- From Lake Effect News: "Police apprehended a 25-year-old man believed to be responsible for a shooting on the 4700 block of North Sheridan Road on early Sunday morning, Nov. 15." Read the whole story here and see where he lives. (Ald. Shiller will be surprised, given her recent statements.)
- At Beat 2312's CAPS meeting on Tuesday, we learned more about the shootings on November 7th. Of the five people arrested in connection with the incident, one was Corteze Reed, who, if guilty, is obviously a slow learner. He'd just been released from jail for a previous shooting incident at the very same place, which happened last February just as kids from Alternatives were getting out for the evening. What an accomplishment for someone who's not even old enough to legally drink yet. One of the other people arrested is now eligible to be a Class X offender, which carries additional penalties and longer sentencing.
We will post the trial dates for everyone involved in these incidents, as the information becomes available to us. We urge everyone to express their outrage and concern by showing up in court if you can. Typing or texting on UU, while we love it, isn't going to influence the judge, but your presence in court may very well do it.
