South-Side Mass Murder Claims Four, Results in Police Anti-Violence Mission


Yesterday, a small community restaurant on Chicago's south side, called, "Nadia's Fish & Chicken", located at 75th & Coles, became the scene of a cold-blooded mass-murder. The victims were Dillon Jackson, 20, his brother, Raheem Jackson, 19, Emmanuel Stokes, 28, and Edwin Davis, 32. Each victims was shot to death by an offender who brandished a gun. What no one seems to have are physical descriptions of the offender / offenders. However, police detectives say they know, and cannot say anything because it would compromise their investigation.

One of Chicago's more popular twitter users, known only as "Chicago_Scanner", caught it all via the Chicago Police radio zone assigned to the district of occurrence as it happened. 


Shortly after the mass-shooting, Peter Nickeas, a reporter for the Chicago Tribune, sent out a series of tweets live from the scene.

According to police, yesterday's shooting was in retaliation for the shooting of a 37-year-old man in the 7900 block of South Phillips Avenue about 11:15 p.m. Wednesday. Nickeas, who wrote extensively on yesterday's mass-shooting, along with reporter Deanese Williams-Harris at 75th & Coles, said "the scene extended half a block out from each direction of the restaurant." Nickeas also said, "Three ambulances arrived in minutes but left almost as quickly because the first three people they found were all pronounced dead at the scene."

Today, Mayor Rahm Emanuel reacted to the mass-shooting, according to DNA Info Chicago, saying, "Emanuel said he had been briefed Friday morning by the Chicago Police Department's command staff about progress made in the investigation into the crimes." The family of the two brothers killed said they did not know the other two victims, who were found inside the restaurant.

ABC 7 Chicago quoted Willamae Jackson, an aunt of the victim(s) as saying, "
"It's two people in the restaurant still in there dead. He went in there and shot them two. After he killed them two, he came out and shot my two nephews, and killed my two nephews." Although the Tribune's Peter Nickeas quoted a police source in regards to the motive of the shooting, ABC 7 reported that the motive was "unclear". WGN News Chicago said, "Several people who work closely with the South Shore community believe this afternoon shooting that left four dead was in retaliation for the woman’s death." That statement was in reference to the murder of Patrice Calvin in an apartment located at 75th & Luella.

Kelly Bauer at DNA Info Chicago reports that there had been no fatal shootings in the neighborhood this March until Thursday, yet the burst of murders led South Shore to end the month with more fatal shootings than any other neighborhood.

Ms. Calvin was found on the third floor of the apartment where police responded after neighbors called around 9PM after neighbors reported hearing gunshots. Calvin's father said he spoke with his daughter two days ago. He said his son went in on Thursday to check on her and found her dead. "Police got the call. Neighbors called them. They came and knocked on the door. Why didn't you open the door? My daughter could have been in there bleeding. She could have still been alive," - Aaron Calvin, Patrice Calvin's Father.

Mass Shooting at 75th & Coles Becomes a Joint Local, State, and Federal Investigation

As the Chicago Tribune's Peter Nickeas surveyed the scene at 75th & Coles; capturing photos, videos, and talking to whomever would speak with him, the ATF arrived. An agency spokesman confirmed the ATF is assisting Chicago Police in the investigation.

By later in the evening, the ATF may have brought a trained dog out to the scene at 75th & Coles, per a tweet by Peter Nickeas in which a video Nickeas took shows them with a dog. ATF is a law enforcement agency in the United States’ Department of Justice that protects our communities from violent criminals, criminal organizations, the illegal use and trafficking of firearms, the illegal use and storage of explosives, acts of arson and bombings, acts of terrorism, and the illegal diversion of alcohol and tobacco products.

By late last evening, Chicago Police Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted this out to the public:

Chicago Police Anti-Violence Mission 


So Chicago-One went out to this press conference to see what the story was.

Chicago - One staff reporter & photographer @_3NFORC3R_ was at that press conference today, and observed some altercations. Noted Chicago activist, Lamon Reccord, was present on-scene today asking questions, and he received no answers. As the Chicago-One reporter and photographer look around the immediate area of today's CPD Press Conference, this truck was spotted with crosses in the rear bed. 

Chicago-One also spotted CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson meeting with a small contingent of people, including a Commander at the CPD Command Van.

"As a Chicagoan I'm angry and sickened, and you have my promise that CPD will utilize the full weight of our resources to go after the people responsible for yesterday's incidents," - CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson said at today's afternoon press conference (31 March 2017)

 What We Know About The Victims
 

Each victim in this multiple shooting had a criminal history with the Chicago Police Department. Dillon and Raheam Jackson appeared to have shared a Facebook page under Dillon's name.

