Murder at Berwyn & Winthrop

Last night Berwyn was shut down between Broadway and Winthrop, apparently due to a stabbing murder. This was around 7pm. When we asked a police officer what happened he responded “don’t worry about it.” Thanks to to Uptown Update readers who shared the following:

“I was driving home to my place at Berwyn/Kenmore and saw someone lying in the middle of the street outside the shoe shop/Pause on Berwyn– when I was there there was just a CTA vehicle near the man with a group gathered. I went back out to see what was going on and
apparently there was a stabbing–according to the people I spoke to it took CPD 15 minutes to show up. I don’t know more than this but it’s scary, and ther’es a big group outside and more sirens.”

“I walked into the Jewel on Berwyn at just before 7 tonight and came out to find a fire truck and a ton of people standing around at the corner of Berwyn and Winthrop at around 7:10 tonight. There was a man lying in the street who looked seriously injured and I heard folks mention a stabbing. Does anyone know any details?”
