A Double Double
- Five people have been killed and another five wounded in weekend gun violence in Chicago — including two separate double-homicide shootings that occurred about 12 hours apart.
The latest shooting was a double-homicide on the West Side around 4 p.m. Saturday. Officers, called to the 4200 block of West Congress Parkway in West Garfield Park, found a teenage boy and a man in his 30s dead in the street with bullet wounds to the head.
Earlier, two men were killed and another was wounded when a masked gunman walked up to them outside a Bridgeport neighborhood hamburger stand early Saturday and unleashed a barrage of bullets. The shooting outside Kevin’s Hamburger Heaven, in the 500 block of West Pershing Road, was the second time in four months that someone has been killed outside an all-night restaurant in Bridgeport.
Sounds like someone needs to ban all-night restaurants.
- Earlier Saturday, a man was fatally shot and another was wounded while sitting in a vehicle on the West Side. It happened around 2:15 a.m. Saturday in the 1100 block of South Mozart Street in Lawndale. Ronnie Chambers, 34, was shot in the head and died at the scene, according to police and the medical examiner’s office.
So three in 011 and two in 009? That puts us right around 36 or 37 for the year. We aren't sure if you have to add in the one on the highway that the State is handling and the other one on the college campus that the State may have pulled a number for. We might be over 40 depending on how it's all added up.
