We have received several reports of shots fired in rapid succession on Sheridan between Carmen and Winona around 8:20pm. We are told that the police are on the scene. Add any additional info in the comments. Here we go again.
Update: "I heard two gunshots this evening then ran for the police scanner. We have a confirmed shooting of a 20 year old male shot outside in the driveway of 925 W. Carmen. The victim was shot in the ankle and is stable. The shooting occurred approximately at 8:25PM tonight. The offender is wearing a ski mask heading east on Carmen riding a gold color bicycle. The police currently have Carmen and Sheridan closed to through traffic for a crime scene investigation."
Heard the shots - a couple of rapid fires - from Glenwood and Argyle.ReplyDelete
It was right outside our building in the 900 block of Carmen. Four to five shots in rapid succession followed by one more. My neighbor apparently saw it and said it was a kid on a bicycle shooting at another kid running down the street, west toward Sheridan.ReplyDelete
Heard the shots: one burst of a few shots, then a couple of single shots separated by a few seconds. I looked at the clock—it was 8:18 pm.ReplyDelete
remember to vote tomorrow, neighbors!ReplyDelete
I'm hearing that a building in that area has a history of drug issues, and the victim was a resident of that building.ReplyDelete
drug issues being deals or using?ReplyDelete
I am sure he is a good kid on the honor roll!ReplyDelete
Dealing - though, come to think of it, using would just be assumed.ReplyDelete
Reportedly, much drug dealing has been going on at 925 Carmen (SRO) for months.
Cops are asking for folks to be on the lookout for a black and/or silver SUV (sound familiar) in the area. A plate # would be appreciated.
Whadda ya got there, 8 shots and an ankle was hit? That's what you should be scared about. At least mailboxes and car doors were spared this time.ReplyDelete
Scary..to think I live in front of where this incident happened. I could have been coming back from the grocery store on the corner and gotten hit by one of those bullets. If someone in 925 West Carmen is dealing drugs, which is always the cause of shootings, what can we the community do about it?ReplyDelete
I heard the shots from my apartment on sheridan and went down to investigate. There were 5 or 6 cop cars and an ambulance. No one was saying anything and the shop owner on the corner was trying to downplay it as nothing.ReplyDelete
there were problems a few years back. but the building is pretty much cleaned up. i have a few friends that live in the building and they have had no issues. unfortunately, there can be bad apples anywhere.ReplyDelete
