The dead armed robber from a few days ago that we were hoping might be connected to the Frank Castle / Paul Kersey storyline:
A West Town man who was reportedly killed after he shot his friend during a robbery attempt near Goose Island early Sunday died almost exactly three years after he robbed another man while claiming to have a gun in the same area, according to court records.
Police found Adan Delgado, 27, with multiple gunshot wounds and a handgun lying nearby in the 1200 block of West Fry around 4:30 a.m. on December 6. Another man who lives about a block away reportedly told police that his friend, Delgado, shot him in the leg during a robbery attempt moments earlier. The man, 28, said he ran away after Delgado shot him and he then heard more gunfire behind him.
This sounds like a fun one – accomplice gets shot by the guy carrying the heater, who has a hunting ground he likes to hang around, and then the shooter gets whacked by….the accomplice? The victim? The vigilante (which is what we were hoping for)?
And is there a list of unsolved robberies or patterns in this area that might be X-Cleared Closed now?
