Cops: Tuesday "Shooting Victim" Shot Himself In The Butt

He shot himself in the ass.

That’s the latest word on the 22-year-old Logan Square man who told police that he was shot in the 1000 block of West Belmont early yesterday morning.

He is the 29th person to accidentally shoot themselves in Chicago this year, according to the expert trackers at HeyJackass.com

44th Ward Alderman Tom Tunney wrote on Facebook this afternoon that
...there were no bullet holes found in the alleged victim’s clothing, and video evidence from Illinois Masonic [Hospital] indicated that the alleged victim did not walk himself to the hospital but was dropped off from a vehicle matching the description he gave of the alleged offender’s vehicle.
Police speculate that the man shot himself while placing a gun in his waistband.

As we reported yesterday morning, police came up empty-handed when they scoured the area of Belmont and Sheffield for witnesses and evidence after the victim showed up at Masonic.

Foot traffic in the 1000 block of West Sheffield was light at the time of the purported shooting because both 1000 Liquors and its adjoining late-night bar, Big City Tap, were closed for renovations.

  1. This is when he chooses to comment on a crime issue? Typical.

    1. But still nothing in his e-mail blast. I wonder if he will tell the CUBS that if they make it to the playoffs, they will have to hire private security like he tells the local street festivals.

  3. So a known gang member shot himself in the ass in our neighborhood. Wonder if he will get any street cred for that. Hopefully they found the weapon and he can nurse his ass in the can.

    1. He needs 3 years no parole for firing a gun in the city.

  4. obviously he came down with friends to rob some one and he shot him self. He needs to be listed at the police station and on corners to call police when him and his robing friends come back

  8. It is funny that Tunney suddenly appears. Stop by Peet's Coffee on Clark where you can find him for a few hours every morning reading the paper. You would that that what's going on in this neighborhood he would be able to spend his time doing something a little more productive. Oh, but why would he do that. Enjoy your coffee Tom, & stellar job you've been doing.

  9. Did they get the gun? Was it illegal? Will he be charged for having an illegal gun?

    Yea, he only makes a statement when the subject matter is buns.

    Whether sticky or embedded with a bullet.

  12. Medical personnel stated that the bullet was a fraction of an inch from becoming a potentially fatal brain injury.

  14. So, has this gang thug been charged with making a false statement to police, illegal or reckless discharge of a firearm, and (most likely) illegal possession of a firearm?

  15. I hope he is arrested and charged!

  16. If he shot himself in the ass, he should be brain dead, right?
