3 shot, 1 stabbed outside 4 a.m. bar in Gladstone Park


Three men were shot and one was stabbed during an altercation at about 4 a.m. Sunday, May 21, outside of the Zachary’s for Cocktails tavern 5368 N. Milwaukee Ave., according to Chicago police.

All of the men were transported to area hospitals and are in serious condition, police said. Details of the altercation were not clear, as detectives were waiting for clearance from medical staff before they could start talking to the injured men, police said.

Zachary’s is one of the last liquor establishments on the Far Northwest Side to have a 4 a.m. license, which is extended to 5 a.m. on Saturday nights. The Gladstone Park commercial district used to have another 4 a.m. tavern, Lasko’s at 5525 N. Milwaukee Ave., but it closed several years ago.

Nearly all area bars are required to close by 2 a.m. (3 a.m. Saturday nights).
