Man shot near Belmont and Racine in critical condition

A TV news camera is aimed at Monday's shooting scene
A 27-year-old man is in critical condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center after being shot in the neck behind the 1200 block of W. Belmont Monday evening.

Police have yet to determine a motive in the shooting. A law enforcement source told CWB Chicago that the victim did not have a wallet or identification, which could indicate that he got caught up in a robbery.

Witnesses reported hearing a single gunshot around 8:35PM and the victim was soon found lying on his back near the intersection of two alleys on the north side of Belmont.

No shell casings were found, but an officer was heard saying that there was “an alley full of blood.”

Investigators believe that a single shot passed completely through the victim’s neck and then flew into the wall of a nearby home, the source said.

Nicholas Notorangelo told TV news outlets last night that the victim was wearing flip flops and carrying a Powerade when the shot rang out. Police preliminarily identified the victim as Hispanic,  but later updated that information to say that he is white.

Detectives are working with a vague suspect description: male, unknown race, 5’7” to 5’9” tall, 170 pounds, wearing a floppy white hat. He was last seen walking southbound on Racine from the north alley.

Last night's shooting was the second for our neighborhood since Saturday. A 23-year-old man was shot around 1:30AM Saturday near Addison and Lake Shore Drive. That incident is believed to be gang-related.

Cops probe weekend gunfire in nearby Lincoln Park

Detectives worked Monday to determine if a 28-year-old man who told cops that he was shot in Logan Square early Sunday was actually shot in nearby Lincoln Park.

The man, who had a gunshot wound to his right arm, pulled up to Presence St. Joseph’s Hospital around 3:40AM in a car. He was subsequently transferred to Illinois Masonic. Police said the man was “very uncooperative” with their investigation.

As the sun came up Sunday morning, police responded to multiple 911 calls from the 2500 and 2600 blocks of N. Lakeview and N. Stockton.

One woman called after finding her white Subaru “shot up” on the street around 6:15AM.

Two hours later, a man reported finding three shell casings on Stockton Drive. He told officers that he thought he heard gunshots a little after 3 o’clock that morning—shortly before the gunshot victim showed up at nearby St. Joe’s.

This morning, a  third driver found a bullet hole in a car which had been parked in the 2500 block of Stockton since the weekend.

  3. From the Second City Cop blog today and something to keep in mind for Wednesday's meeting:
    This is Brilliant!
    This is exactly why we will never be a boss on this job - we can't think at this level:
    On 1st watch in 19 we down on avg 4 beat cars per night. Why yo may ask?????? To put up 2 cars to drive up and down LSD from Lawrenve to Fullerton all night with their lights activated for visibility and deterrence . 2 Frikin two man cars to do absolutely nothing but that. Who comes up with this bullshit. If the Commander and Captain had any balls whatsoever they'd tell downtown how stupid this is, but they don't . They're too worried about getting that next jump up the ladder
    Two cars, burning city gas, running up and down Lake Shore Drive with lights activated....and there is NO emergency situation.

    That. Is. Awesome! We never, in a million years, would have thought of something like this. We guess we just don't have what it takes....thank god.

    The liability factor alone has got to be monstrous, but that isn't stopping anyone. In fact, we have an e-mail that says 020 is doing the EXACT SAME THING! Their reasoning is that the blue lights will scare away the ne'er-do-wells from the south and west sides who have driven north side shooting, homicide and general crime to levels unseen in years, decades even. If it's true, we have some bad news for the brains at 35th Street - it ain't working.

    Can anyone tell us if this is an entire lake front initiative? Maybe someone from the media would like to follow the blue lights for a night or two, then ask Special Ed why cars are rushing from one end of the drive to another with no call and no destination?

      Every District along LSD gives two cars to this nonsense? How'd you like to live in one of these districts? You don't have anyone patrolling your beat so they can pull this smoke and mirrors bullshit on LSD. These people should call their alderman and demand this nonsense stop.

  4. At least the cops we should have are going to non-taxpaying areas that hate the police.

    1. 100% correct.
      AND, if you look at the allocation on a per-capita basis, it only gets worse. Way worse.
      Fucking great management there Rahm and CPD brass. Leave open an area rich-for-the-plunder, where citizens generally behave and generally contribute. Fucking great.

    1. Remember, you have to specifically vote NO. You can't just leave the space blank. A blank vote is considered a yes vote.
      NO on Judge Marvin LUCKMAN.

  7. Hey, it's good to see that Tunney quickly came out rallying for his constituents following this horrific scene.... NOT.

    1. Tunneys generally responds like a sack of hammers ... anyone remember that CAPS meeting a couple of years ago where he strolled in to the meeting late, in a dirty t-shirt, shorts, flip flops, munching on a bag of popcorn, and then sat down at the head table and stared off vacantly into outer space until 8:00? That's how he operates. Expect nothing out of him, and you won't be disappointed.

  8. It's time for the gangs to start buying health insurance for their members.
    No health insurance, no emergency room care!

    1. Yep. Makes you wonder how much is spent per day, week, month & year to patch up all the thugs. Good money being flushed down the drain.

    2. They can start by throwing a big net over the 88 people that show up in the emergency room that "don't know nothin'". Don't know his name, where he lives, his phone number, what happened, where he works.......nuttin'! We're all paying for this in more ways than one.

    3. Can you imagine going to medical school and you wind up fixing gang members. These doctors and nurses must hate their jobs.

    4. It's BIG business and VERY stable employment!

  9. One of my good work friends says the victim is a friend of his family from the suburbs and not involved in any gangs nor ever has been. He is just a regular guy who was walking down the street... Wtf.

    1. According to the police at the CAPS meeting, this was not a random shooting.

      Delete
    2. Being "not random" does not mean that the man was not robbed. Nor does it mean that he doesn't live in the neighborhood. Nor does it mean much of anything.

  10. I pray for the victim.

    1. Terrific. That surely elevates you to 'Real Contributor' status.
      How about hitting the tip jar, hard!
      How about making a scene at a few CAPS meetings.
      How about confronting any of the Three Stooges, IRL (that means 'In Real Life', such as 'In Their Real Faces')?

  11. This is why I moved out of that shit show of a neighborhood a week ago and now reside in Naperville. After 23 years in the hood (and 13 years about 2 blocks from the scene of the shooting), I grew tired of the scum slithering into our neighborhood and our worthless elected officials seemingly doing NOTHING about it year after year. Stay safe out there former neighbors.
