Chicago Warzone Update: 1 Dead, 5 Wounded

The Chicago Tribune reports:

One man was dead and five other people wounded, including a 14-year-old boy, in three separate shootings late Saturday and early Sunday in Chicago, authorities said.

A man in his 20s was dead on the scene from gunshot wounds and a 41-year-old man, who was shot in the leg, had his condition stabilized at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn following a shooting in the 1200 block of West 79th Street about 8:30 p.m., said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer, citing preliminary information.

The man slain in the Gresham neighborhood was identified as Andrew Jackson, 27, of the 7600 block of South Sangamon Street, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The two men were walking when someone came up to them and started shooting, according to police. One person was being questioned in the shooting, police said.

About an hour later, a boy, 14, was shot in the abdomen and a man, 51, shot in the arm, in an attack about 9:30 p.m. in the 200 block of East Garfield Boulevard in the Washington Park neighborhood, Greer said. The teen was in serious condition at Comer Children’s Hospital, and the man’s condition was stabilized at John H. Stroger Hospital, police said.

The two victims were outside when a man or boy started shooting at them, police said.

This makes the death toll in Chicago for 2012 stand at 265.

Still no national coverage.
