What a Nice Night
Warm weather really gets the blood flowing - in the streets that is:
- Six men have been wounded tonight and this afternoon in two separate shootings in the Englewood and Gresham neighborhoods on the South Side.
Most recently, at 8 p.m. in the 7900 block of South Peoria Street in the city's Gresham neighborhood, someone shot two men, according to police News Affairs [...].
A 23-year-old was shot in the leg and a 20-year-old was shot in the abdomen, said O'Brien.
Their conditions and further details were not available immediately.
Earllier in the Englewood neighborhood, four men were standing in the middle of the 5700 block of South Lowe Avenue in front of a residence when a lone gunman confronted them on foot and fired numerous rounds from a semi-automatic handgun hitting all four, police said.
Four-for-four in the second shooting is pretty good though. Bad aim is keeping the count low along with better medical care. Anyone know if shootings are keeping pace with 2012 or 2011?
