Gunshots On Thursday Night
Many calls were made to 911 and police responded within a minute, according to neighbors. They spent time searching the area with flashlights and speaking to residents. No one appears to have been hit and we have no reports of property damage. If we get any updates, we'll let you know.
Several readers wrote to say that the corner of Hazel and Sunnyside was full of people loitering earlier in the evening. One thing we've learned from CAPS meetings and gang seminars is that Uptown gangs retaliate quickly against other gangs. Please keep alert for unusual behavior and call 911 if you see anything suspicious. The cops would rather respond to an alert that turns out to be nothing than have a shooting that could have been prevented. Be the eyes and ears on your block.
The next CAPS meeting for the area is Wednesday, April 10th, 7pm, at the Clarendon Fieldhouse, 4501 N Clarendon.
