56 Floors?

  • A man says a bullet came through the window of a Chicago high-rise, and now he's trying to figure out who fired the shot.

    Neel Sukhatme said he was doing some work late Sunday night after his children went to bed when he heard a loud noise and felt glass flying.

    He said a bullet came through the window of his parent's condo on the 56th floor of a high-rise in the 400-block of North Lake Shore Drive.
Most likely just a random asshole, but 56 floors up? Rifle?

Could be a rifle or could be a handgun round. Depends which side his window faces. Idiots shooting handguns in the air don't care that a 9mm or .357 can kill over 100 yards away. Neel's parents escaped India to make a better life for their family in the U.S. Too bad they picked Chicago. Life in this city teaches hard lessons. Act accordingly.

I've always wondered about those NYC high rise
apts., condos, "homes" that always show floor to
ceiling windows with no curtains. That's a fish-bowl
special to me with all the nuts in NYC. I understand
the darkened room thing watching the city lights.
But how many nuts out there, with silencers, either
aiming or taking pot shots? And don't you think the
more exclusive, expensive, posh buildings would draw
more fire?
This was more or less a horizontal shot, as opposed to
up from the ground.

Guarantee: no one factored this scenario into
the Predict-O-Crime computer program.
And don't take no geek bullshit. Ask any
sniper: the angles, wind drifts, bullet drops
are endless.
At 56 floors up, would this even register on
ShotSpotter, provided one was even installed
in this neighborhood?
Prediction: this guy gets off scott free unless
he makes a hobby out of this.

From pics I've seen, that bullet hole originated from a near-level trajectory.

Wildest scenario: fired from another building nearby and within a few floors height.

Likely scenario: fired by Neel Sukhatme himself from the inside.

The "stray bullet coming through a window 56 floors up" is a cockamamie story dreamt up by Neel because he fucked up in Mommy and Daddy's condo while they were away.

There'd be glass particles inside as window glass in high rises are uber tempered and break differently than most glass (kind of like auto windshields/glass).

Bottom line? Neel Sukhatme is on some bullshit.

NeEl did not take fire from ground level. That round was fired from the balcony or rooftop of a nearby building. More than likely some asshole thinking he was celebrating the holiday with his noisemaker and "safely" firing toward the Lake where the bullet would just simply fall into the water. Some liquor fueled asshole who thinks gunfire is a similar celebratory method to skyrockets. This was no gang war gone awry in the upscale community, this was another Done-well-in-life-so-far asshole with access to a pistol who lives nearby.

A pistol shot can easily reach that height and break a window.

In imperial units, terrestrial gravity is 32 ft/sec^2. If we say 56 stories is about 700 feet that height equates to about 150 ft/sec of velocity from the ground.

Muzzle velocity from a 9mm is about 1500 ft/sec, so the gravitational effect on bullet on the way up would shave off only about 1/10 of the initial energy leaving the muzzle.

Air resistance is probably the bigger limit, but we all know that the air resistance over a mere 700 feet is nowhere near enough to greatly slow a bullet.

I'd say nobody could shoot a pistol *accurately* 56 stories up, but yeah, you could definitely break a window.

Bullet "came through the window"? Okay, so where is that round? I've seen some crazy trajectories. Round traveled straight through two panes of glass upwards figuring the shot lined up with someone on the front lawn except a fresh snowfall said no way. Shot came from five blocks away and had been on a downward trajectory until hitting the window then reversed it. Weird.

(OT) Breaking news headline:

Breaking News
More than 100 people shot in Chicago over long Fourth of July weekend

Chicago saw one of its most violent Fourth of July weekends in recent years: At least 101 people were shot between Friday afternoon and early Wednesday, nearly half of them over 12 hours as the long holiday drew to a close. Fifteen of the wounded died.The last time the Fourth holiday span.

Wow over 100 shot rahm look here you spent millions on overtime denied officers time with their families while you and your pathetic bunch had the "wine and cheese" with your team of "valets" err "armed bodyguards" all overpaid out of rank CPD coppers who also get the huge pension dip as commanders or sergeants rate!!

The "blood rahm" the "blood" everywhere, maybe you and the 50 and durbin,duckworth,toni and the rest can bastardize everyone from President trump to hard working CPD officers along with your dishonest media clan 24/7, but the stench is on you, the people should be up in arms,father flaky jackson and the rest should be marching at your offices and your homes demanding an end to the violence, the murder, the carnage. The only way these morons come out is when a police officers does anything and the 24/7 "we ate the police" dishonest media runs constantly the story of the copper and puts their lying liberal slant on it! Rahm will never forget your pathetic tearful nonsense when you came out about jvd after you hid the video to get elected! Look what you have caused rahm! sickening!

The President is leaving "the forgotten men and women" of this city state county on their own, no mayor sending in 1 ice cream style van and 20 dea officers is nothing but the old "dog and pony" show as you gloat about all the help you brought here! The only way trump can do anything here is to send dept. of justice people throughout city hall-and over to county side immediately to forensically audit everything lets see who the real criminals are! then maybe they could show some mercy and look at CPD pension funds to see over the years where "our money" has been going, you know like the dv (daley family) urban 60 million "poof" gone loan! Who authorized that? whoever should be prosecuted and indicted! Taking police retirees healyh care away mayor as you violate federal laws and sprinkle billions around and the pension board come on where is "our money?" Crickets again::

Well, I sure am glad "Chicago Police" are "investigating".
On that note, with the bullet of large caliber coming INTO the apartment and through the glass so cleanly, one would think it would be easy to FIND, oh yeah and where are the pics of the walls, you know, where it went through them inside the apartment?

WUT ?No bullet? No holes in any walls?

I agree with poster number one. Looks like it was shot up close and the bullet is outside somewhere, however far it traveled.

If the bullet was fired from outside, then it should be inside. The building is under a negative pressure, so the glass will break inward for the most part. The ceiling of the apartment is concrete, so if it were on an upward trajectory, it should have hit the ceiling somewhere.

The building did not have a meth LAB in it. Users yes, LAB, no. That's the idiot that popped out of the apartment with a nightstick vs. two officers in the hallway and actually decided to surrender instead of get ventilated.

Not only do we have 1200ft per sec .45 acp now but also 1500ft per sec 9mm. Don't people have chronometers or does everyone just happily believe claims from ammo manufacturers? Don't get me wrong you can get those numbers out of heavy charges and light bullets from both calibers, but you are not getting that out of Winchester white box or even common defensive loads.

You may know a little something about physics but obviously very little about ballistics.

Most handgun bullets lose 1/4 of their velocity in the first 100 yards. Which means that they lose 1/2 their energy. The aerodynamic drag is enormous. Especially with short body blunt tail handgun bullets.

A bullet fired vertically from the ground going horizontal to break a vertical window....explain if you can.

Also a bullet striking tempered glass makes a distinct mark. Unless bullet is fired close it may not penetrate. It will punch the glass, perhaps making a small hole with a cone shaped divot on the inside of the glass. Very little fragments.
