Does This Count?

  • A Chicago man has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with a fatal shooting in Hyde Park Friday night.

    Police say Paris Walker-Rush, 25, fatally shot another man inside of an apartment in the 5200 block of South Cornell shortly after 9 p.m. Walker-Rush was arrested at the scene without incident and is now facing felony charges for involuntary manslaughter and unlawful use of weapon.

    Walker-Rush was ordered held on $900,000 bond in court Saturday.
He pointed the gun (which he isn't supposed to have as a convicted felon) at his buddy's head, and pulled the trigger (which makes us think the "involuntary" part is a stretching of the truth).

Actually, the question is probably, "How will they count it?" We're betting "death investigation."

Maybe he was doing the city a favor when he pulled the trigger?

Hyphenated 'Rush'? Men don't usually hyphenate unless it's to their advantage. Is he related to some clouted Rush?

SCC, we believe it should count. Reckless handling of a firearm causing someone's death-yes. Loosing control of an automobile in a rain storm causing someone's death-No.

Work in Area North and can tell you nothing is ever classified "Death Investigation". That's not a classification. The area conducts a Death Investigation initially if the cause is unknown. Classifications are determined after the autopsy. Homicide, Suicide, Accidental etc. If this guy was charged with Involuntray Manslaughter then there had to be witnesses, physical evidence, cell phone video, security video or other things to justify that charge. The fact he is a felon does not turn an accident into a first degree murder. The Area South dets are not hiding anything. The state placed the charge not he dets. People fucking around with guns kill their brothers, cousins, friends. It's not rare. It also does not count as a murder for yearly total since it's now Involuntary Manslaughter. Complain to the FBI if you think it should, they set the standards.

How would Chicago classify this one? Suicide?

St. Louis (CNN) -- A woman appears to have accidentally fatally shot herself in the head with a gun bought to prepare for possible Ferguson-related unrest, according to sources briefed on the police investigation.

The shooting occurred Friday night in downtown St. Louis, the city's Metropolitan Police Department said, in an area dominated by vacant lots beside a football stadium.

The female victim, identified in a police report as Becca Campbell, 26, was a passenger in a car involved in an auto accident. Her 33-year-old boyfriend was driving, the sources told CNN.

The boyfriend, who wasn't identified, told police that the couple had bought a gun because of fears of unrest related to the pending grand jury decision on the shooting of Michael Brown, the sources said.

He told investigators that as they drove late Friday night, the victim waved a gun, jokingly saying the couple were ready for Ferguson, the sources said.

He ducked to get out of the way of the gun and accidentally rear-ended another car. He said the accident caused the gun to go off and she was struck by a bullet in the head, the sources said.

The victim was rushed to a hospital but died.

The investigation is continuing because police want to be sure the story as told by the boyfriend is correct, the sources said. Police are awaiting gun trace results, as part of the ongoing investigation.

It will be reclassified 0141 Homicide-Involuntary Manslaughter but at the end of the year totals the only UCR code that gets run or counts is 0110

If the victim asked him to shoot him would it count as a SUICIDE?

++++ Paris D. Walker-Rush, 25, is facing charges of involuntary manslaughter and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon. ...officers found 24-year-old David Kennedy ... with a gunshot wound to the head ... A police source said the men were playing with the gun... ++++

Ahhhh, they were only *playing* with the gun. That's different then, the shooting could of happened to anyone. Heck, 'Back In The Day', we almost lost a few of the guys from the old 'hood when we would *play* with our loaded guns.

So hopefully the judge will go easy on Paris -- it being an accident and all, like say a nice stern chat about: 'No More Horseplay With Guns, Paris. Next time you'll be grounded!'

That should do the trick.
