Man Shot In Wrigleyville Monday; Lakeview Records 10th Shooting Of The Year

Police are investigating after a 25-year-old Belmont Cragin man was shot on the Clark Street bar strip in Wrigleyville around 2:15 this morning. No one is in custody. The victim is in good condition.

Witnesses describe a confusing scene with the victim being shot in the arm and a person being dragged by the shooter’s vehicle as it pulled out of a parking space near Country Club and Rockwood bars on Clark Street.

Three men—two Hispanic and one black—fled the scene in a white Chevy Caprice or Crown Victoria with one headlight and a taillight out, according to a witness. The vehicle was last seen turning the wrong direction, westbound, on Newport from Clark Street.

On A Tear

  1. During my 10 years in Lakeview I never realized it was that dangerous - but once I started reading this blog and looking around a bit more, I realized I was just lucky all those years. Anyhow - sold last fall (in 4 days mind you) and moved. I miss the lakefront running path and Pat's pizza - both things are sadly lacking where I moved - but it's safe here.

  2. where are the cops the cubs promised even on non-game days? At 2am a squad should be parked on Clark between addison and newport EVERY NIGHT

  3. They went to eat ...and that guy tried to stab the shooter
