Ald. Osterman's Statement On Last Night's Activity
"Last night, around 6:00pm there was a gang-related shooting on the 5000 block of Marine Drive. The incident involved several individuals on foot as well as in a vehicle. There were approximately 5-8 shots fired.
Chicago Police arrived at the scene within a couple of minutes and recovered shell casings. The vehicle was last seen fleeing the area heading south on Lake Shore Drive.
Last evening I met with the Acting Commander about the incident. 20th District Police are currently investigating the incident and no arrests have been made. Additional gang crime and tactical units have been deployed in the area.
