The most recent fatal shootings occurred happened within minutes and blocks of each other Sunday evening in the South Austin neighborhood on the West Side, police said.
About 7:10 p.m., shots rang out in the 4900 block of West Lake and responding officers found a 53-year-old man on the street with gunshot wounds to the back, police said.
He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he later died, said police, who added that the shooting may have been gang-related.
At 7:13 p.m., a 27-year-old man was on a sidewalk in the 100 block of North Cicero when several people walked up to him and opened fire, police said.
The victim–who has documented gang ties–was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he later died, according to police.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office could not immediately confirm either of those fatalities.
Earlier Sunday afternoon, a 25-year-old man was shot dead in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.
Meanwhile, there have been no protests or riots becayuse of the killings and shootings.
And President Obama, the one person who could actually do something about the killings and shootings by speaking up, just stays quiet as the killings and shooting numbers pile up.
Why does Obama hate Chicago and the mostly poor people who are being victimized.
