15 people were shot across the South Side in a 14-hour period beginning Friday about 2 p.m.
Fifteen people were shot, two of them fatally, across the South Side in a 14-hour period starting about 2 p.m. Friday afternoon and continuing into Saturday morning, according to police.

Nine of the 14 were wounded in the Englewood police district – a 20-block-by-22-block square from Garfield Boulevard 20 blocks south to 75th Street and from the Dan Ryan Expressway to a viaduct just west of Leavitt Street.

The shootings included a pair of homicides that each left two others wounded and two other shootings that left men in their 20s or 30s with survivable gunshot wounds, police said.

The afternoon’s first attack left three men shot, one fatally, after a gunman opened fire in a West Englewood barbershop this afternoon.

The shooting took place around 2 p.m. in the 1900 block of West 59th Street, an official said. The trio was among at least four people shot Friday afternoon in the Englewood community.

A 22-year-old man was shot in the chest and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in critical condition, said Police News Affairs Officer Thomas Sweeney. A 44-year-old man was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital in serious condition after also being shot in the chest, and the third victim, a 31-year-old man, was wounded in the hand and taken to Holy Cross Hospital.

Police and fire officials had both said the 22-year-old was dead on the scene, but later corrected that information. The man was pronounced dead at 3 p.m. at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. He was identified as Deandre Ellis of the 5700 block of South Laflin Street, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Ellis was sitting in the “first chair” of the barbershop, getting his hair cut by a 32-year-old barber when the lone shooter – a man or boy dressed all in black – came in and fired, fatally hitting him, striking the barber in the hand, and seriously wounding another man, 44, who was waiting to get his hair cut, police said.

The barber was the victim taken to Holy Cross and the patron underwent surgery at Stroger, police said.

The barbershop is on the first floor of a two-story brick building which has apartments or offices on the second floor. The shop has exposed brick walls and ceiling fans that appear to be brass. A tall chair lay knocked over on the floor.

Barber Carlos Humphrey, 32, said he was inside working when it happened.

“I just ran for cover,” said Humphrey, who walked outside the shop briefly to talk to reporters. “I was trying to get to safety.”

Humphrey was not injured. As he spoke, he was asked to come back into the shop to speak with police.

Michael Johnson, who was watching the scene from across the street, said his cousin was one of the victims.

“My family called me,” he said. “I’m very worried.”

Johnson said his cousin was shot while getting his haircut and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

“Somebody came there, they buzzed them in and they started shooting,” Johnson said.

A man who lives in 5900 block of South Damen said the barbershop is a “family place” that has four male barbers and one female beautician.

“It’s a nice, upscale barbershop,” the man said adding that typically on a Friday, the shop would be full of customers including kids getting their haircut for the weekend.

The man, a frequent customer of the shop who did not want his name use, said he was home when he heard ambulances and went outside to see what was going on. He spoke to one of the barbers who told him the shooters were buzzed in and “walked straight up to the victims and shot them.”

A small eye-level sign bearing a black handgun with a red circle and X over it hung on the glass door of a boutique next door connected and just east of the barbershop called Kin Yae Femme Boutique. Posted over the no guns sign was another small sign that read in green letters “ring bell” with an arrow pointing to the barbershop.

Dion Young, who lives nearby, had just gotten off a 59th Street bus and was returning home from his job at a rental car company.

“It’s bad,” he said. Young said he’d never heard of anything like this happening at the shop.

Witnesses said people in the shop ran out after the attack, looking for the shooter.

Mysti Coburn, 30, who was walking to pick up her daughter at school, was passing the building when she heard two shots, a pause, then two more shots. She couldn’t tell whether the shots came from the shop or the apartments upstairs,.

Those who ran out of the shop asked her, “Did you see the shooter? Where did he go?”

“But I didn’t see him,” Coburn said.

Coburn called 911, then continued on to her 8-year-old’s school. She returned a short while later to find the crime scene taped off and police and ambulances on the scene.

A separate shooting occurred about a mile away.

A 30-year-old man was shot about 5 p.m. in the 5900 block of South Morgan Street, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Thomas Sweeney.

The victim was shot in the leg and back and taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County where his condition had stabilized, Sweeney said.

The other homicide also took place in Englewood. Three people were shot, one fatally, about 10:15 p.m., police said. A 27-year-old was shot in the head and died in an alley behind the 5700 block of South Aberdeen Street and two others, 63 and 25, were wounded. The man who died as identified as Malachi Baldwin of the 5600 block of South Elizabeth Street, according to the medical examiner’s office.

The 25-year-old was shot in the abdomen and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center. The 63-year-old was shot in the hand and taken to Saint Bernard Hospital and Health Care Center in good condition. The three were outide when two people opened fire from a gangway, hitting the three, police said.

