La Movida

All you Elgin fans, there was a murder at La Movida in the wee hours Sunday morning. I've waited all day for the details, but they haven't released them. My guess is the cops are still spinning the story to avoid implicating the Hispanic population.

La Movida is a Latino dance club. It is a hopping place most week-ends with some security on hand. This particular event was a hall rental and the victim looks like he's African-American, so maybe the suspect isn't Latino. We'll see.

The bits and pieces of the story are that a guy shot the victim, security wrestled the gun from the perp, he then took off on foot.

But...he got hit by a car while trying to cross Route 31. His injuries are not life-threatening but they did stop him in his tracks.

Moral to the story: Thou shalt not kill AND look both ways before crossing the street.

So, here we are 36 hours later and the police haven't given his name because they haven't been able to talk to him. I say they are stalling.

Stay tuned.

  1. Dion Spears is the man in the hospital. He is in a coma. He has been charged with possesion and weapons charges but not the murder itself. At least not at this time.
