Went past there at 9:00PM.
The cops had Ashland closed off from Rogers to Howard, with crime scene tape in an area about 100 feet south of Howard to maybe 100 feet south of that & from one side of Ashland to the other.
They also had a dark SUV stopped in front of Walgreen's on Rogers west of Clark with all the passengers, who were black males, spread out on the side of their SUV.
