From NBC5 Chicago:
Uptown Up in Arms Over "Near Riot-Like" Activity
Shots reportedly fired Thursday night
By BJ LUTZ
Increased police patrols are promised in the area around Leland and Sheridan in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood after "near riot-like" activity in the streets the past few nights.
Video from the area appears to show about a dozen people running back and forth in the street, breaking bottles and yelling. One NBCChicago.com visitor wrote of "near riot-like gang fighting," and said that shots were fired Thursday night at about 10:30.
On the Web site UptownUpdate.com, commenters express fear and anger over the activity.
"This is by no means an isolated incident," reads a comment by Michael. "This same exact scene played out multiple times this Spring as well."
