A man was hit south of the Chinatown stop; the CTA has an uninformative service delay. News should be breaking soon.

...ok, it's more informative now. Service is down between Grand and 47th.

...according to Abby Ryan on WBourgoisie (h/t Mo) says the Dan Ryan is delayed because of activity on the tracks, though no news on the train itself. Some of us still take the train, btw.

...ABC7 reports 1) it was fatal 2) it was at 27th, i.e. not at a stop. 

...hey, did you know that WLS used to be WENR-TV? Say it out loud, it's funny.

...he was fleeing a robbery?

...a knifepoint robbery no less.
