May 6, 2019
Dear Neighbor:

Last night an individual was shot in the leg on the 5900 block of Kenmore around 9:30pm. Two offenders fled the scene in a minivan, and the victim is recovering from injuries at St. Francis Hospital. The Chicago Police Department is investigating the incident and reviewing video footage from the area. 

Thank you to the 24th District officers who promptly responded to the scene last night. If you have additional information regarding this case, please contact Area North Detectives at 312-744-8263. I will share an update on this case in my Friday newsletter this week.

The 24th District will increase police patrols in this area. With summer coming, I will host a meeting the first week of June with the Commanders of both the 20th and 24th districts. I will share details about this meeting and opportunities to volunteer with our Safe Summer Nights programming this summer in our Friday newsletter.
