CHICAGO (CBS) — An Illinois state lawmaker says repeated rolling shootouts on local roadways have turned his district in Albany Park into the Wild, Wild West.

CBS 2 Political Investigator Dana Kozlov did some digging and found violence is a growing concern in the area.

“They’re shooting at any time of the day,” said state Rep. Jaime Andrade (D-Chicago).

Andrade said a recent shootout between two cars in Albany Park is a recent example of crime in the Albany Park (17th) Police District – which is bounded by Devon Avenue on the north, Belmont Avenue on the south, the North Branch of the Chicago River and the North Shore Channel on the east, and Cicero Avenue on the west.