In other shootings:

A 23-year-old man was critically wounded in the Back of the Yards neighborhood about 6:15 a.m. Police said someone shot him in the 4500 block of South Hermitage Avenue. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital.

A 23-year-old man was wounded in the Wentworth Gardens neighborhood, in the 3700 block of South Wentworth Avenue, about 4:30 a.m. He was taken to Mercy Hospital and Medical Center with wounds to his buttocks and leg and his condition was stabilized, police said.

Someone shot a 27-year-old man in the 5600 block of South Michigan Avenue about 3:10 a.m. His condition was stabilized at the University of Chicago Medical Center with a graze wound to his ankle, police said. He was walking on the block and was shot by someone who opened fire from a dark colored vehicle, police said. No one is in custody.

Two men were shot in West Englewood about 2:40 a.m. They were on a porch in the 7000 block of South Wolcott Avenue when someone opened fire, hitting a 25-year-old in the leg and a 31-year-old in the face. They were both taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in stable condition, police said. A 30-year-old man is in custody.

Someone came up to the man and fired shots, then fled, Sweeney said.

In the West Woodlawn neighborhood just a minute earlier, police were called to the scene of a shooting in the 6200 block of South Langley Avenue, Sweeney said. A 19-year-old man was shot in the foot and taken to St. Bernard Hospital and Health Care Center, where his condition was stabilized.

Someone approached the man and fired shots, hitting him, Sweeney said.

Where are Al Sharpton,Jesse Jackson, The DOJ, Eric Holder? Not bad for a weekend in Chicago. Little Village shooting closes violent weekend: 3 killed, 30 wounded

Screen Shot 2014-09-22 at 3.16.04 PM

By Peter Nickeas,

The 33rd person shot in Chicago since Friday afternoon walked into Mount Sinai Hospital just after 1:20 a.m. Monday bleeding from wounds to his neck and back. He had been on his side of a gang border in Little Village when someone opened fire, police said.

Neighbors heard the shots and called 911, but responding officers found nothing until the man was dropped off at the hospital, a few fast miles up Ogden Avenue past the police station where officers would respond to the shooting.

Once police had a better idea of where to look, they found shell casings and a spent round next to a garage covered in gang graffiti. A sergeant and two officers scanned nearby sidewalks and the street for more.

Gang graffiti covered a garage inside the scene and a fence across the street. Down Pulaski toward 24th Street from Ogden Avenue, a construction sign was tagged to mark the beginning of the gang’s claim of territory in the neighborhood, south of the viaduct that tracks Ogden.

Not long after officers had determined there was no more evidence to be found in the area they had taped off, a street lamp that had been illuminating the crime scene suddenly switched off. A supervisor jokingly asked one of his officers if he tripped on an extension cord as he walked out of the alley.

Police used the brights on the front of their Tahoe to light up the scene.

As the evidence technician wrapped up his work about 90 minutes after the shooting, another shell casing and another live round were found near an alley a short block away, between Harding and Pulaski.

Two sergeants and their officers walked over, trying to make sense of it: The man said he was shot where police first found shell casings, so why were there shell casings a block away? Would the shooter been able to hit him that accurately from that distance? Could he have been getting chased and didn’t mention it or wasn’t running the way he said he was?

The shooting capped a weekend that saw a return to summer levels of violence: Three people killed and 30 wounded.

• Between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, at least one man was killed and 13 wounded. Davontae Harrison, of the 600 block of North Troy Street, was shot about 6:50 p.m. Saturday while driving his car on the West Side. He was pronounced within an hour of the shooting at Mount Sinai Hospital.

• Between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, at least two people, both teenagers, were killed and 13 people were wounded.

Cortez Rivers, 16, of the 400 block of West Jackson Boulevard, was shot and killed in the West Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side about 4:10 a.m. Saturday. He was among at least seven people shot in that area that night.

The second gunshot fatality was 19-year-old Markise Darling, of the 1600 block of West 61st Street. He was shot in the block where he lived in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South side and died a day later at Advocate Christ Medical Center.

1 dead, 14 wounded in city shootings: ‘Please don’t let me die’

A teen was shot to death and at least 14 other people, including a 12-year-old boy, were wounded in shootings between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

The most recent shooting was a homicide that happened about 4:10 a.m. Saturday in the West Garfield Park neighborhood, and the boy killed was the seventh person shot in that area in the West Garfield Park and Lawndale neighborhoods on the West Side.

The 16-year-old boy was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital. Police had a difficult time finding the boy because the 911 caller gave a location of Jackson Boulevard and Pulaski Road before the boy was found in an alley about half a block west of Pulaski just north of the boulevard.

