We were forwarded an update from one of the 20th District's CAPS facilitators:
"Here is what the police have put together on the shooting last night near Winona and Sheridan at around 6:00pm.If you have any information that might help the police to identify the suspects, please contact the 20th District police or call 911.
Three Black Males were having a loud argument. They were located on Winona near or in the parking lot of the small strip mall located at the corner of Winona and Sheridan. One member of this group started to running East towards Sheridan while wildly shooting a gun over his shoulder. At Sheridan, he started to run South on Sheridan while still wildly shooting his gun. Thankfully he did not hit another person. He did hit windows or doors in 3 stores and hit 2 vehicles. The Police found 7 spent shell casings in the area.
Even thought the Police arrived by very quickly on the scene, all 3 of the Black Males were gone from the area. At this time, there are no leads on who these 3 individuals were."
According to the events calendar for the 20th District, the next beat meeting for Beat 2024 -- where the shooting occurred -- isn't until the 3rd Thursday of June. However, we urge concerned residents to attend Beat 2023's meeting, which is May 12th at 7pm, at Kenmore Plaza, 5225 N Kenmore. Foster divides the two beats, so those officers may be knowledgeable about about what happened and can update you and answer questions.
