Only two dead, but nearly thirty wounded, in keeping with the HeyJackass.com motto of "More Lead, Less Dead:"
- Two people have been killed and at least 29 others wounded in weekend Chicago shootings on the last weekend of summer.
The weekend’s first homicide took place around 4:10 a.m. Saturday in the city’s West Garfield Park neighborhood, in the same block where three others, including a 12-year-old boy, had been shot late Friday night.
- Just before 7 p.m. Saturday, a 21-year-old man was fatally shot while driving on the city’s Northwest Side.
Police were flagged down in the 3300 block of West Chicago Avenue and discovered a 21-year-old man had been shot in the chest in the 3900 block of West Ferdinand Street. The man was transported to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition but was later pronounced dead.
Does anyone at NBC even look at a map? Northwest side? It's 011....in fact, both homicides were in 011 if we're reading this map correctly. Still, thirty-one shot isn't a bad showing for the last weekend of summer.
