At least five people have been killed and 12 others wounded in gun violence across Chicago Labor Day weekend.

One man was killed and two others were injured in a violent attack in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood early Saturday morning.

The shooting took place around 2:30 a.m. in the 3800 block of South Halsted Street where police found a 21-year-old man dead in an apartment building, police said.

Another man, 21, was found shot in the head and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

A third man, 25, was found with gunshot wounds to the head and leg after his vehicle crashed into a light pole near 43rd Street and Wentworth Avenue, Mirabelli said.

Mirabelli said no other details were available on the shooting and it was not clear if the 25-year-old man was fleeing the scene.

Less than an hour later, a 19-year-old man was shot in the Pilsen neighborhood in the 1000 block of W. 20th Street.

Police said a light-colored SUV drove by and fired shots at the teen, striking him in the left leg. He was transported to Stroger Hospital in stable condition.

Around the same time, a woman was shot in the 4500 block of North Christiana Avenue during an armed robbery. The victim was transported to Swedish Covenant Hospital, police said.

The armed robbers fled the scene but were pulled over shortly after for a traffic stop in the 5300 block of North Kimball, according to authorities.

The officers then arrested two people in the vehicle’s back seat, but a third fled the scene on foot, according to police spokesperson Pat Camden.

Police chased the armed man through gangways before cornering him in the 5400 block of North Spaulding Avenue, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

Police ordered the man to put down his weapon, Camden said, but when the man raised his gun, an officer shot him in the arm and took him into custody.

Just after 4 a.m., a 31-year-old man was shot near the corner of Chicago and Menard Avenues.

Police said the man was standing on the sidewalk when a light-colored SUV drove by and fired shots.

The man was taken to West Suburban Medical Center with wounds to the chest and right arm, but police said he was later transferred to Stroger Hospital in critical condition.

Hours later, a teen was shot in the shoulder in the 500 block of West 81st Street. The 18-year-old man was shot just before 9 a.m. and police said the shooter appeared to have been a relative.

The teen was transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn and was last listed in stable condition, O'Brien said.

O'Brien said it did not appear the shooter was in custody as of Saturday afternoon.

A man in his 20s was found dead Saturday afternoon in the rear of a building in the Morgan Park neighborhood.

The man, said to be between 20 and 25 years of age, suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene, O'Brien said.

No one was in custody for the shooting as of Saturday afternoon.

The weekend's most recent shooting took place Sunday morning around 7:40 a.m. when police were called to the 12200 block of South Aberdeen Street, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Sullivan.

A man was fatally shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene. Police did not have any other details on the shooting Sunday morning.

Around 3 a.m. Sunday a 23-year-old man was shot in the 6700 block of South Marshfield Avenue.

The man was arguing with another man who took out a handgun and shot him, police siad.

The man was taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital with a gunshot wound to the hip, police said.

An off-duty Chicago police officer fatally shot a burglar in the Old Town neighborhood late Saturday night, police said.

Around 6 p.m. Saturday a 16-year-old boy was shot in the Uptown neighborhood.

The boy was in the 1000 block of West Wilson Avenue when he was shot in the head, police said.

He was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition.

A second person was also injured in the same shooting, and later walked into a hospital with a gunshot wound to his wrist, police said.

Around 1:20 p.m., in the 1100 block of North Orleans Street, a man, whose age was not immediately know, was shot in the head by another man dressed in red clothing, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer O'Brien.

The shooter fled the scene and the man was transported in serious condition to an area hospital, O'Brien said.

Further details surrounding the shooting were not immediately available.

On Friday, a man walked into Illinois Masonic Medical Center with a wound to the foot. The man said he was shot about six hours earlier in the 2700 block of North Western Avenue, but police said the incident is still being investigated and it appears the man may have shot himself.

Earlier, a man was killed around 1:30 p.m. in the 5100 block of South Winchester Avenue.

The man suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was pronounced dead at the scene.

No one was in custody for the shooting and no other details were available as of Saturday morning, Mirabelli said.

