Welcome to the brand-new morning article #afterdark, a roundup of crime (and more) happenings from around Chicago overnight.

As the temperatures raised overnight in Chicago, so did the crime. It was a busy night on the city’s South and West sides, with a massive fire in Canaryville, a 6-year-old boy fatally struck by a vehicle in the same neighborhood and a home invasion on the Far South Side.
