Lake Shore Drive Shooting

  • A man was shot early Saturday while driving on Lake Shore Drive in the North Side Lincoln Park neighborhood.

    The 24-year-old man was driving southbound on North Lake Shore Drive about 12:20 a.m., when a light-colored car pulled up alongside his vehicle and someone inside fired shots, police said.

    He was shot in the left side of his face, exited Lake Shore Drive at Fullerton and called police, police said.

    The man was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where his condition had stabilized, police said.
Crime might be down - but the perception of crime? In Lincoln Park? On Lake Shore Drive? All we need now is a "Lake Shore Drive VRI" program.

Random shooting of innocent seems kind of strange at that location. Initiation into gang to occur on LSD is peculiar. Sounds more like the person was a deliberate target and followed to make a hit.

Crime is NOT down. Just because McCarthy says it's down is BS. He manipulates the numbers so it appears crime is down. In actuality, you can wipe your ass with those
Compstat reports!

It probably is crime, but who is to say it was not an act of terror? How can you tell? Similar has recently happened on the West Coast.

Obama sent us his former chief of staff to be our mayor. What more help from the white house could we ask for? We should be thankful, that he cares.

Boy... Rahm has to be busier than a cat trying to cover up shit on a linoleum floor...

He's in full suppression mode...
Gotta keep pushing that "Crime is down, Chicago is safe, we have too many Cops so we don't wanna hire" narrative going...

We keep an eye on the news in hope that one of Rahm's big money contributors is very loudly and publicly grabbed and dragged to a waiting van...

Remember people... The powers that be just want you to get the plate and send a flash...

Doing real Police-y type shit gets you fired and imprisoned.

Nitwitness News will have a chopper flying beside it running live feed though the open sliding door of all manner of colorful movement restriction, bodily orifice intrusion, earhole fingering and blowing of funky breath in the abductee's eye...

>Foof! "YAAHH! My EYE!"<

...Among other things.

Yeah... Crime's down huh?

I live on LSD and there is no way that I want to look out my window and see an ARV!
If crime is down and perception is up someone needs to tell Rahm that the purpose of perception is knowledge and it's primary purpose is to guide action! And this does not mean putting ARV's on LSD. I don't know all the facts but my perception is that we need more police officers on the beat. You guys seem so stretched that if something major goes down this whole city is going to be up for grabs. How many calls were outstanding after the Montrose beach un-authorized concert incident?
I use to see cops pulling over cars on LSD all the time. Now I just see car accidents and motorcycles and cars drag racing. Maybe if cops were pulling people over then people would not get shot in the face.

WE NEED A MAYOR WHO IS PRO POLICE AND PRO EDUCATION!

This shooting probably involved someone with a $3000 a month section 8 "supervoucher" living large on the tax payers dime..

You don't see squad cars on LSD because they're rarely there. Traffic Section officers are being deployed daily to the districts as part of the ERP. The City gets government funding for having a traffic unit, but I doubt this is what the feds had in mind. When you use Traffic Enforcement as a form of VRI, you leave LSD up for grabs.

No, no. There was a "perception" that he was shot in the left side of his face.

He "heard a shot," and then "felt pain." Investigators are working to see if there is any connection between the two events.

This guy, a south side gang banger, was more than likely partying with other bangers at the Addison Rocks along the lake and was followed from there when shot. This would be the 3rd person shot that was related to gang parties at the Addison Rocks. Thank God we don't have Summer Mobile anymore or some of that violence may have been curtailed.

Another 4 people shot dead on Saturday night. Yeah Garry, crime is down. For Chicago's highest paid city employee, even making more then Rahm himself, Garry sure isn't doing a good job. When is the plug getting pulled on this guy? We need some fresh blood in the supes office.Its down right embarrassing at this point!

Fullerton and LSD attracts a lot of assholes at night during the summertime, particularly on weekends. This is not the first shooting around there.

Just think if we have a terrorist attack Chicago is prepared. How will Rham spin that? The perception is we would be an easy target.

Question:
Since Lake Shore Drive is US Route 41, can't Garry "The Gun Guy" find an outside investigative unit (FBI, ISP) to take responsibility, and remove this from our shooting totals? Just a little idea for McSmarterThanEveryone.

Fioretti is pro police and pro education. Karen cannot win. She should and must soon throw her support to Fioretti so Chicago can be safe. Rahm is not interested in hiring more cops. And neither are all the black aldermen. They believe police are the enemy. Vote for Fioretti..,your life depends in it.

I've been in 018 for a long time.the main issue is the Lake Front. these Gang bangers are out there all night long.it's when they go back to their cars that all the shit starts. We definitely need a summer Mobile force again.

Everyone should be free to travel lsd anytime.
As for you, why you would broadcast where your 'safe haven' is, is beyond understanding.

Yup. No more 'pretty blue lights along the way', either. In more ways than one.

I dunno. I worked a beat car in 018 for awhile. When we worked midnites the first thing we did out of rollcall was to head to the lakefront and shut it down. Didnt wait for summer mobile or anyone else. Never had a problem.

No, he didn't hear a shot, it was a loud retort or a noise. Could have been a car backfire or a balloon popping or a little firecracker. Where is the proof it was a gunshot?

No you can't. They are not absorbent. Not soft either. And they don't break down and biodegrade when you flush them. So no, you cannot wipe your ass with them. They truly are no good for shit.
