Weekly Totals Mount
The numbers are rolling in three at a time:
- Three men were critically wounded in a West Humboldt park neighborhood shooting Friday night on the West Side.
The men — ages 19, 27 and 51 — were outside in the 1400 block of North Kildare about 8 p.m. when two gunmen walked up, started shooting and then ran away, according to Chicago Police.
- A 17-year-old boy and two other teens were shot and wounded in front of a high school Friday afternoon in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood on the Southwest Side, officials said.
The boy suffered two gunshot wounds -- one to the head and one to the torso -- and was taken in serious-to-critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, officials said. Authorities earlier listed his age as 16.
Add in the other school shooting, the 9-year-old, the assorted retaliation shootings, plus the normal everyday mayhem, we're kind of curious to see this weeks totals. And we're curious to see this first week of November compared to the last few Novembers. Hopefully, HeyJackass.com has the final numbers after tonight, because you can't forget Saturday in the totals.
