- Students leaving McNair Elementary School in the South Austin neighborhood carried science projects and walked hand-in-hand with staff members who ushered them out a side entrance to waiting parents and buses on Thursday after a Chicago Public Schools' employee was killed outside the school’s main entrance.
The school was locked down and parents received calls informing them of the shooting and that nobody would be allowed in or out of the school until dismissal at 2:30 p.m.
- A man was found fatally shot in the North Lawndale neighborhood Wednesday night, and a video circulating online appears to show the moments just before and after he was shot.
On the video, he is drinking from a plastic bottle and looking around. He sees a car drive by once, then return.
The video clearly contains the sound of gunshots. The camera falls to the ground, then is raised again to catch a fleeting image of the car driving away. It falls to the ground again, coming to rest in what looks like bloody grass. The screen goes black, though people can be heard in the background screaming and calling for an ambulance.
And what else were they screaming?
- "Someone call the police!"
