Gunfire at Wrigley
Not the image the city wants when the Cubs are looking at post-season play:
- Video sent to CWB Chicago anonymously appears to show a street brawl and shooting attempt unfolding on the streets of Wrigleyville early Sunday. We reported exclusively on the incident hours later.
The whole thing played out around 3 AM, at 1143 West Addison — less than a block from Wrigley Field.
In the video, a man dressed in a white tee shirt and long red shorts reaches into his waistband and pulls out what appears to be a small gun at the 16-second mark. He places an object behind his back, and he then points the apparent handgun at a group of men and women who are brawling nearby.
The man in red shorts then charges at another man, tackles him, and holds him to the ground while others beat and kick the apparent victim.
Throughout the battery, two people near the camera are heard yelling "black lives matter" commentary as well as "Stop kicking! No! No! No! Stop!"
The video can be seen at this link here. Thanks to the CWB blog for covering this.
