LOGAN SQUARE — Ald. Daniel La Spata (1st) is holding a police roll call Friday night at Campbell Avenue and Cortland Street, the site of a Wednesday shooting.
Just before 11:45 p.m. Wednesday, officers responded to calls of shots fired in the 1900 block of North Campbell Avenue, according to Chicago police spokesman Officer Anthony Spicuzza.
Spicuzza said officers found four spent shell casings on the scene, but could not find any victims. An investigation is ongoing, he said.
La Spata and the officers from the Shakespeare (14th) Police District will gather at the site of the shooting at 6 p.m. Friday. Neighbors are encouraged to join.
“The roll call is a response to show neighborhood presence and community attention to the incident,” La Spata’s community development director Allison Carvalho said in an email.
Outdoor roll calls are a common tactic used by police to boost their visibility after ugly incidents and build new relationships in the process.
