Teen Shot During Alleged Gang Conflict In North Center; Two Charged With Trespassing

A 17-year-old documented gang member is in serious but stable condition at Stroger Hospital after suffering a through-and-through gunshot wound to his lower right torso in North Center on Monday night.

Police believe a conflict broke out between two rival gangs in vehicles. The victim is a member of the Familia Stone street gang from the Sunnyside and Kedzie area, according to a police source.

Pioquinto-Bernabe (Chicago Police Dept)
A Chicago police tactical unit reported hearing 15 to 20 shots around 11:55PM near Wells Park, 2333 W. Sunnyside Avenue. Residents reported seeing shots fired as a black vehicle chased a white SUV along Cullom.

Officers soon found a white Infiniti SUV abandoned in a nearby alley. Shell casings were recovered in the 2300 block of W. Cullom and another set of casings was found in the 4200 block of N. Western Avenue.

Also recovered were a cell phone and a replica handgun, which is a notably unhelpful type of handgun to have when real handguns are present.

Two men have been charged with criminal trespass to land after allegedly being found under a porch in the 2200 block of W. Cullom.

Avila-Alvarado (Chicago Police Dept)
21-year-old Jose Damian Avila-Alvarado of Logan Square and 20-year-old Jose Juan Pioquinto-Bernabe of the Irving Park neighborhood are free on $1,500 I-Bonds, according to court records.

The white Infiniti that police recovered is registered to a man who lives at Pioquinto-Bernabe’s home address, a source said.

Several people were seen fleeing the area on foot and in vehicles, according to witnesses.

Police are reviewing video footage from local businesses as well as from Swedish Covenant Hospital, where the shooting victim was originally taken in a private vehicle.

  1. That's Lincoln Square, btw. But still a little too close to home.

    1. Irrelevant. I lived right near there and people debated whether I lived in Lincoln Square, North Center, E. Ravenswood and might as well call it W. Uptown or S.W. Andersonville now. Need to get over this.

      All my mail had a CHICAGO address on it.

    2. The headline is correct all the action took place south of Montrose which is in North Center. Lincoln Square is north of Montrose. If you are going to make corrections please check your facts first.

  2. Well I thought I'd give North Center/Lincoln Square a shot (no pun intended) before making my final decision to leave Chicago altogether. The gang banger giving me the stank eye while parking was my first clue (I had to tell him I was reading a no parking sign from my drivers seat and nobody was looking at him - never saw him again - stand your ground). Then the one killed in the alley right behind me. Thugs provoking trouble at 10pm at night while simply walking home from the grocery store. The cab driver recently murdered was right about where I usually found a parking spot at night. 15-20 shots reported here which isn't far from the poor murdered cab driver. The neighbors were nasty too, especially the single family homeowners, and there was even an article regarding that.

    I might have stayed if the rent was $200/month. No dice. Good luck Chicago, that's all I have to say.

  3. these guys have too many names: Jose Damian Avila-Alvarado and Jose Juan Pioquinto-Bernabe when they only need one, ESTUPIDO. In the case of the one with hair breasts growing out of his head, I'll add FEO (ugly).

    1. M. Pat Jones-Mileshevsky. Shareena Wilson-Kirkpatrick-Smith III. Karen Dempsey-Baker-Daly. Jose Juan Ricarlo Gonzales-Ariba......

      I worked at a major company in the Loop. These people would call up a) assuming you knew which name they decided to use when originally signing up for our services and b) don't know what their name is today.

      It's intentional in most cases. There outta be a law.

    2. FYI these are actually proper Hispanic names. Usually the last two names are hyphenated, the first being the dad's last name, and the second being the mother's maiden last name. Now, having said that, these POS thugs need to be sent up the river for a few years for their bad-doings. (Note how I hyphenated that, LOL.)

    3. And they'll switch up their first names or surnames when convenient too.

  4. $1500.00 I-Bond - which means they did not have to post any bond and were released on their own recognizance. I am sure they will show up on their court date with some new suits and ties. Anyone care to bet on it ??? ? ? ?

  5. Internal gang war from 17 and 20th districts. Spilled over into 019 as western is a highway inside the city and lawerence connects the factions of this gang. Hope no innocents get hit

  7. Obviously at least 1 real gun is still missing in this incident, people in that area better hope one of their kids doesn't find it.
