Man Shot in Burbank Drive-By

Burbank Police report on an overnight shooting.

A man was shot in Burbank early Friday morning in what police are saying was not a random incident. 

The shooting occurred at 12:25 a.m. on Dec. 7 in the 6700 block of 85th Street, according to the Burbank Police Department.

A 20-year-old man was walking alone when a maroon mini-van drove by and its occupants began to yelled "gang jargon" at him, police said. The man heard shots ring out and realized he had been shot in the leg. 

Police say the van drove away southbound down New Castle from 85th Street. The victim was transported to Advocate Christ Hospital where his injuries were determined not to be life threatening, police said. 

The Burbank Police Department is asking for anyone who heard or witnesses the incident to step forward.

burbank needs to have more police patrol at night. not show up after the fact. its only going to get worse. these guns need to get off the streets. what happen to the times when ppl had problems with each other, they would fight it out, one on one. losers now a days have to hide behind a gun, then run away like a coward.

Am I wrong or are every one of these shootings around 85th and Oak Park? Maybe it's time to run the gang bangers out of town like they did in the old west. I'm not suggesting that police violate the law, but if you put enough pressure and surveillance on these idiots, maybe they'd move back to wherever they came from.

How is that no open or concealed carry gun laws treating you American citizens? Obviously those laws don't apply to criminals duhh. Support our rights!!!

It's time for Burbank to put up cameras on corners know for gang activity. Chicago is running the gang bangers out if their neighborhood so they now found homes in these small suburbans with small police departments. Burbank needs to get ahold of these problem because all the good hard working people will move.

Angelo, You may be unaware of the Arab gangs at Reavis High School, but its students know all too well. Many of my male Muslim students are among the most disrespectful kids I've ever met. Your neighbors have you fooled.

What is rapping????....guess you were home schooled or maybe never went to school with that spelling....there's certain people we can't see at night, unless we make them laugh.....then there teeth glow....get the thugs before I do.....every shooting has been around our schools....put outside cameras on the poles on the corners.....whats so hard about that.....i will man the cameras for free...i will volunteer to catch crooks and bangers since your paid employees can't....

Angelo, I read what you typed, but was it spell check or translation that wasn't working? You lost your credibility...
