Oak Park, Berwyn police to confer on Memorial Day shooting

The shooting on Roosevelt Road at Cuyler Avenue put renewed focus on Mike’s Place, a bar in Berwyn on the doorstep of Oak Park. The shooting, which occurred just after midnight on Memorial Day, a holiday federally designated to mourn fallen US soldiers, stemmed from an altercation that occurred before the involved parties hopped into their vehicles, firearms at the ready.

In the aftermath, the Berwyn Police Department and the Oak Park Police Department are putting heads together to prevent further instances of gunfire at Mike’s Place, already a sore spot for neighbors for its loud music and its patrons’ parking habits.

“We’re just trying to collaborate so we can eliminate any other incidents between the two police departments,” said Oak Park Interim Police Chief Shatonya Johnson.
