Not good (via Chicago Tribune):
A 45-year-old man was shot to death in the South Loop neighborhood Sunday morning.
Police said witnesses heard an argument before gunfire, and police found the man in an alley in the 1800 block of South Michigan Avenue with a gunshot wound to his head.
The fatal shooting took place in an alley between two, low-rise apartment buildings on 18th Street, between Michigan Avenue and Indiana Avenue. Police cruisers and yellow police tape roped off the scene, and red tape was strung around a smaller area about halfway down the alley.
If that's not enough, there have been a wave of daytime robberies smattered around the sloop (via DNAinfo):
Pedestrians are getting robbed at gunpoint during the day in the South Loop, police said.
In the crimes, a man hops out of a black sedan and shows a handgun before robbing his victims, police said.
The suspect is described as a 5'7"-5'9" black man between 20 and 35 years old with short hair, "medium" complexion and a gold chain necklace. His car's license plate ends in 2091, police said.
