    My sister-in-law called and said the Loyola campus is on lock down because of a robbery gone-bad nearby. Anybody hear anything? I can't find info on any news outlets. :confused:

    I hadn't heard anything about it. :( You said downtown... do they have something over by the water tower, or do you mean their campus up by Loyola & Sheridan?

    Sorry, typed the stuff pretty fast. This is near their new dorm building, I believe off State. But I haven't been down there in a while, and I don't remember. :rolleyes: *d'oh*

    State and Pearson.

    Downtown shooting

    Yes, its true. There was a bank robbery and the suspect was chased and shot by police in front of the Lewis Towers building . The campus is not on lock down. Pearson street is blocked off from Rush St. to Little Michigan for investigation.

    Pearson and Rush. Looks like some buildings were put on lockdown around the area to prevent people from going out.

    Here is a link

    Unfortunately, a shooting in Chicago is not huge news, and may not be widely covered in the news.

    It's a rare occurrence in downtown though. It usually happens on the west or south side.

    Armed robbery with a police chase would make the news in most of Chicago... but particularly up there....

    Yeah, that's pretty crazy. Even when I first moved here in '92, anything like that would be huge news in that part of town.

    I would like to know if the robbery suspect did us all the favor of dying.

    More people die in Chicago than in the Iraq war.

    BamaDen should fit right in.

    :D
