Five people were killed and at least 15 others have been wounded in separate shootings across the city since Friday evening, including eight shot within the first 30 minutes of June.

The most recent fatal shooting happened early Sunday in the Austin neighborhood, when a teenage boy was killed and five others were wounded.

The six were standing in a group at the intersection of West Ferdinand Street and North Lavergne Avenue about 12:30 a.m. when several shooters emerged from a nearby alley and opened fire, police said.

After many decades of spending untold amounts of money in the inner city the place is still a war zone. I guess its a work in progress. /sarc

Hey. Don't blame Soeotoro. He didn't do it. It was like that when he got there.

That's who he should get to replace Jay the Carnie. Bart Simpson.

He could answer every question at every press conference with. He didn't do it. Nobody saw him do it. It was like that when he got there. You can't prove a thing.

Don’t worry, once Rahm gets those video cameras in Chicago’s almost nonexistent gun stores, all this senseless gun violence will end. /s

Shoot, still early. One thing about Chicago's gang culture, it keeps the hospitals up to speed in treating gunshot wounds. Does the Chicago Police Department ever solve any of these crimes?

Chicago has probably the 2nd toughest gun control laws in the nation, right behind D.C. These laws are a 2nd amendment ifringement directed at law abiding citizens and caused completely by the city’s black murder and violent crime rates.

Gun control laws are working - Chicago and D.C. have the lowest crime rates in the country. /s

After fatal shooting, sister asks: 'What is Rahm Emanuel going to do about this?'

Honey, Rahm doesn't give a rat's ass about you or you're deceased brother.

Don't forget, your brother will be voting Democrat in the next election and probably for the next decade as well.

Love the ballet reference.

Many people don’t know that, but you apparently do, that Rahm is or was a ballerino. His ballet dancing skills help in politics, I’m sure.

Actually, it does look like the CPD does arrest people for murder, not sure if these are related to any of the shootings.

I'm getting to the point where places like Chicago need to pass a law making it mandotory for all gangbangers in a certain geographically fenced in area to possess a gun...

Move the few decent people out and ....

Just let them keep thinning the herd of parasites...

gun control would have prevented this
at least that what the liberals should be saying -—

the community organizer-in-chief says “they bring a knife to a fight, we bring a gun ...”

Bitter gun and religion clingers in Chicago no doubt. Perhaps after they attend services, they’ll be out on the street spewing hot lead.

Will the media cover this non-stop like the “Massacre” in Santa Barbara, which was not even a massacre..he killed three people with knives, three with a gun, here you have 5 dead with a gun but the media won’t report on it since the shooters are gang members and no way are they going to demand gang bangers give up their pieces
