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.

    Unidentified thugs shot a 13-year-old boy who was walking his dog Sunday night on the West Side.
