WILD: North Side Rapper Shot In Wrigleyville Gunfight; Cops Find 3 Handguns, Dozens Of Shots Fired


UPDATE 9:01AM: Police have now recovered a third handgun at the scene. It was lying between two homes in the 1100 block of Patterson.
-------
One man was shot as dozens of rounds were fired during a wild gunfight less than a block from Wrigley Field early Sunday. One shot was fired by police who were already on-scene handling a report of a large group making noise on the street. Two firearms were recovered. Three firearms have been recovered.

Police chased several people who fled the shooting on foot. One individual was caught and is in custody for questioning.

The shots rang out at 3:07AM near the intersection of Racine and Patterson in Wrigleyville. A witness told CWB that some individuals involved had been attending a party.

A 26-year-old aspiring North Side rapper was shot in the left shoulder during the incident, according to a police source. The man's brother drove him to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston where the victim's condition was stabilized. He remains there under police guard. Investigators have yet to determine who shot the man.

CWB Chicago is withholding the man's name as he is not currently charged with a crime.

Two cars fled the scene and one of the vehicles—a stolen 2006 Dodge Charger—lost its license plate as it crashed into parked cars.

In an incredible stroke of luck, the Charger was located around 5 o’clock this morning in the 1400 block of W. Montrose by an officer who stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts on his way to work the security detail at Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s home in Lakeview.

The car, with heavy front-end damage and a missing plate, was sitting right out front. No one was in the vehicle, but a witness reported that five “teens” left it there.

Back at the shooting scene, police tape and evidence markers stretched the length of a city block as officers put together a description of one gunman: a skinny black male who stands about 5’7” tall wearing blue jeans and a black hoodie.

19th district supervisors have ordered officers to conduct a “post-shooting mission” in the area west of Wrigley Field and in Uptown today.

  1. It was only a matter of time. It's probably just the beginning. A handful of new cops isn't going to help.

  2. Forget about any "new" police. Tunney and the Commander have a security company we can hire.

    1. Is this for real? Is Tunney really in the security business? The conflicts are really just amazing in this corrupt city.

    2. The primary security company that is hired in the local "entertainment districts" is operated by a 19th district CAPS officer.

    3. Apparently that would be Walsh Security, who does security for Center on Halsted, go here:

    4. And this is not a conflict of interest in any way?? Wow. #smh Chicago never ceases to amaze me. An alderman in bed with a policeman and it's a for-profit scenario, right?

    5. What's the conflict of interest? Would you rather hire mall security in an area where violent crimes are becoming increasingly prevelant over a cop who knows the area? Geniuses I tell ya.

    6. Walsh security did a very good job whenever we hired them for events. We will hire them again when we want the job done right.

  3. Aspiring rapper LOL. That is code for loser gang banger about to kill or be killed. Is this a relative of the other aspiring rappers shot in uptown earlier this year?

    1. He's got street cred now , being "popped " in the should should get him an album deal

    2. No he isn't a loser gang banger, he is actually a working man, a father,an actor on "Empire" and also keeps himself busy with music when he gets the time from work and family. ASPIRING RAPPER IS NOT CODE WORD FOR SHIT YOU BIGOT.

    3. We don't use "code." The vast majority of shootings on Chicago's North Side are the result of conflicts between gang splinter groups that are often sparked by music videos posted online.

  4. Why is it always "teens" and "aspiring rappers"?

  5. I wish more people would avoid to area and stop patronizing the bars and stores. Hit the area in the wallet, probably the only thing that will lead to changes.

    1. I say it every year, vote Wrigleyville dry, one precinct at a time.

    3. Except they were at a house party so avoiding bars and stores won't work. I wish people would stop blaming everyone else and take responsibility for their own kids. If you raise your kids right, maybe, just maybe, these teens and gang bangers will stop shooting up our streets. If you are a positive influence in their lives maybe they won't go looking for acceptance elsewhere.

  6. And for you out of towners, note this is just three blocks from the area police station. They should do outdoor roll call in the McDonald's parking lot and then walk up and down Clark as a start.

    1. With what man power? Tell you what, put on your uniform and call that outdoor roll call then order those officers to walk up and down Clark, ignoring the rest of the district

  7. Tunney would pee his pants for another outdoor roll call. Just another dog and pony show and a great photo opportunity for the anointed . .ops . . elected.

  8. What lyrics is this "aspiring rapper" known for? No one knows, or cares. This 26 year old gang banging degenerate should stop bringing trouble to our neighborhood. Three weapons no charges, wtf is going on? These off duty cops should be on duty, not contracting their bs services to local McDonald's.

  9. I am surprised they are even investigating this. Or that they claim they are. I remember about six months ago when a guy was shot in broad daylight on Devon outside the yoga studio and the cop said "oh, it's just gangs doing what they do"

    And that was the end of that.

  10. Those guys was from DayDayWorld, L4M, and GetRich they renegades some guy just made a youtube video bout them

  11. "In an incredible stroke of luck, the Charger was located around 5 o’clock this morning in the 1400 block of W. Montrose by an officer who stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts on his way to work..."

    So, the most substantive progress in the case was made by a cop who basically stumbled on it while making a donut run. Hilarious.

    1. You discount the courage and importance of the officers who pursued possible violent offenders on foot at night and succeed in taking one into custody?

      Delete
    2. and what does the the contributor who finds things "hilarious" do for the betterment of the community and society at large? do you run away from gunfire, for instance, to save yourself? or, perhaps, do you run towards it, knowing that in risking your own life you might save others? the former? thought so. keep up the good work, officers, and thank you.

    1. Just click the "trending on Facebook" button and the brother posts about his brother getting shot

    2. "Yes."
      That made me laugh. A certain direct-subtlety there.

  13. What's hilarious are all the TV interviews of "residents" saying "this doesn't happen in this neighborhood." Really? Read CWB more often! Ostriches!

  14. Not that I trust dna info, but reporting one in custody and 86 shots? What say ye, CWB? 'cause I trust you more than any other news source out there.

    Wait, see one in custody above. Disregard that portion, but the shots? That's a shit ton, if true.
