Nine people were killed and at least 54 others were wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday evening and Monday morning.
Seven people were shot, one fatally, during a single mass shooting incident about 2:30 a.m. Sunday in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side.
The group was in the parking lot of a banquet hall in the 11900 block of South Loomis when a male in a black SUV opened fire, according to Chicago Police. The SUV then sped away.
About 5:10 a.m. Sunday, a 30-year-old man was gunned down in the Brighton Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side. He was in a vehicle, stopped at a stop light in the 3800 block of South Archer when another vehicle approached and someone inside fired multiple shots, authorities said. The man suffered gunshot wounds to the head, neck and arm and subsequently crashed his vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 5:31 a.m. The medical examiners office has not released the mans name, pending notification of his family.
One man was killed and two other people were wounded in a shooting about 4:30 a.m. Sunday in the Rogers Park neighborhood on the North Side. They were standing on the sidewalk in the 7700 block of North Ashland when someone in a Ford SUV fired shots in their direction. Remus Campbell, 32 was shot in the neck and taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, where he was pronounced dead at 5:35 a.m., authorities said. He lived in the same neighborhood. A 23-year-old man was shot in the left hip and a 23-year-old woman suffered a gunshot wound to the neck. They were both also taken to Saint Francis, where their conditions were stabilized.

And they burned up a Lincoln statue due to idiocy.
It’s a good thing Chicongoans are such lousy shots.
See? Banning gun ranges saves lives...../s
Nice Sanctuary city for Violent Criminals. They like it too
Unless I am remembering incorrectly, I thought the president had sent in the feds to curtail this violence. I thought I read that a couple of months ago.
4:30 AM——5:00 AM-———anyone see a pattern here?
(I doubt that they were delivering papers.)
When will Obama be Tweetin’ some Nelson Mandela?
It was so cool when he was involved in the selfies at Mandela’s funeral.
Moochelle didn’t think it was funny though.
That’s a shame.
He said he was prepared to do that, but has not thus far.
You’d think simple attrition would reduce the thug population in Chicago down to a level of decreased violence.
They must be out-breeding the decline.
Statues getting out of hand again, I suppose.
Piss poor shots.
Chicago politics doing a fine job of eliminating the “undesirables”.
If they can’t get them before they’re born, get them afterwards.
So, who are the real racists? Chicago proves who they are every day.
But we have to send millions to the SPLC because of ONE death in Charlottetown.
Next CBS / MSNBC / CNN Headline:
Confederate Statues on Rampage in Chicago: 9 dead, 54 wounded.
We now go live to Katy Tur (or some other bobblehead).
They need more target practice. If only the thugs held their guns correctly instead of sideways.
The best thing thugs ever did for innocents was decide this is a really good way to fire your weapon:
I would be amazed if they hit their own tenement apartment wall.
Many of the southside shootings are in neighborhoods/areas I routinely spent time in, not that long ago. It was rough, and friends got shot, but was not as indiscriminate and bad.
Where are the black lives matter punks?
They have banned guns in Chitcago. So what gives?
How do these sons of Obama get these guns?
Why isn’t the MSM in an outrage?
Where are the calls to string up the mayor?
Chicago is full of progressives and leftists who really care about people, so there really is nothing to worry about.
BLACK LIVES MATTER ,,,,, somebody ought to tell them .
