You Know What They Need?
Some kind of passage. A passage that's....safe. Safe for people to walk to and from home:
- Two men were shot, one of them fatally, near a Brighton Park elementary school on the Southwest Side early Tuesday evening, according to police.
An 18-year-old was shot in the arm and back, and a 21-year-old was shot in the face about 5 p.m. in the 4200 block of South Rockwell Street, police said.
Both were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital -- the older man in critical condition and the younger in serious condition. The 21-year-old later died, Chicago police spokeswoman Bari Lemmon said.
Shields Elementary School is on that block.
Good thing school wasn't in session or they'd be reviving that boondoggle in short order.
