From Ald. Cappleman's weekly newsletter:
"SHOOTING TODAY AT 1140 W. LELAND. Just before 3am today, 2 males in their 20's were shot in their legs and are reported to be in good condition. Per Commander Cesario, the incident was gang related.We heard from plenty of readers who were awoken by shots fired at 3:02. Apparently a passing police car was flagged down on Wilson within minutes (along with cries of "he's shot, he's shot"), and the EMTs at the firehouse were alerted at the same time. Both were on the scene shortly. The area was taped off and when it was light enough, the police started the search for shell casings, which lasted into the morning.
I will be joining neighbors in the area today at 6pm to do some positive loitering at Racine & Wilson. Please consider joining me and we can discuss actions to address this."
No surprise that this was gang-related. We'd really like to know if the shooters and/or victims are local, and who is providing housing to people whose only goal is to cause chaos in our community.
