Church Isn't Safe Either
But seeing how every other building in that part of town is a "church," this isn't surprising:
- As the pastor and several other members of the One Way M.B. Church in the city's North Lawndale neighborhood were enjoying lunch Sunday afternoon, they were interrupted when shots rang out on the other side of the small brick building.
Outside of the church, a 28-year-old man lay critically injured on the sidewalk in the 4100 block of West 16th Street on the West Side, one of at least three victims of shootings and a stabbing on the South and West sides of the city. The man later died, according to police.
Maybe more churches would slow down the bloodshed? It'd give everyone something solid to hide behind at least.
