Police were monitoring cameras in the area of 45th and Wood streets because of gunfire there about 11 p.m. Sunday and saw two women enter a house about 2:15 a.m. - one carrying a backpack and the other a bag - and leave with a stroller about five minutes later.
- Those officers asked officers on the street to
"conduct an investigatory stop," which they did in the 4500
block of South Hermitage Avenue, about a block from where the women were
After asking if there were any weapons in the stroller, which was covered, one of the women said yes. Inside, officers found a Mossberg Model 472 30-30 rifle with two rounds and a spent shell casing wrapped in blankets. Police also found a Smith and Wesson 9mm with 15 live rounds, an extra magazine (loaded with 15 live rounds), an extra magazine and a box of 9mm ammunition in a diaper bag that was on the stroller's seat.
- And when the gangs start targeting other gang bangers pushing strollers, but manage to kill a bunch of infants, we're sure the "community" will be upset and wonder why the police didn't do anything.
