Cops Investigate Lincoln Park Shooting And Gunfire On Lake View Street

Two shooting incidents left a Lincoln Park teenager injured and a Lake View block rattled overnight. No one is in custody in either case.

Shortly before midnight, a car carrying suspected gang members rolled onto the 2600 block of North Hoyne and opened fire, striking a 17-year-old boy in his right leg, police said.

Witnesses say the shots came from a light blue Oldsmobile Cutlass occupied by 4 to 6 Hispanic or white men who shouted gang slogans before firing.

The victim is in fair condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

Less than an hour later, Lake View residents reported gunfire in the 1500 block of West Nelson, police said.

One person who heard the gunfire told CWB that they believed the shots came from between two homes on the east end of the block around 12:45 a.m.

Police confirmed the shots but said no injuries were reported on Nelson.

      Maybe it's time for you to admit that you don't know what you're talking about.

  2. "Witnesses say the shots came from a light blue Oldsmobile Cutlass occupied by 4 to 6 Hispanic or white men who shouted gang slogans before firing."

  4. Technically Damen and Fullerton is not in Lincoln Park, but this shooting occured on Hoyne, just south of Diversey, which IS Lincoln Park. So what does "fullerton and dame" have to do with this?

    1. East Detroit relabeled themselves Eastpointe to associate themselves more with the Grosse Pointes decades ago. It didn't work there either. It's all still CHICAGO gurls!

  5. CIB - Does "Police confirmed the shots but said no injuries" on the Nelson story mean they recovered casings or just confirming that people indeed think they heard gunshots? This is very near my home and terrifies me. I'm surprised this story hasn't been picked up by SLVN. Thank you for reporting it (as always!)

    1. Our understanding is that at least one casing was recovered.
