Victim was from Dolton - what was he doing in that area? Hopefully he was targeted (probably gang related) and that this was an isolated incident and not random violence. Lived here a block from this shooting for 11 years and have never seen crime like this til recently.
Moved to 1400 block of S. Indiana in Sept 2002 and previously lived at 910 S Michigan for 4 years and I cannot recall that many shootings in the immediate area. Also I was president of thePark Row HomeownersAssoc in this block for several years so I had a pretty good idea of what was happening in the area. BTW I don't appreciate being called a liar. If u can't be civil, stay off the board.
Well that year there were 1500% more murders in the area. I'm imagine it's just that there weren't as many news outlets to hear about the shootings in the area. Just because you weren't aware of them, didn't mean that it wasn't happening. It's just now you get beat over the head with every incident.
