Breaking News: Possible Stabbing On Hume At 4th Ave., North Changed To Fist Fight/No Prosecution

I was driving down Hume St. about 20 minutes ago and came across a man with a bloodied face lying in the middle of the street near 4th. The alleged victim got up as I arrived and staggered north down 4th headed toward Garfield. Three black males in a grey-green Dodge Neon (License #SUR 886 or 887) were leaving the scene quickly headed west past me down Hume St. The parking lot of the Shiloh Apartments (Hume and 4th) was filled with onlookers and there were children and staff members from the Morgan Park Community Center (Hume and 4th) watching the events. I returned home quickly and called the police 911 dispatch who told me that police units had been dispatched for a possible stabbing in that vacinity.

07/21/2005 12:30 p.m. Update: The Central Precinct is now reporting that the incident involved a fist fight, not a stabbing, and the victim has refused to prosecute at this time.
