Cops Investigate Reported Shooting Near Belmont and LSD

Chicago police are investigating after a 27-year-old man showed up at Illinois Masonic Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his right foot around 5:30 this morning.

The victim initially told police that the shooting happened along the lake front near Belmont. He later revised his story to say it happened near Belmont and Broadway.

Police have been unable to locate shell casings at either location.

The only report of gunshots in the area came around 3 o'clock this morning from a single 911 caller near Sheridan and Barry. No evidence of shooting was found there, according to police.

  2. We need more surveillance cameras. I was bussing and walking around Lakeview and noticed that there are no blue light cameras anywhere. Not one. There are no security cameras on the outside of most stores. If the police can release 100 dashcams of police shootings, there should be as many surveillance cameras of shootings along main streets.
    Detroit passed a law last year that every convenience store and gas station had to have a surveillance camera because of too many shootings, murders. And it helped the police solve cases and catch perps. But then again, Detroit has tougher judges that sentence than we do in Cook County.

    1. There are a number of blue light cameras in Boystown. They, like all blue light cameras, are ineffective and about a third don't actually work, but they're there.
