This Chiraq: 13 shot at beginning of weekend; 13 shot at memorial party last night


from Fellowship Of The Minds:

When I scheduled this post it was to report that 13 people were shot (4 fatally) in a 24-hour period at the beginning of the weekend. Then I wakeup this morning to this headline“Chicago memorial party turns ‘chaotic’ as mass shooting wounds 13 on South Side.”

Apparently last night’s shooting at this memorial party “stemmed from a dispute inside the home.”

The Chicago Tribune reports that police are questioning 2 they say were ‘shooting randomly at people’ as they were leaving. Read their story here.

Saturday night story from MyFoxChicagoThirteen people have been shot, four of them fatally, across Chicago since Friday evening.

The most recent fatal shooting happened Saturday in Chicago Lawn on the Southwest Side. A 41-year-old man was on the corner about 2:20 p.m. in the 6000 block of South Fairfield Avenue when someone walked up and fired shots at him, Chicago police said. The man was struck in the back and abdomen and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where he was pronounced dead.

The shooter ran off east on 60th Street, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not provided details about the death.

A man was shot to death Saturday morning at a home in Rogers Park on the North Side. The man, 55, was inside a residence about 4:35 a.m. in the 1600 block of West Morse Avenue when a male suspect kicked in the door and opened fire, Chicago police said. The man was shot in the face and pronounced dead on the scene.
