Southwest Side shooting is a startling, terrible tragedy

Statement from Alderman Mark A. Borkowski March 7, 2016

Like many of my neighbors, I was taken aback by news of a vicious attack that left three people dead last night in a quiet neighborhood on S. 92nd Street. I feel deeply for the family members of the victims, and I offer to their families my sincere condolences.

This is a terrible tragedy, but it’s also quite an aberration for this neighborhood. The area is rarely the scene of violent incidents, and the neighborhood is still a very safe place.

It’s important to note that this is an isolated incident for the Southwest Side. Police have the suspect in custody, and they assure me that there was never any danger to the general public.
