Dear Friend, ,

Last night, just before midnight, two Uptown men were shot west of Truman College at 1255 West Wilson. Soon after, at approximately 12:30AM, another man from the south side of the city was shot near Uplift High School.   The police believe these shootings are part of the same incident and believe they are gang-related. At this time, no one has been arrested.


The incident is still under investigation with Area 3 Detectives. Police presence has been increased in the area.


Positive loitering will occur tomorrow night, Friday, July 29, 2011, at 7:00 PM, at the corner of Wilson and Hazel. We will then walk west to Wilson and Magnolia. Please support our neighborhood by attending this event.






Signature James

Alderman James Cappleman

From our previous post about this: “The police officer who told us this would be happening says: “Your readership needs to contact their respective Commander, The Chief of Patrol and Aldermanic contenders. Why should hard-working, tax-paying citizens not get the police service that we deserve?”

Here’s their contact information – and a reminder that this decision is being made by the brass, NOT by our local command. Be polite and express your reasoning for opposing this decision.
