UPTOWN: Cops Prepare For Gang Payback After Rogers Park Triple-Shooting

The shooting of a high-profile rapper has North Side gang violence on the rise, cops say. And a triple-shooting this morning in Rogers Park may bring payback to Uptown.

CWBChicago reported exclusively that 26-year-old rapper Keith “Bang Da Hitta” Hayer suffered a leg injury in a shooting near Broadway and Leland in Uptown on August 6.

Hayer is associated with a faction of the Gangster Disciples street gang that runs on the Far North Side, according to police.

Around 4:30 a.m. Sunday, one person was killed and two others injured in a drive-by shooting in the 7700 block of North Ashland, near Hayer’s stomping ground.

Now, cops have been warned to be on the lookout for retaliatory strikes in the Uptown gang conflict area, which is centered on the intersection of Wilson and Broadway.

The Far North Side’s 24th Police District had recorded only three shooting incidents this summer before today’s triple-shooting. That’s down sharply from nine incidents at this point last summer.

But with Hayer’s high-profile shooting on the board, cops expect rival gangs to return to their old habits.

  1. Bang is associated with PBG which runs around Farwell and Morse which beef with LOC which is Howard street from where yesterday shooting happened. That shooting shouldn't have anything to do with Uptown.

    2. It probably happened in Uptown because Hayer happened to be there and the guys targeting him followed him there and decided to make the hit there. It's probably not because Uptown's any sort of turf for either side.

    3. You are all welcome to continue with your theories off-line. We're sharing some info from an internal warning to 19th district officers.

  2. I'm glad I know about this stuff -- as a 44 yr old father of two kids who lives in Lakeview. LOL -- When am I moving to the burbs? Damn soon.

    1. I highly recommend the suburbs. At some point all the "I want to be near culture and the lake and things and stuff!" that leaves most people remaining in the city doesn't matter anymore. The security and peace of mind of a nice suburb with good schools is 100x better than anything the city can offer for people raising a family there. Good luck to you :)

  3. At 1pm Friday I sat in Subway and watched a drug transaction go down in the ally across the street. I went next door to Hair Cuttery and noticed a shifty guy on a blue 10-speed near the ally entrance. As I was already paying attention, I watched him pull out a can and tag the front door of the 4433 N. Broadway building and take off. So.. Yeah, it's on. Broad daylight. Go see the tag for yourself.

  4. Broadway and Wilson would be the P Stone Hoola gang. They are pretty quiet most their shooters are dead or in jail. They are in a rebuilding phase.

  5. Sadly gangsta culture is now considered identity politics.
