This was the third public safety meeting in the area this week, and while neighbors threw more than 100 questions at officials, yet another man was killed and a police commander had to leave the meeting to respond. At 6:20 p.m., a man was shot dead in the 3600 block of West Lawrence Avenue, police said. Tuesday night, five people were shot one block over.
