WHO'S LAUGHING NOW? Two Arrested For Pointing Gun At People In Lincoln Park Tuesday

UPDATE 2:21PM: Robbery charges have been filed against Raheem McCaskill, 21, and LeDonte Washington, 20, in connection with these incidents. Bail information is pending.

An investigation into possible connections with other crimes, including robberies, continues, according to a police source.

Two men are facing charges after allegedly pointing a gun from a vehicle toward two people in nearby Lincoln Park yesterday evening.

Police are now working to determine if the men are responsible for other crimes in our area, including two similar incidents last week in which victims reported having guns pointed at them from a white car.

One of last night's victims told police that the men drove up to him in a white sedan on a side street near Clark and Fullerton around 6:30PM. The passenger then pointed a gun in his direction and said something about wanting the victim’s shoes before the car drove away, the man said.

Moments before the man was threatened, another victim told officers from the neighboring 18th district that he had been threatened with a gun by two men in a white car in the same area.

Police soon located the car and its occupants at Kemper and Orchard, near the DePaul University campus.

Last Monday afternoon, a parking attendant reported that a gun had been pointed in his direction by a passenger in a white sedan near Diversey and Clark. Minutes later, a similar report came in from a man who was working near Cornelia and Broadway in Boystown.

The men who were arrested yesterday match the general descriptions given by last week’s victims.

  1. Good job police, can't wait to see those guys again after getting 12 months probation from some bleeding heart judge. The spread between federal and local sentencing for illegal gun possession is absurd.

    2. Lets hope they at least lose the car. Harder to drive around terrorizing people without a car.

  2. At least the criminals are moving south to Lincoln Park. Maybe Rahm will be more concerned now.

    1. Not as long as he has a full cadre of body guards and cops sitting on his house 24/7. Perks for being above us all.

    1. This has nothing to do with the Wild West, where even bad people had courage and skill. These people are cowardly morons.

  4. Any idea what was going on at Belmont and Sheffield around 11ish last night? 5-6 cop cars and at least one person getting arrested. Honestly I felt like I recognized one guy getting arrested from a previous post in this blog.

    1. Not aware of anything. May have been an arrest stemming from a street stop

  5. But Raheem and LeDonte were just turning their lives around.

    1. Remarkably, LeDonte has no record.

      The only other adult charge against Raheem, while certainly unsavory, was dropped.

  6. Raheem, from his Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts (Raheem16 and Raheem GotClout) seems like a high quality human being.
    What an asset.
    No doubt we'll be paying his room and board in the big house for the next several decades.

  7. Raheem also known as #SixteenDontShootEm is a known drill rapper rumored to have songs with other buzzing local artist Young Pappy and Tay 600. He is a savage in the flesh and needs to be caged. Sadly he actually has talent when it comes to rapping but anyone doing these heinous type of crimes needs to be jailed.
