Follow Up on Friday Night's Crime Alert

January 23, 2016

Loyola Community,

Thank you for your attention to last night’s crime alert and for everyone who has followed up regarding the well being of the student who was injured in the incident near 6701 N. Clark. The student continues to recover from the injuries she sustained.

Since last night’s alert was issued, the Chicago Police Department has released additional information on the case. They believe the student was an unintended target and that shots were fired from a passing vehicle. Witnesses report seeing a gray-colored Nissan Altima flee the scene of the shooting. No information on offender descriptions has been provided at this time.

Campus Safety will continue working closely with the Chicago Police Department on the investigation. If you know of any leads, please call Chicago police via 9-1-1 or Campus Safety at 773.508.6039.

Campus Transportation Update
We are working with MV Transportation to increase 8-RIDE this weekend. Additional vans are being put into service this evening, and we will closely monitor call volume and add additional support, as needed, to respond to requests for service.

Student Development Availability
Wellness Center, Campus Ministry, and other Student Development personnel are available to anyone who would like to talk about this incident or other concerns. Please do not hesitate to reach out to a staff or faculty member if you are in need of services of any kind.

Please keep this student, and her family, in your thoughts and prayers.

Vice President for Student Development
