Not too far from Chinatown on 23rd street. Used to love to shop there when in town. It used to be a lower crime rate area because the Chinese did not want tourist dollars to stop flowing.
A Chicago police officer was shot and remains in “critical condition” after a suspect opened fire at Mercy Hospital on Monday, a spokesman for the department said.
