CHICAGO — Sometime before 2 a.m. Friday, Chicago police said an insurance office in Rogers Park was broken into.

Someone who called police about the incident told them he fired his gun at someone attempting to break into the office near Winchester and Howard Street, according to police radio traffic.

It’s not clear if the man had a valid concealed carry license, but according to police, he was working late when someone took the door off its hinges and went inside.

Flower’s Hair Salon is a few doors down from where the burglary took place. While Blossom is thankful in her four years of business she’s never dealt with any crime, she said she isn’t letting her guard down.

“All of this going on is really shocking to me,” Blossom, the owner of the hair salon, said. “I have the cameras installed so when my customers come in and it can pick who comes in and who comes out. If anything goes wrong then at least the police can take the camera.”

As if the break-in overnight wasn’t bad enough, at least 19 cars on Howard Street were also found vandalized earlier this week in Rogers Park.

Blossom hopes these incidents reflect negatively on her neighborhood and believes having police come around will go a long way.

“I just want a little more police presence in the area that would feel more safe, more protected,” Blossom said.
