President Morrissey’s Response to the Shooting on Kedvale

This is a Chicago Police patch that is worn on the uniform.

Hello Sauganash Park,

We have had some scary news this past week with a home on Kedvale getting shot up. It’s been a hot discussion across the neighborhood and we empathize with your concerns. I personally have had several text threads going on the subject and live a block away.

It appears to be a targeted and isolated attack on an individual who resides at the address. The event being “isolated” does not make me feel any better, but it does mean we don’t have a turf war or a gang affiliation moving in the area.

We have been in touch with Commander Voulgaris and the Alderman’s office regarding the event. As we learn more or if there is an official statement, we will communicate it. The police are actively working this.

I also know the other concern is a new commander stepping in and having a less than ideal first impression at the community meeting this past week. It was a rough meeting to say the least and I don’t think they were anticipating the crowd. I have heard many complaints that I will pass along.

I can’t solve the crime, but what I can offer is OUR voice. The SPCA executive board will be meeting with the Commander for lunch shortly and we will express YOUR concerns candidly.

This is a scary event that happened in our backyard, but I am always amazed by the community banding together at times like these. This banding together gives me a pride of ownership and a firm belief that we will continue to be the best and one of the safest neighbors in the city.

We are here to help your voice be heard. Please email us at [email protected] with your concerns and we will relay the messages.

Bill Morrissey
SPCA President
