Shots Fired, Gun Recovered In Wrigleyville—But Only Drug Charges Are Filed

Hull (inset) has been ordered to stay away from Wrigleyville's Roadhouse 66.
A Woodlawn man who was arrested after shots were fired on the Wrigleyville bar strip early Saturday is charged with a felony narcotics violation—but not with the gunfire.

Around 1:20 a.m., cops on patrol reported hearing gunshots and seeing people running for cover near Roadhouse 66, 3478 North Clark. Witnesses told officers that there had been a disturbance at Roadhouse moments before the gunfire. Four shell casings were found at the mouth of a nearby alley and a gun was recovered.

On Saturday, a police spokesperson said that converging cops found a man trying to conceal himself next to a parked vehicle in the 1000 block of West Cornelia. “The offender was uncooperative, at which time it was discovered that he was in possession of a weapon.”

But when Thomas Hull showed up in court this week, there were no weapons charges. Just the narcotics charge—which has him being held in lieu of $100,000.

Hull is expected to be released on electronic monitoring. If that happens, a court order stipulates that he is to have "no contact by any means, directly or indirectly, with any victim or any witness" and "no contact with Roadhouse 66."

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office did not respond to questions about the charges and the possibility of additional charges being sought at the grand jury stage.

Roadhouse 66 did not reply to a request for comment.

  6. I remember (when i lived in Chicago) lots of those bad guys hanging out under the 'L' tracks where residents park their cars. You'd walk to Al's Beef and see them lurking around, looking for prey.

  8. Build more prisons. Pay for it by taxing legalized weed, gambling and prostitution.

  9. Ladies and Gentlemen,
    Get use to this!!! This is part of the "Restorative Justice" initiative spearheaded by the Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx who is following the desires and marching orders of Cook County Board President Toni Precwinkle. I work for the courts in this county, the things that are being allowed are absolutely ridiculous. Defendants are being allowed to post bond based on what they can afford, no longer based on their criminal records. Stories like this one reported will unfortunately become the norm.
