Park, Boystown Victims Report Being Threatened With Gun From Car


Chicago police are investigating after two victims—one in Lincoln Park and one in Boystown—reported being threatened by man who pointed a gun at them from a vehicle Monday afternoon. No shots are known to have been fired and no one was injured.

The first report came from a parking attendant who was working near Diversey and Clark at 1:50PM. He told officers that a white Dodge Stratus pulled up and the back-seat passenger brandished a gun.

The car then drove off eastbound on Diversey.

Five minutes later, a man who was working outside at Broadway and Cornelia called 911 to report that the back seat passenger of a white Dodge Intrepid had pointed a gun at him as the vehicle circled the area. The victim described the gun as an assault rifle.

Dodge’s Intrepid and Stratus models are similar in appearance.

The Lincoln Park victim reported that the vehicle was occupied by three black men while the Boystown victim saw two black men in the car—one in the back seat plus the driver.

  1. Seriously Tunney when are you going to wake up and instead of worrying about how many cinnamon rolls you will sell, worry about the crime in the neighborhood that you sell the cinnamon rolls in.

    1. When one does not have a conscience sleeping is not a problem.

  4. I've noticed a lot of graffiti in Lincoln Park lately. A few have had crowns whatever that means. Maybe rent will be cheaper next year.

    1. Crown = Latin Kings
      Thank goodness, as our two stellar aldermen have implied on multiple occasions, we don't have a gang problem.

    1. I never would have dreamed it was like that, especially those neighborhoods on the lakefront. Purse snatching, car broken into here and there in a big city I could accept, but....