On that page, which is public, are many photos, some of those photos show the presence of either brother holding a gun. Here's a few examples of the photos from that Facebook account.


Edwin Davis had a long arrest history with the Chicago Police Department that started on April 4th, 2014 at 8:58PM. His last arrest was on July 1st, 2016 at 4:54PM as the result of the issuance of a warrant. 

Emmanuel Stokes had a Facebook account, and a short arrest history with the Chicago Police Department as well. 


  
Police increased patrols tonight. Police Superintendent Johnson said "we know these were not random acts of violence" residents of the area say over the last two years, violence has slowly but steadily increased.  

UPDATE: April 02, 2017 4:20PM - The popular Chicago north side news organization, Crime in Wrigleyville & Boystown (CWB) has been informed as of yesterday that the SUV wanted in connection with two of the murders in this piece has been found & recovered by the Chicago Police Dept.

Morning Report - Weather, Traffic, Transit

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Chicago/Romeoville, IL
618 AM CDT Thu Mar 30 2017

.SHORT TERM...
320 AM CDT

Through tonight...

Main forecast concerns/challenges will remain with continued
shower and thunderstorm chances this morning through early this
evening, with strong to severe storms still appearing highly
probable this afternoon thru early evening south of I-80. Although
the highest threat for severe weather will be for areas southeast
of a Pontiac to Kankakee to Valparaiso IN line, can`t rule out
isolated stronger storms further to the north across the Chicago
metro area.

Large upper level system continues to slowly progress east
through the central Plains at this time. With this in place,
continued stream of shortwave energy is lifting northeast over the
region. This support along with strong/focused isentropic ascent
over northern Illinois has allowed the scattered showers to become
more widespread early this morning. Instability has already
worked its way north across the area with MUCAPE in upwards of 500
J/KG already situated over the southern portions of the CWA. This
has allowed scattered thunderstorms to occur over much of the
CWA. With this continued forcing and instability in place, expect
the more widespread nature of this precip and thunder chances to
continue through much of early this morning. Focused ascent then
lifts north closer to mid morning, however, given large scale lift
still present, most locations will likely still observe isolated
to scattered showers. Thunder threat may also lower for the time
being but instability remains in place so can`t still rule out
isolated thunder. As PWAT axis of an inch or more continues to
slide overhead, periods of heavy rainfall will remain a
possibility anytime this morning. Don`t anticipate any widespread
severe weather through anytime this morning, but with instability
likely to continue to increase and with high potential for
stronger forcing in place, can`t rule out an isolated stronger
storm and small hail.

Any lull with any precip looks to be short lived later this
morning, as additional upstream energy along with lifting surface
reflection and boundary support continued precip development to
lift north. This should bring another period of showers and
thunderstorms to much of northern Illinois and northwest Indiana
by late morning into midday. By early afternoon, guidance
indicating a substantial increase in instability over the area,
with instability axis situated from east central Illinois and
northwest Indiana up into the southern part of the lake. Its
during the early to mid afternoon time frame that I think hail
could be possible across the eastern two thirds of the CWA, mainly
areas east/southeast of a Peru to Chicago line. Confidence to the
extent of this hail is lower, but guidance indicating the
possibility for very steep mid level lapse rates to be in place
during this time and think the threat of hail remains. Any surface
based instability should still be lacking, so a wind threat at
this time would be low to nonexistent. However, any storms will
continue to have a chance to produce heavy rainfall.

As we move forward into the mid to late afternoon time frame, 21-
01Z, do think an increased threat for severe weather will occur.
At this time, this threat appears to be for areas southeast of a
Pontiac to Kankakee to Valparaiso IN line. During this time
surface low and boundary really lift north into the southern
portions of the CWA. Guidance indicating the possibility for any
capping inversion to erode, and surface/ML instability to increase
for these areas. This will present a damaging wind threat along
with a hail threat for any storms during this time. As renewed
forcing arrives over the region with the upper level low finally
swinging through, should see scattered storms fire up across
central Illinois. Steering flow will be to the east northeast,
with these storms possibly getting into this area anytime around
21z or there after. Guidance is still varying to the northern
extent of the strongest development, with the higher threat of
more widespread severe still just to the south of the CWA.
However, with this area getting into the warm sector, surface
based instability present, and with bulk shear averaging out
around 35-45 KT, still think there is a threat for a period of
more organized development this afternoon into the early evening.
Once again, hail and damaging winds are the main threats. Some
uncertainty with the mode of convection though, but with the
expected bulk shear, cannot rule out the potential for some
isolated supercellular structures. If this scenario were to occur,
an isolated tornado threat could briefly present itself. Will
continue to monitor this potential, as well as the potential for a
slightly northward shift to the threat area this afternoon. Any
threat of severe weather should come down by early this evening.
