Alex Underwood and Crystal Flowers remain hospitalized at the K.H.M.H. recovering from gunshot wounds following the shooting at Bismark Club on Sunday morning. Now, Underwood is one of the reputed bosses of the South Side Gang and most recently was part of the gang truce organized by then South Side Regional Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police Chester Williams along with mediators Dianne Finnegan and Nuri Mohammed. Earlier this year on August fourth, at a workshop with various gang leaders, Underwood spoke about the work among rivaling gangs to abandon criminal activity.
