An 18-year-old was shot in the chest during a driveby shooting in the Pilsen neighborhood on the West Side and is in critical condition at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, police said. Police were called about 3:10 a.m. to the scene in the 1900 block of South Morgan Street after receiving a report of a person being shot and found a crowd surrounding the victim who was laying on the sidewalk.

I grew up in Chicago and don’t miss it a bit.
They were headed there to discuss the Ryan budget and entitlement reform when they were caught in the crossfire.
This is the America that the Marxists now in power want. They want division, class envy and lawlessness in order to bolster their claim to MORE POWER to correct the problems. The minorities are their willing accomplices in this not realizing that they will be the ones most hurt by Marxist policies. Al they have to do is look around. The WAR ON POVERTY has been going on since LBJ and more money has been spent on it that on all the shooting wars in our history...with what result? More poverty, more violence, more broken families and more unemployment.
Rham said: "It's easy to do business in Chicago when you know 'the rules.' Chick-Fil-A can open in our town as long as it adopts 'Chicago Values.' "
(1) weekly cash pay off to the alderman;
(2) hire six of the alderman's friends who work only random days of the month,
(3) BIG AL from the Mayor's office picks up all cash in brown paper bags at CFA's back door,
(4) Train Chick Fil A staff to shoot 10-12 customers per month,
(5) Any CFA customers actually killed must be registered to vote as Democrats,
(6) $100,00 campaign contribution to Obama,
(7) free food to Jesse Jackson, Jr, who is now "convalescing," b/c he screwed up buying Obama's Senate seat.
ONLY CRIMINALS SHOULD OWN GUNS.
You just summed up Rham's "values." I still have family in Chi-town, they're on their own- I'm a Texan now!
Is this why Rahm was sent back to Chicago to become Mayor?
Get with it Rahm! I’ve made book in Vegas that Chicago will kill more than 50 in 24 hours! Let’s get the LEAD OUT!
But, if the youth gangs, who are out doing God knows what, will support homosexual marriage, then that will override anything else they are doing.
Chicago values homosexual marriage, per their mayor. Nothing else matters, apparently.
Good one Liz!
"A 27-year-old who had been arrested 63 times was shot in the buttocks about 7:20 p.m. near the intersection of 63rd Street and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive ..."
Now, call me crazy, but if this guy was arrested 63 times, maybe he should have been in jail. I know he was the vic, this time, supposedly, but this is symptomatic of what the problem is. Revolving door justice.
Imagine the irony of a man being arrested 63 times, shot at 63rd street and MLK Drive. Could he be one of Holder's people?
Vast majority of this is black on black crime.
No one obviously gives a damn.
I know I don’t.
I could have a higher priced "Rahm E" signature series, too.
I'm sensing big profits, here.
I believe all this Chicago violence is a direct result of past community organizing work. Who did that?
Blacks have culturally segregated themselves through minority victimhood, gangland violence and hip hop barbarianism, so why should anyone care what they do to each other. They have made it clear that they are not us.
Why is this even in the news? Aren’t there more important things to cover? I’m sure there were more than 10 incidents of homo bashing during the same time frame. Shootings are just a consequence of “Chicago values.” Once this values are instituted on a national basis we will have achieved the president’s goal.
We should wall that area off, escape from New York style, and air drop food every month to support 80% of the currently existing population.
Conservatives are going to lose this effort by Obama to turn dummies against guns unless we start down the “crack down on gangs” shout out. Obama is busy demonizing self defense and his political enemies while gangs and criminal illegals do a bloody march through the country.
I am in Chicago today. No mention of the 10 shootings on local NBC channel. I kid you not, they ran a story that a BB hit a mosque. A single BB. It put a 6 inch crack in a window.
