At least two people were killed and 11 others wounded in violence across Chicago overnight, most of the victims from just two shootings on the West and South sides, according to police.

Suspects were being questioned in one of the shootings, the killing of a man near his home on the Far South Side, officials said.

The worst shooting occurred around 6 p.m. Thursday when two men in hooded sweatshirts opened fire inside a convenience store in the 1400 block of West 79th Street in the Gresham neighborhood, police said.
One man was killed and five others were wounded. The victims ranged in age from 16 to 24.

The gunmen fled in an SUV and police continued searching for them this morning.

About four hours later, four people were standing in a parking lot in the 4100 block of West Roosevelt Road when a black car drove up and gunfire rang out.

A 29-year-old man was shot in the arm, a second man the same age was shot in the leg, a 27-year-old man was shot in the leg and a 36-year-old man was shot in the thigh, police said. They were all taken by a friend to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said.

The gunman's car fled west on Roosevelt Road and north on Keeler Avenue, police said.

Other shootings:

-- A 31-year-old man was shot and killed across the street from his home on 113th Place between State Street and South Michigan Avenue, police said. David Gulley, 31, was pronounced dead at Roseland Community Hospital about 5:10 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office said.

Calumet District officers saw the shooting and brought several people in for questioning, police said. Up to three guns were recovered, police said. The people were still being questioned as of 5 a.m. today, police said.

-- A 24-year-old man was shot in the buttocks in the 11800 block of South Ashland Avenue about 5 p.m. on the Far South Side, police said. He was walking down the street when two people approached on foot and opened fire, police said.

He was stable Advocate Christ Medical Center, police said. No one was in custody this morning.

-- About 10:15 p.m., a man in his 30s was shot in the leg in the 13100 block of South Ellis Avenue. He was taken to Metro South Medical Center in Blue Island, police said.
The man told police he heard shots and felt pain.

Love the media focusing on dwayne wade's nephew after it was found he was one of the 'innocent chocolate skinned angels' that got shot, instead of the actual problem. Fuck!

Yesterdays Hero

She's better than you, Smirkalicious.
HA! Stupid fucking Chicago. Those Restricted Gun Laws working out? Bet all the shots came from Registered Firearms.

Silly apes.
Keep doggin on Philly, Media Assholes! At least I'm in a state that understands the 2nd, 10th and 14th amendments. (...And I love Chicago (as an East Coaster), barring the loser Cubs. Banging town!)



Chicago is a crown jewel of peace because of their anti self-defense/pro criminal laws.
