    It’s been geeting worse and worse in that neighborhood. The police need to crack down just like Hodgkins did on those Latin Kings punks.

    This happened in an area between the N/S freight train line and East Avenue that is a neighborhood within LaGrange. I agree that the police need to give it some additional attention to keep it safer.

    the Lagrange Park Police are useless. I could see this beautiful town going to s*** because of the incompetent police department. My apartment was burglarized almost a year ago and they did absolutely nothing. There was no investigation not even a follow up phone call. Everything in my apartment was stolen. TVs, money, jewelry, all of my prescription drugs everything and I knew exactly who did it. All the LaGrange Park Police are good for are parking on the side of the road and catching speeders. will never live in that town again. They are lazy, incompetent in nothing but a joke. Let’s see how they handle a matter like this.

      Wow, Times have change. I guess the whole World had also changed. The neighborhood of the shooting was very safe place until recently. We still own my parents home there. Regarding Lagrange Park, it too was safe. I lived there from 1991-94. One year LP was voted the safest Chicago suburb. Drugs and the associated violence is ruining Society. I read that Naperville is
      now the heroin center of the western suburbs. Here average home price is $600k and l guess the folks are considered affluent.
