Gunshots in Lakeview, really an act of vandalism

Written By Chicago News Report on Tuesday, May 24, 2011 | 5/24/2011 04:33:00 AM


Gunshots were reported on the 700 block of West Belmont Avenue, around 4 a.m.

Upon their arrival, officers discovered that what the 911 callers actually heard, was the sound of a car window being broken.

The car, which was located in an alley, was set upon by ten male blacks. Some of them were carrying poles or bats, said an eyewitness.

After smashing the car's window, the offenders fled the scene in a gray van.

The vandals were last seen going northbound on Halsted Street from Belmont.
