How Could This Happen?
- A 17-year-old man was reportedly shot to death Wednesday night after shaking hands with the gunman on a Near West Side street.
The man was shot in the back after shaking hands with a man, believed to between 18 to 20 years old, in the 1100 block of North Wolcott Avenue about 9:15 p.m. Wednesday, police said.
The gunman is unknown, but the shooting is possibly gang-related, police said.
Anyone have the rate of homicides that show before and after? Any change? Or was the gun turn-in just another illusion of attacking the problem?
