...and There Goes 100
- Two men were shot to death early Saturday in the Woodlawn neighborhood on the South Side, bringing the number of homicides in Chicago this year to 101.
Just before 1 a.m., two people in hooded sweatshirts opened fire into a crowd at a party in the 6500-block of South Drexel, hitting a 20-year-old man in the face and torso, and a 37-year-old man in the chest. They died at the scene, according to Chicago police.
Just maintaining the current rate of killings, 600 would be a lock for the year. And that's without taking into consideration the summer killing season rapidly approaching.