The boy was able to give his name and said, “Please don’t let me die,” according to police.

About 90 minutes earlier, three people were shot near the intersection of Lexington and Springfield avenues south of the Eisenhower Expressway in Lawndale, just blocks from where the teen was killed Saturday morning.

The three were taken to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County. Police closed Flournoy Street and part of the intersection of Lexington and Springfield avenues, where they found fourteen 40-caliber shell casings. A 33-year-old man was grazed in the chest, a 22-year-old was shot in the arm and leg, and a 28-year-old man was shot in the leg. All three are in good condition, police said.

About 11 p.m. Friday, three people, including a 12-year-old, were wounded near the intersection of Pulaski Road and Adams Street, about half a block from the homicide on Jackson, police said. The 12-year-old boy ran home – he was out past curfew with his uncle when shot – and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition with a leg wound. Another boy, 16, was dropped off at Mount Sinai Hospital by his mother.

The third person, an 18-year-old man, was shot in the buttocks and taken to the same hospital. Someone fired at a crowd from a passing van, according to police and the boy’s mother.

In other shootings:

• About 9:30 p.m. Friday, a 27-year-old man was shot in the right side in the 7100 block of South Rhodes Avenue in what was believed to be a drive-by, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs officer Thomas Sweeney. He was on a porch in the Park Manor neighborhood on the South Side with friends when someone fired toward them. The man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in critical condition.

• About 8:15 p.m. Friday, one person was shot in the 2900 block of West 85th Street at Hayes Park in the Wrightwood neighborhood on the Southwest Side, Sweeney said. An 18-year-old man was shot in the shoulder and his condition had been stabilized at Little Company of Mary Hospital. Someone was believed to have jumped out of a car and shot the man, police said.

• A few minutes earlier in Englewood, about 8:10 p.m. Friday, in the 7200 block of South May Street in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side, three people were shot, Sweeney said. The group was standing on the street when two people approached on foot and started shooting. The shooters fled on foot, police said. A 15-year-old boy was shot in the buttocks and an 18-year-old woman suffered a graze wound to the back; both were in good condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. A 37-year-old man who suffered a gunshot wound to the thigh was in good condition at Little Company of Mary Hospital.

• About 8 p.m. Friday, a 35-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the thigh in the 5400 block of South Damen Avenue n the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the South Side and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital. The man was believed to have been involved in an altercation when he was shot, said Sweeney.

• Someone firing at a group hit a 16-year-old girl about 6:55 p.m. in the 1400 block of West 81st Street in the Gresham neighborhood on the South Side. She was standing outside when someone on foot opened fire and fled the same way, police said. The girl was taken to Christ Medical Center and her condition was stabilized. Police don’t believe she was the target.

• A man was shot and critically wounded in the West Englewood neighborhood Friday afternoon in Chicago, police said. In the attack, a man, age 19, suffered multiple gunshot wounds about 2 p.m. in the 1600 block of West 61st Street, Sweeney said. The man was in critical condition at Christ Medical Cente, Sweeney said. The man had left his home and was found wounded on the street by someone who called police, who found the man with gunshot wounds in the thigh, buttocks and stomach, Sweeney said.

ADMITTING THAT GUN CONTROL DOESN’T WORK, D.C. MAYOR CALLS FOR MORE GUN CONTROL

Screen Shot 2014-09-19 at 4.31.32 PM

Gun control is population control

By Brian Anderson
September 17, 2014

The great thing about arguing gun control with leftist ninnies is that you don’t have to argue at all; they talk themselves into a corner leaving us pro-2A types free to sit back and laugh. Yesterday at a Navy Yard shooting memorial Washington DC Mayor Vincent Gray made an impassioned speech about the need for more gun control, all the while providing proof that tough gun laws do nothing to reduce crime.

“Residents of our city lost friends and neighbors; they lost mothers and fathers; they lost colleagues and they lost fellow church members,” said Gray.

But how can this be? Washington DC has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation. Until recently, handguns were completely banned and the carrying of firearms was prohibited. If gun control laws work, wouldn’t DC be the safest place in the country?

“Our country is drowning in a sea of guns,” continued Gray stealing his material from President Obama.

DC should be an island oasis of safety in this sea of guns because of all the restriction placed on law-abiding citizens, right? Not so fast, Gray brought up the murder of a 14-year old on the streets of DC.

“Senseless gun violence like this is an all-too fact of life here in the District of Columbia and in the nation’s big cities. But it’s a fact of life that we need to stop accepting,” Gray said, continuing, “Why is it that these tragic occurrences never seem to move us any closer to ensure that guns don’t get in the hands of criminals or people who are mentally unstable?”

