Shootings left at least 8 people on the South and West sides wounded overnight, according to police.
Three of the shootings happened between 4:50 and 5:40 a.m., police said.
A 60-year-old woman was shot in the chin about 4:50 a.m. in 4500 block of South Wolcott Avenue in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the South Side. Police said she wasn't the target and are investigating whether she was stuck in crossfire between two shooters. She was taken to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, where her condition has stabilized.
A 17-year-old boy was shot about 5:35 a.m. in the 7200 block of South Halsted Street in Englewood on the South Side. Someone walked up and shot him in the upper part of his right arm, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada said. He's in good condition at Saint Bernard Hospital and Healthcare Center.

I would normally say I could not care less, but there is always Detroit, which should just be walled up and called a Prison.
I guess it is just to difficult for the race baiters to face the fact of black on black crime, plus there is no media or money to be made there.
If the likes if Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson don’t give a crap, neither do I..if they want to kill each other over there I say go ahead
Where is the condemnation of the people perpetrating these crimes?
Who is heralding their ethnicity?
It’s open season folks...
I detest the way these articles touch on those shot, as if they are okay. These people aren’t okay. Just because they survived, it doesn’t mean their lives are ever going to be the same.
The F-ups doing this, must be hunted down and exterminated.
1. I'm going to Disneyworld!!
2. He's moving to Chicago, and will run for Mayor..after all, he KNOWS how to deal with young black criminals..
Punks should be declared public vermin and bounty offered on them.
No more so than these thugs practicing skeet shooting in broad daylight using their neighborhoods as free fire zones.
Major Hassan’s Army at work.
Sanctioned by the DoJ
I hear ya.

Their “franchise” is built around white “suppression” of blacks. Anything that doesn’t fit this agenda is ignored by the race baiters and their allies in the media.
The race baiters have to continually fabricate and instigate incidents to maintain their notoriety and indeed their financial sources of income. Without a “cause” what would they and their organizations be left doing?
i guess they won’t be expecting al and jesse to visit them.
no race card to whip out.
Only eight? People must’ve stayed home last night to avoid the called-for riots.
This could stop in one night, if they wanted to end it.
You pull officers off other parts of the city. You set up road block checkpoints around the city. You arrest every person you find with guns in the vehicle compartment, illegal weapons in the trunk.
You tell the populace this was the first night of a new effort that will be taking place each night.
For a few days you follow through. You give it a week, and do it again on a spot basis for a month.
End of problem.
Hundreds in jail for ten to twenty makes a pretty loud public statement.
The failure to report black crime is racism.
“...happened between 4:50 and 5:40 a.m”
These crimes against industrious citizens trying to get to work and make a living must be stopped.
That's retarted, sir.
Chicago intra-race ongoing violence is a testament to the failures of Jackson, Sharpton, et al.
They want nothing to do with it. If they did, they might work to solve this problem, but it wouldn’t be anywhere near as lucrative to them personally.
The only time the mayhem in Chicago gets media attention is when gun control is the topic. It’s all about manipulation and exploitation, which is all any so called ‘cause’ means to the left.
Let them kill themselves....thin the herd.
What Chicago really needs a fabulous community organizer to solve all these problems. I wonder who could fit that bill.