Police said Sunday that, despite the violent weekend, Chicago saw a decline in shootings and murders for the month of August.

“While there have been significantly fewer shootings and murders this year, one victim is one too many and there's clearly more work to be done,” said Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy. “We will continue our close partnership with the community and continue implementing our comprehensive policing strategy, but to address gun violence we need stronger laws that keep illegal guns out of our streets in the first place."

If it's cold and they are inside the only "people" to shoot are family member or friends instead of a stranger. This could have an affect on the overall number of people shot but it could increase the wounded to killed ratio due to the close proximity making it harder to miss.

Why isn't that city in marshal law 24/7? I think it would be the only city besides Detroit that should be under marshal law all the time until these gangs are destroyed.

I feel bad for their employers..can you imagine what all these shootings must do to their group health insurance rates?


As a side note, could anyone imagine a Trayvon having a "Roth IRA vs 401k" discussion with their baby mama?

Old hat here, butttttt......

They really should have some stricter gun laws in Chicago, that really might curb some of this nonsense.

It's not a cultural systematic issue, nosir, they better make it against the law to have handguns. Someone call the mayor.



Ah, fuck it. The city deserves every fucking bit of it at this point. Good luck bros.

On a completely different tangent... why would anyone put a store like this in a shitty neighborhood like that...

Englewood slated to get a Whole Foods



A Whole Foods grocery store is planned as an anchor for a new development in the struggling Englewood neighborhood. (City of Chicago / September 2, 2013)

Whole Foods Market has agreed to open an 18,000-square-foot store in the Englewood neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side in 2016, according to a release from the city.

The company is expected to detail plans for new store, which could bring 100 jobs to the economically struggling neighborhood, at an event Wednesday morning. Englewood has been called a "food desert" because of its lack of grocery stores and limited access to fresh foods.

The store would be an anchor for a new 13-acre retail development near 63rd and Halsted Street. DL3, led by Leon Walker, will be responsible for the development of the property, the city said.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel made minimizing the city's food deserts one of the core issues of his campaign. The areas with a lack of fresh food options are mostly on the South and West sides in neighborhoods that are predominately comprised of African Americans. A Tribune story last week showed that while Mayor Emanuel has rushed to declare "great progress" in reducing food deserts, the number of stores that have actually opened has fallen short of goals.

The mayor announced that 17 new grocery stores would open in food deserts early in 2011. But just four of those are open currently and one is being built. At least two of the stores were approved before Emanuel took office.

With the opening of a store in Englewood, the city said the number of residents living more than a mile from a major grocery store would fall by about 3.3 percent.

Whole Foods Market currently employs more than 2,000 in Chicago with 18 stores and three under development in Hyde Park, Lake Forest and Park Ridge.

I would have thought a KFC and liquor store would have been more appropriate... and more profitable.

A noble experiment bound for failure.

A "feel good" PR move by Whole Foods... I'm sure they're doing this full well knowing it'll be a money sump.

For those unaware... Whole Foods is crazy expensive. My wife and I call it "Whole Paycheck". For the price of an organic tomato at Whole Foods, you can buy a triple cheeseburger(hold the tomato) at Wendy's.

It's not just the price that will keep the schvoogs away either. I just read an article about this... about a savage neighborhood where they tried to start up a farmer's market. It failed miserably, because, not only did the schvoogs not buy the produce... they couldn't even IDENTIFY the stuff. They had a reporter interviewing various hood rat shoppers, and they didn't know the difference between lettuce and cabbage or a plum and a pear. Ironically enough... none of them could name the eggplant when itwas shown to them. They also couldn't identify an ear of corn until the husk was peeled off.

Beyond the fact that the inner city schvoogs don't know good food when they see it... they sure as fuck would't know how to cook it even if they did get their paws on it.

They're going to try to get the spooks to buy food they can't afford, can't cook, don't even recognize, and sure as fuck wouldn't like the taste of anyway.

Good luck with that.

Maybe Whole Foods is going to have a chitlins, gizzards and collard greens section now. I bet the schwoogs would love them some organic red and purple drank!!
