February Starts With a Bang Bang Bang!
We can hardly wait for the national news coverage - all the sweeping shots of Lake Shore Drive, the skyscrapers seen from the lake, aerial views, and then this:
- Police are investigating a murder on a major expressway ramp right by Chicago’s convention center on Friday morning.
A 32-year-old woman was fatally shot in a van “riddled with bullets” on Lake Shore Drive, near the Stevenson Expy.
State Police said a brown full-size van pulled up and fired 10 to 14 shots at a 2000 white Dodge van around 4:20 a.m., State Police Capt. Luis Gutierrez said.
The woman driving the van on the ramp between Lake Shore Drive and the Stevenson was killed, but a female passenger in the van was not injured, Gutierrez said. The vehicle was stopped in the area of the ramp that curves around McCormick Place.
Don't worry though - it's a State Police Investigation. Contact cards could never have prevented this one. McCompStat is safe for one more day.
