BROAD DAYLIGHT: Man "Critical To Grave" After Being Shot At 4200 Broadway This Morning

A 22-year-old man is undergoing surgery at Illinois Masonic Medical Center after being shot on the street near 4200 N. Broadway at 10:20 this morning.  He is listed in critical- to grave condition.

Police were not able to positively identify the victim, but an officer said they are "90% sure" that he is a known gang member.

Two men are in custody for questioning.

An officer who was on the scene reported seeing shell casings "all up and down Buena [Avenue]." A Toyota Prius that was parked near the scene was "Swiss cheesed," according to a witness.

Investigators believe that images of the offenders were captured on a Chicago police pod camera. A covert Chicago police vehicle in the area also saw the suspected offenders running from the scene, a source said.

Witnesses reported seeing two possible shooters running eastbound on Buena from Broadway after shots were fired. The men were initially described as two black men, 5'5" to 5'8" tall and weighing 140- to 160-pounds. One wore a multi-color red jacket and the other wore a dark jacket.

  2. Broadway Youth Center is moving a block from this location. Gonna be a happening for sure. Considering the nightly thug gang member count nearby at 3900 Rec Center LSD...my guess things may not mix well.

    Certainly nobody doing shit about the number one problem in the area.
    Thanks for turning a blind eye and playing dumb as a great neighborhood continues its slide. Putz!

  4. Thursday's Caps Meeting will be held near there. Focus is "general thefts". Maybe they need to focus on general mayhem and how our once safe neighborhood has been generalized to the degree all this crime is just another meaningless statistic blended in to make us still look safer than the South or West sides.

  5. Chicago's biggest Taxpayers are fleeing the city. Increased crime is a main reason. Tunney are you listening? ...I am sure the answer is no.

    Tunney's approach to crime and goal of putting half-way houses all over his (I mean our) ward is chasing away the people who pay for his social programs >> http://www.huffingtonpost.com/reboot-illinois/report-chicago-is-losing_b_9618534.html

    1. I'm gay and ain't paying for all that garbage like the COH. Left last year. Really, we need to form a new fangled coalition on how not to be duped.

    2. Not that it makes a huge difference, but this shooting was in Cappleman's ward.
      THAT schmuck has been completely silent on the issue of police / crime. Nothing. At least Tunney showed up at a few meetings and mumbled a few things.

  6. When the crime downtown by Water Tower started about 5 years ago I thought the rich would start moving out. When you spend 2 - 5 million $s or more for a condo by Water Tower, you expect to feel safe walking to and from work, dinner, running, etc. and if you don't you can afford to move somewhere safe such at Wilmette, Wheaton, New York, Seattle, etc.

  7. Very worthy mention .. thanks SO much for all you do!

    The neighborhood watch site "Crime in Wrigleyville" said on March 29, a register and $900 in cash were taken from the same store.

  8. Tiny Tim is onto it, don't you worry. Hist last 2 FB postings are about Recyling and a "Special Alert" about street sweeping.

    So everything will be just fine. We'll get those gum wrappers and coffee cups out of the gutters.

  9. I have it on very good authority that the victim of this shooting has several burglary convictions as well as gang ties... Perhaps a few burglaries were stopped by this shooting

    1. Yep. Colby was paroled last May after serving less than 2 months in prison despite receiving a "2 year" sentence. We have it on good authority that the covert police unit was working on a burglary investigation. How about them apples!

    2. Unless a homeowner or the cops shot Colby, it's not good news at all.
      Some murderous gang-banger is running loose in the neighborhood. And Colby's pals are likely arming up, and looking for revenge. Hope nobody gets caught in the crossfire.
      It'd take Cappleman level of illogic to see that any of this is a win for us.

  10. Why would anybody even think to become a cop in Chicago anymore?

  11. Cont.... For the sake of himself and his family I hope the young man makes good things happen in his life and is a example to others for the good and positive thing he does in the future!
