Shooting on South Ellis  シカゴ大学

今日、シカゴ大学の学生が殺人に合いました。これとほぼ同じ時間帯に、Hyde parkでは発砲事件と強盗が起きています。今日のキャンパスにはテレビ局が来たり、帰り時刻のバスが異常に混んでいたりでものものしい雰囲気でした。シカゴ大学キャンパスにのみ事件が起こっているのか、ホームレスなどが増えてシカゴ全体の治安が悪化しているのか分かりません。事件の早期解決を祈ります。


It is with the greatest possible sadness that I write to inform you of the tragic killing of one of our graduate students last night. Amadou Cisse, an international student completing his Ph.D. degree in chemistry, was shot and killed at 1:26 a.m. in the street near 6120 S. Ellis Ave. We are saddened and outraged by this terrible event, and our hearts go out to the student’s family, friends, colleagues and neighbors.

Both University of Chicago and Chicago Police Department officers responded immediately to the shooting, and are working together to actively investigate this crime. Police are increasing patrols in and around campus. In addition to these immediate measures, we will work intensively with the Chicago Police Department to evaluate what additional steps we will take to ensure the safety of our community going forward.

In addition to the fatal shooting, there were two other incidents on or near campus last night. At 12:33 a.m. at 6045 Woodlawn, a man was chased by an individual who fired a shot in his direction. At 1:15 a.m., two women were robbed at 924 E. 57th St. by an individual who said he had a weapon. Police are investigating whether or not these incidents are related. Anyone who might have information related to any of these incidents should call the Chicago Police Department’s Area 2 Violent Crimes at 312-747-8272.
