Police checking lakefront high-rise windows struck by ‘projectiles’


Chicago Police alerted residents of a lakefront high-rise that on three separate occasions someone had “discharged projectiles” at the building, damaging several windows.

The building, in the 100 block of North Harbor Drive, was damaged on at 5:30 a.m. April 20, 9:45 p.m. April 27, 11:30 p.m. April 28.

The damaged windows are in the pool area, which is on a lower floor of the building and overlooks Lake Shore Drive.

No one was injured, but the pool is closed until further notice, said Joyce Gallagher, president of the board of directors of the building’s condo association. The association is looking into installing film on the windows to prevent them from shattering if they are struck again, she said.

Gallagher praised police officers for their attention to the matter. Police could not be sure what struck the windows, she said, but they said it might have been a pellet gun.

Police asked anyone with information to contact detectives at (312) 747-8380.
