Man shot on the Northwest Side marks first homicide of 2018

In Chicago’s first homicide of 2018, a 51-year-old man was fatally shot a little more than two hours into the New Year while driving on the Northwest Side.

The man was among 12 people shot Sunday and early Monday in attacks across the city as people rang in the New Year amid sub-zero temperatures.

The incidents included two double shootings, a teen injured on the South Side and a man shot after a fight in the Loop.

In the Northwest Side killing, the man was driving a Toyota Camry south on Pulaski Road when he was shot and the car veered into a fence, police said.


The slain man was found in the 3900 block of West Cornelia Avenue around 2:20 a.m. Monday in the Avondale neighborhood with a gunshot wound to the back. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

The car rested on an angle with its passenger door open in front of a fence topped with barbed wire. The man’s body could be seen slumped over the steering wheel.

Some revelers in a nearby bar said they didn’t hear anything over the loud music. They said they only saw the car with fogged up windows when they peeked outside as police arrived.

In the Loop shooting, a 31-year-old man was wounded in the abdomen in the first block of Wabash Avenue after getting in a fight with three other males around 1:45 a.m.


A second man was injured with bruises on his face and body, police said.

Both were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where their conditions were stabilized.

Police said they recovered a weapon at the scene and are questioning two males.

The large crime scene sprawled across the block on Wabash under the elevated tracks at the Washington and Wabash CTA stop.

A man in jeans limped into an ambulance and was rushed away as people gawked at the scene while leaving bars and parties.

In the final two shootings of 2017, a man and a woman were seriously injured in a Far South Side apartment.

The two were in a residence in the 11500 block of South State Street in the West Pullman neighborhood when shots were fired, police said. They both were rushed to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

The man, 33, was in critical condition with gunshot wounds to the abdomen and shoulder. The woman, 30, was in serious condition with a gunshot wound to the face.

In other shootings:

  • Around 3:25 a.m. Monday on the Far South Side, a 24-year-old man was shot in the leg and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where his condition was stabilized. He was standing on the sidewalk in the 500 block of West 127th Place in the West Pullman neighborhood when someone approached on foot and fired shots, police said.
  • Around 2:15 a.m. on the Far North Side, 24-year-old man was shot in the face West Rogers Park neighborhood after he fought with a male in a residence in the 6100 block of North Claremont Avenue. He was taken to Presence St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, where he was stabilized.
  • Around 1:30 a.m. on the West Side, a man and a woman were shot in the South Austin neighborhood. They were in an SUV in the 5400 block of West Jackson Boulevard when someone pulled alongside in a white sedan and fired shots, police said. The man, 21, was stabilized at Stroger Hospital with gunshot wounds to the arm and side of the head. The woman, 18, was stabilized at the same hospital with a gunshot wound to the wrist.
  • Around 1:25 a.m. on the South Side, a 35-year-old man was shot in the East Chatham neighborhood, police said. He was standing on the sidewalk in the 8100 block of South Drexel Avenue when he was shot in the shoulder. He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center but transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition was stabilized.
  • Around 12:05 a.m. on the Northwest Side, a 24-year-old man was shot in the buttocks while walking in the 4000 block of West Oakdale Avenue in the Belmont Gardens neighborhood. He was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where his condition was stabilized.
  • Around 10:45 p.m. Monday on the Northwest Side, a 26-year-old man was shot in the leg in the Logan Square neighborhood. The man was walking in the 1900 block of North Sawyer Avenue when someone fired at him from a vehicle, police said. He was taken to Norwegian American Hospital in good condition.
  • Around 2 p.m. on the South Side, a 17-year-old boy was shot in the buttocks while he was in the 7300 block of South Sangamon Avenue in the Englewood neighborhood, police said. He arrived at St. Bernard Hospital and was listed in good condition.

The pavement apes are adapting to their environment. They don’t go dormant in the cold anymore.

Makes sense, they are taxing them selves out of existence... pretty common around here (and a big no no) is to live in Maine and have say a PO box in NH so you don't have to pay state income tax. Pretty rare now since they instituted a fink website where you can report people anonymously.

The ones in Toronto are still wearing parkas when it's 60... pants at half mast though.

Chicago police teaming up with feds once more to fight shocking rise in violent carjackings


Chicago cops are calling in the feds—again--to help combat violent carjackings that have reached record levels in the city.

Police announced at a news conference Sunday that they are teaming up with federal authorities, including agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, to deal with the problem.

“We’ll look at the patterns and trends and we’re bringing federal resources to bear because quite frankly they have some things that they can realize that we can’t on the state and local level,” Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said.

He said the new carjacking strike force will also include state police and prosecutors, and suburban town police departments.

Johnson said the stepped-up enforcement effort will also include taking some carjacking prosecutions to federal court, where sentences can be tougher.

“We’re not playing around,” he said. “They want to continue to go out there and take the easy path of taking someone’s vehicle then were going to take that path of punishment to the fullest extent of the law.”

The new city-wide effort could have at its disposal a federal chopper to track vehicles that are reported carjacked, Fox 32 Chicago reported Friday.

Carjackings have risen sharply in Chicago, from about 700 in 2016 to about 950 in 2017, the station reported.

There have been about 90 so far this year, an average of three a day.

Chicago police say most carjackings are committed at the point of a gun.

Last year, Chicago police and the FBI established a joint task force to deal with a surge in carjackings on the West Side.

Johnson said that task force is still conducting investigations.

Three teenage thugs got more than they bargained for Friday when they tried to carjack a vehicle on the North Side that belonged to a retired Chicago cop Ricky Fobbs, Fox 32 reported.

The vehicle was recovered and the teens arrested after Fobbs fought back.

“Just something I felt I had to do,” Fobbs told the station.
