SWAT teams and other police personnel responded the late evening of March 30 and early morning of March 31 after a Lake View man threatened to harm himself in his apartment, according to multiple reports.
Much of the area around the Halsted Street Boystown strip, from Roscoe to Cornelia, was shut down, according to CWB Chicago. Police arrived at about 11:40 p.m. after the man threatened suicide by firearm in his home in the 800 block of Newport Avenue. The incident was ultimately resolved at about 2:40 a.m. and the man was taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital for evaluation. No injuries were reported.
At one point, a brawl broke out amongst 20 persons in the area but police dispersed the crowd.
