1 dead, 5 wounded in Gresham store shooting: 'There were young men scattered everywhere'
chicago tribune ^

Posted on 03/30/2012 3:38:51 PM PDT by traumer

The Rev. Londale McNeal had just left his church in the Gresham neighborhood and was driving down the block when he heard gunfire, 10 maybe 12 shots.

From his rearview mirror, McNeal saw two young men in hooded sweatshirts rush out of a convenience store and jump into a gray SUV and speed off.

He turned back to the store and ran inside. "There were young men scattered everywhere," he said. "Some of them were screaming. . .You could see the wounds."

McNeal said he called for ambulances. He recognized the victims as young men from the neighborhood who he had tried to lure to the boxing gym his church had opened near the store. "These are some of the same ones I pray for every day.”

Police say the two gunmen entered the Bishop Golden Store in the the 1400 block of West 79th Street around 6 p.m. and opened fire, hitting six people inside the store between the ages of 16 and 24.

Shawndell Harris, of the 9600 block of South Perry Avenue, was killed, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

Two others were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, two to Stroger Hospital and the fifth victim to Holy Cross Hospital, police said. Four of them were in critical condition as they were taken to the hospitals.

Know you're joking, but there's a lot of truth in that statement.
Coming to a neighborhood near everyone this summer, about 90% sure.
