So, this happened last night about two blocks from my new place:
About 11:50 p.m., a 19-year-old man was fatally shot in Uptown on the North Side.
The man was standing in an alleyway in the 4400 block of North Magnolia Avenue when someone inside a dark-colored van fired shots. The teen was shot twice in his side, and the van fled north from the scene, police said.
The man was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
The 19-year-old man had [not] been identified as of early Thursday.
At least that explains all the sirens and police cars.
