Teen killed in Chicago shooting spree that injured 9 others

One dead and nine injured in two shootings in the North Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago on Wednesday evening, according to ABC7 Chicago.

The deceased was a 14-year-old male who was shot in the head died at Stroger Hospital, according to Chicago police.

Another 16-year-old boy was shot in the head and is currently in critical condition at Mt. Sinai Hospital along with three other adult males involved in the shooting who are in stable condition. 

Chicago police said that five people, including two teens, were wounded near W. 13th St. and S. Christiana Ave. around 6:05 p.m, according to ABC7. The victims were between the ages of 14 and 22. 

Five minutes later five more individuals were shot a few blocks away near W. Douglas Blvd. and S. Ridgeway Ave. The second shooting included three teenage victims aged 15, 14, and 17, all male and all taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital in good condition.

Additionally, an 18-year-old male shot in the upper body is in critical condition and a 22-year-old male was shot in the right thigh and taken to Mt. Sinai in good condition.

The two shootings were connected, according to a statement by police cited by ABC7. However, there were no further details offered about what prompted the shooting spree or details on who the suspects in the case are, though there were no suspects in custody at the time of their report.

Chicago police did, however, say that they’re depending on the community to help them fill in the gaps, saying that they have a lot of work ahead of them to sort out what happened on Wednesday. 

“This is becoming an effort where we’re going to need a all-hands-on-deck approach,” said Chicago Police Deputy Chief Ernest Cato. “And that approach is going to involve our community. Our community getting involved and saying what’s going on. Our community who has cell phone pictures, who has Facebook information. We’re gonna need your help.”

America was NEVER like this. Now all we see on the news in violence, shootings, stabbings etc. Sad. We are no better off than some of the terrorist countries that are in the middle east. We have so called leaders doing nothing to help curb the problem. The infux at the border certainly is not helping.Why are we allowing these peope to flood into the country? Why do we catch and release? This is totally odiotic. We need to clean sweep the country and never mind putting these terrorists in our jails, send them back to their own countries and close the borders. Trump had the right idea, do not allow immigrants from certain countries to come into the U.S. Right now everyone and anyone can cross the border at will with no resistance. The people running the country now are totally irresponsible. Congress is irresponsible. A lot of state legislatures are irresponsible. The country needs a thorough clean up. Let’s get it done in 2022, if not sooner.

Lori Lightfoot needs to be removed from the office. It seems the Democrats enjoy the notoriety they receive from the media. They are creating less of a “carbon footprint” by decreasing the population in their state.

BUT, Lorrie lighthead said the violent crime rate was decreasing. Is she lying or just flat out ignorant of the facts? I know facts and the truth, seem to confuse liberals.

america is like a public swimming pool that has turds floating in it; would you get in the water? There is also urine in the water, and chlorine can’t disinfect the problem away.

Lori Lighthead’s disaster of a city continues to be a war zone. The morons who voted this clown into office are getting exactly what they deserve. It’s very unfortunate for those who didn’t vote for her, but now, perhaps, they will rally around an electable candidate. Al Capone kept the city safer.

Wake up and realize that you will never get the guns out of their hands. You have to get the hands off the guns. That is what kills. These children and all peoples are our brothers and sisters regardless of color. This is supposed to be a free country it is our job to make it free for all citizens of this great country

Very naive!. The democrats want these killings,they have supplied the cash, with malice. YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD A DEMOCRAT GO AFTER THE SHOOTERS, NEVER EVER. AND WHEN THEY CATCH ONE, LET THEM LOOSE OR A SLAP ON THE WRIST. SERIAL SHOOTER KILLING NUMEROUS CITIZENS, 2.5 YEARS.
THEY WANT EVERY GOOD CITIZEN DISARMED EVEN OH HUNTING WEAPONS. DO THEY CANT PROTECT THEMSELVES OR HUNT. .
ALL I CAN SAY IS LOOK AT THE TIMELINE OF THE NAXIS WHEN THEY TOOK WARSAW. FIRST EXECUTE 22,000 POLICE, REMOVED ALL WEAPONS, SECOND ROUND UP CITIZENS, PUT THEM IN GHETTOES WITH CURFEWS, SHUT THEIR BUSINESSES DOWN, SHUT OFF FOOD, THEN ENERGY, THEN WATER. 750,000 WARSAW CITIZENS DIED. THE DEMOCRATS/RADICAL LEFT DOING THE SAME.
DEMOCRATS USING EXACT SAME AS NAZIS. YOU HAVE TOO BE A REAL AMERICAN TOO SEE RXACTLY THE GAME PLAN. I READ AND SAW IT 1990= I SAW OBAMAO ,VAN JONES,FARRAKHAN AND NOW WARNOCK ALL CITING WHITE GENOCIDE, JEWS INCLUDED

Again this proves that a “no gun” law as Chicago has had for years does not stop gun violence

It appears the new “TASK FORCE TO REDUCE GUN VIOLENCE” isn’t working out so well. Send the social workers in and they’ll straiten out these kids. Can you imagine what the score will be by the end of summer, shootings and killings?
