The incident was the first time that a firefighter had been shot and wounded since about 1968, said Fire Commissioner Raymond Orozco. Paramedics have been shot at over the years, but department officials could not recall any being hit. Tribune
I hear that TRU was deployed to the 4th district, 5th district and 7th district. My question is, why wasn't the whole unit deployed to the 4th district in light of the attempt murder of a firemen? That place should have been put on lock down. However, the DOC rules the day, as does the lack of inititive, and the black BDUs were sent to their assigned level 2's.
Well at 10:00 pm on sunday less than a mile from where the firemen was shot.....
Three men were found shot to death late Sunday in what Chicago police said appeared to be a drug-related attack on the city's South Side.
The bodies of three adults were discovered at about 10 p.m. Sunday in the 7800 block of South Kingston Avenue in the South Shore neighborhood after police received a call about gunfire, Officer David Banks said. Their ages and identities were not immediately released.
"Right now, it's unclear if all three victims were shot inside that location," Banks said. "It appears one was found in the vestibule area of the residence and may have staggered out."
He said preliminary reports suggest that the slayings may have been drug-related.
The building where the bodies were found was less than a mile from where a Chicago Fire Department arson investigator was shot and wounded early Sunday morning as he inspected an alley where a Molotov cocktail had been tossed against a house.
The resident of that home lamented a recent rise of violence in the neighborhood, which she blamed on gang violence....Tribune
So since they can't stop killing each other in the 4th district, 5 cars from the 22nd district, including 2211, were detailed to 004. The residents of 22 should be up in arms over this.
Thanks to a south side sergeant for the heads up on this.
This also has ramifications for the residents of 16 when shit jumps off in 25 or 15.
