Goon Arrested For Stealing Beef Jerky, Breaking Cops' Lamp
Cops charged a 24-year-old Chicago with several misdemeanors after he allegedly ripped out a light fixture in a district lockup where he was being held after stealing two packages of beef jerky. After being arrested for the jerky swipe at a 7-Eleven store in Rogers Park, Wynn tried to kick out the windows of a police car and later ripped out the fixture from the holding cell at the Rogers Park District Station at 6464 N. Clark St.

Boy Shot While Walking Dog
Unidentified thugs shot a 13-year-old boy who was walking his dog Sunday night on the West Side. After noticing a group of five males walk past him, the boy heard shots, and realized he’d been struck in the left leg -- he then ran to his home nearby and was transported to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was treated and released. The dog was unharmed.
