As you may know, a man was shot and killed last night at approximately 10:20 p.m. midnight in the Loyola Park parking lot at Lunt. The police do not believe it was gang-related and currently are investigating whether last night’s shooting is related to Sunday morning’s shooting on Sherwin Avenue. They have not reached any conclusions at this time, but hope to have the results of a ballistic tests later today. They also are examining footage from nearby cameras.
I spoke this morning with Mayor Emanuel, who is closely monitoring the situation. The Mayor promised the full resources of the Chicago Police Department in the investigation, including the deployment of additional police officers in our area.
I urge anyone with information that may assist in the investigation of either shooting to contact the Chicago Police Department.
