shots fired near Truman College shortly before noon. Witnesses saw a shot-out car, a crashed van, and a police stop, but no one seemed to know the whole story. The police blotter in Lake View Patch sheds a little more light on what happened:
"Shot Gang Member Goes Missing.
Police responded around noon Thursday to a call about a man being shot in the 1200 block of West Sunnyside Avenue near Harry S. Truman College, but when they arrived the man wasn’t there. Officers soon pulled over a white car with five bullet holes in the back and a shattered window, they said. Driving it was the victim’s 46-year-old mother.
While police couldn’t find the man, they know who he is — a 27-year-old member of the gang Black P Stones, according to the report. The car was towed for investigation and there were no reports as of Monday regarding a man with a gunshot wound being admitted to an area hospital."
