The shooting in the 3200 block of West Congress Parkway punctuated 19 hours of gun violence Monday through Tuesday morning that saw 29 people shot across Chicago, three of them fatally — a toll usually associated with whole weekends in the city.
Among the fatal shootings was a 21-year-old man who was hit in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side around 10:45 p.m., police said.
The man was walking in the 5600 block of South May Street when someone in a passing black sedan fired shots, striking him in the left side, police said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, said Officer Hector Alfaro, a police spokesman.
Around 9:30 p.m., a 28-year-old man was shot to death and a 21-year-old man was wounded in the 5300 block of West Gladys Avenue in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side, police said.
The 28-year-old was shot several times and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Alfaro said. The 21-year-old was grazed in the left buttocks and walked into Loyola University Medical Center, Alfaro said.
Earlier in the day, an 18-year-old man was discovered inside a vehicle with gunshot wounds to the head and hand in a shooting about 11:55 a.m. in the 6500 block of South Ross Avenue in the Englewood neighborhood. The man was pronounced dead on the scene, police said.
I heard Black Lives Matter is planning a big rally to protest all the violence in Chicago.
Not to take away the significance of the Orlando gay night club shooting by a muslim terrorist.
But 50 people killed in Chicago is a monthly occurrence, with a lot more injured.
And the outcry from liberals?
Oh, they blame the gun, not the person/people/culture and there is no outcry for the innocent people killed, like the babies, toddlers and grade school kids.
Just more liberal clap trap.
