CHICAGO — Leaders from three West Side gangs allegedly met last week to discuss plans to shoot members of the Chicago Police Department in response to the fatal police shooting of Paul O’Neal, the Chicago Sun Times reports.

According to an alert issued to department members, the meeting took place Thursday between higher-ups from the Vice Lords, Black Disciples, and Four Corner Hustlers. 

The Four Corner Hustlers “provided guns” and have “a sniper in place,” according to the alert. 

Police sources told the Sun Times that department members have been advised to “limit interactions and visibility.”

The alleged meeting between the gangs comes in response to the July 28 shooting of 18-year-old O’Neal. The release of body cam footage capturing parts of the incident sparked protests over the weekend.