Wait a second, is he saying that all of DC’s unconstitutional anti-gun laws don’t keep firearms out of the hands of criminals? How’s that for a complete lack of self-awareness?

To hell with the fact that DC’s gun control laws have failed to create a safe city, Gray wants even more restrictions because they are bound to work eventually. He’s even calling for a “holistic” approach to gun control, but doesn’t explain what that is. I am assuming it involves granola, crystals, and yoga.

Unfortunately for the good Mayor, some pesky activist judges have forced the his city to fall into compliance with the 2nd Amendment by saying handgun bans and denying citizens their right to self-defense are unconstitutional. To this, Gray says:

“Those laws are tough laws, and the laws of others are now under attack by Second Amendment advocates who believe in putting the rights of gun owners before community safety.”

To be fair, denying people their 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms hasn’t proven to be a great community safety insurance policy in places like DC and Chicago where guns are severely restricted and the bodies keep piling up.

Gray finishes off his rant with a revised version of the Navy Yard shooting:

“Guns are not the answer, ladies and gentlemen. Guns would not have saved the victims of the Navy Yard.”

From Wikipedia:

Eventually, Alexis jumped out from one of the desks and fired at DeSantis from approximately five feet away, shooting him once in his tactical vest, and the three officers returned fire. DeSantis was uninjured by the gunshot. At 9:25 a.m., Alexis was fatally shot in the head by DeSantis during the gunfight, and his death was later confirmed at 11:50 a.m. [my emphasis]

Guns in the hands of the good guys definitely stopped Aaron Alexis from claiming more victims in his rampage, so it’s not hard to imagine that guns in the hands of office workers could have saved some or all of the 12 victims that day. It’s just too bad the Navy Yard was a “gun-free zone” in the city of DC that, at the time, banned all civilians from concealed carry and a right to self-defense.

SECOND CITY SNUB! Mayor Rahm Quashes Plan To Name $60 Million High School After Obama

Obama2

ERIC OWENS
Education Editor

President Barack Obama has come a long way since the halcyon days of 2009 when then-Newsweek editor Evan Thomas called him “sort of God.” Today, he’s back at war in Iraq and his record-low approval rating stands at 38 percent.

But wait. It gets so much worse.

On Thursday, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel kicked Obama down even further by announcing that that the city has abandoned plans to name a new selective enrollment high school after the president.

Chicago’s Barack Obama College Preparatory High School is no more, Emanuel said. The school, scheduled to open in the fall of 2017, will likely still be built, but it will now be called something else, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Problems with the name arose immediately after Second City officials breathlessly announced plans to build the $60 million top-tier high school. (RELATED: New $60 Million Chicago High School Will Be Named After Obama)

Criticism has come primarily from Chicago’s black community. Detractors have called the new school’s North Side location — just west of the ritzy Gold Coast neighborhood — a slap in the face to poor residents on the South and West sides of the city.

Certainly, the point is a fair one. The school will sit atop the remains of the former Cabrini-Green public housing project on a site that is now convenient mostly to wealthy white people and just a few blocks from the still-gleaming Walter Payton College Preparatory High School.

“Over the last few months, my team has listened to questions and concerns from the community, ranging from location of the building to the naming of the school,” Emanuel said in a statement. “We take that community input seriously, which is why — as we continue to look for a thoughtful way to honor President Obama — we will look for other possible names for this future school.”

Emanuel’s decision to rename the school is almost certainly an attempt to shore up support among black voters and other interest groups as he gears up for re-election. (The election will occur in February 2015.)

Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis, who has indicated that she may run against Emanuel, condemned the mayor despite the name change. (RELATED: Fresh off WEIGHT REDUCTION SURGERY IN MEXICO, Karen Lewis May Run Against Mayor Rahm)

“This notion of putting one more selective enrollment high school on the North Side in walking distance to Walter Payton was a problem,” Lewis told the Chicago Sun-Times. “You’re expanding Walter Payton. Now you’re gonna build another selective enrollment high school and name it for Barack Obama? Barack Obama is a South Sider. Plus, in Chicago, we don’t name schools after living people unless it’s a charter school, and they bought the naming rights.”

Both were listed as stable, Alfaro said.

• Earlier, a 15-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man were shot as they drove in the area of Bryn Mawr Avenue and Pulaski Road in the North Park area about 1:35 p.m., police said.

They drove themselves to Swedish Covenant Hospital and were transferred to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital because of the seriousness of their injuries. The boy was shot in the chest and the man was shot in the right arm, police said.

A man in another vehicle shot into the vehicle with the two teens, police said. The shooter drove off but crashed, then fled on foot. He was caught by officers, police said.

The suspected shooter was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, police said.
