Check that Engine Boys
An alleged gang member was critically injured when he was stabbed after the van he was inside broke down in rival gang territory early Sunday in the Back-of-the-Yards neighborhood on the Southwest Side.
The victim, in his 20s, was traveling back home after attending a party and was inside a van with five other people about 6 a.m. near the intersection of West 43rd Street and South Winchester Avenue when the incident occurred, according to a Deering District police captain.
The driver of the van stopped when a rival gang member was allegedly seen outside and the six got out and allegedly began to beat the person outside. Afterwards, they jumped back into the van to flee but became stranded in “enemy territory” when the transmission failed on the vehicle, according to the captain.
Having one of your home boys stabbed nearly to death because you forgot to have that "Check Engine" light looked at before you got trapped behind enemy lines, maybe outnumbered 20-to-6 at this point? Priceless-less.
