Here We Go Again...
Many readers got an unwelcome wake-up call at 3:20am: two bursts of gunfire, with anywhere between 8 and 12 shots heard. Many calls to 911 were made, and police sirens were heard immediately afterwards. We thought the shots were from around Wilson and Broadway, although people were woken up by them at Sunnyside/Sheridan, too, and as far south as Montrose and Hazel. Judging from the many emails we got, an educated guess might be around Wilson/Sheridan.
Got any more info? Please put it in the comments.
This insanity has got to end. It's like the OK Corral around here. It's very, very frightening just how eager certain Uptowners are to kill each other.
Update: It looks like the shooting happened on Kenmore near Winthrop, just north of Wilson. "This morning I found 7 spent .45 semi-auto casings at the north-west corner of Winthrop and Kenmore. Two cars (north on Kenmore on the east side of the street) had bullet holes, so it looks like the shooter had a northbound moving target. Not good news." The CAPS meeting for that area is Beat 2312, Tuesday, November 16, 7pm, Cafe Too Engagement Center, 4715 N Sheridan.
