Eleven people, including a 3-year-old child, were injured late Thursday when someone opened fire on people in a park located in Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood.
Chicago Fire Department officials said the child was in critical condition. Two other victims were also in critical condition, officials said.
Officer Amina Greer said the shooting occurred shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday. According to Greer, at least 10 ambulances responded to the scene, transporting victims to several area hospitals.
A witness, Julian Harris, told the Chicago Sun-Times that dreadlocked men fired at him from a gray sedan before turning toward Cornell Square Park and firing at people in the area. He said his 3-year-old nephew was wounded in the cheek.

A 3 year old!
My God, if I ever harmed a 3 year old even by accident I’d wish I were dead.
What sort of monsters do we have roaming the streets? How much worse is this all going to get anyway....
Beam me up.
Mass shooting in Chicago? Impossible...
More Chicago South Side violence. Night after night after night, ... unless it’s during the day.
I’m sure Jesse Jackson (Sr. ... Jr. is otherwise occupied) will be there shortly to denounce the culture of violence and minister to the victims. Oh, wait, this was black-on-black violence? Never mind.
Ssssshhhh.. What happens in Chicago STAYS in Chicago (per Rahm Emmanuel)
this can’t be true....Mother Jones just predicted the next mass shooting to happen in Spokane Wa in Feb of next year by a lone white male age 38...
Is that the new PC term for blacks?
Why is a 3-year old out late at night ?
Because that's where the crack is and babysitters can get expensive.
My first thought.
My second thought - Why are 11 other people hanging around in a park after 10PM on a school and work night?
Hmmmm,, im going to guess gang shooting with a shotgun using some sort of birdshot? This just seems to have the “oh look, it happened again” feel to it.
Everyone who caught a BB is “shot”. Again, just a hunch.
Except that 3 are supposedly in critical condition, which would seem to rule out birdshot.
Because these people don’t work. They sleep all day and come out at night like cockroaches, and so begins their “day.” Restaurants and stores are open all night in these thug neighborhoods, and it’s daytime business as usual, but at night. Like one Chicago cop once said, just put some yellow tape around these neighborhoods and let them kill each other off. You’re never going to change them, civilize them, make them productive members of the human race, ‘cause they like the life they have. And it’s been going on for years.....
Chicago: America’s Fallujah.

When you’re getting Obama Reparations Money, every night is Saturday night.
I predicted back in the 80’s that the “crack babies” born then would grow up into monsters without a conscious.
Unfortunately, I was spot on.
