CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Yep. Just after midnight — very, very early on Tuesday — Palatine police were looking for a heckler of the benefactors at a Palatine bar. Durtie Nellies was holding a Charity Concert to benefit two NIU-related funds: the DeKalb-Sycamore Community Memorial Fund and NIU’s February 14 Scholarship Fund.

The DeKalb and Sycamore Chambers, in cooperation with the DeKalb County
Community Foundation, have established a Community Memorial Fund. The
501c3 non-profit corporation fund is collecting donations to be used for a community remembrance.

Northern Illinois University has established a scholarship fund to honor the memory of the students slain in the February 14 tragedy. The February 14 Student Scholarship Fund will receive gifts through the NIU Foundation for the general scholarship fund and work through the NIU Scholarship Committee to distribute scholarships to deserving students in the name of those who lost their lives in the shooting at Cole Hall.

A total of six people, all residents of Illinois, died at the Northern Illinois University (NIU) shooting on February 14, 2008: Gayle Dubowski, 20 — Carol Stream; Catalina Garcia, 20 — Cicero; Julianna Gehant, 32 — Meriden; Steven Kazmierczak, 27 — Champaign (perpetrator); Ryanne Mace, 19 — Carpentersville; Daniel Parmenter, 20 — Elmhurst.

A total of sixteen people were injured at the February 14 NIU shooting: Lauren
Debrauwere — Lake Barrington; Samantha Dehner, 20 — Carol Stream; J.D.
Donohue, 19 — Rolling Meadows; Ryne Erickson — Des Plaines; Brian Karpes,
27 — Rolling Meadows; Patrick Korellis, 22 — Lindenhurst; Jeff Malina —
Glenview; Harold Ng, 21 — Mundelein; Joseph Peterson, 26 — DeKalb (course
instructor); Unnum Rahman, 19 — Plainfield; Maria Ruiz Santana, 19 —
Elgin; Jeremy Walker, 20 — Caledonia; Sherman Yau, 20 — Naperville.

A man wearing all gray with a red hat was walking up to people — pointing his finger like a gun and saying, “Hey, I’m a hit man!”

Nobody was amused.
