From MyFoxChicago (Sun-Times Media Wire) – A 3-year-old boy was among 16 people shot, one fatally, in separate incidents across Chicago since Friday evening.

The boy was shot and seriously wounded about 12:30 a.m. Sunday while traveling in the back seat of a car in the Washington Park neighborhood on the South Side.

The westbound car stopped at a stop sign in the first block of East 60th Street when another vehicle pulled up on the passenger side and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago Police. The car’s driver sped away from the shooting before realizing his only passenger, the 3-year-old boy, was shot in the back.

The driver took the boy to Holy Cross Hospital, where the white Pontiac Grand Am could be seen with at least four bullet holes, surrounded by crime scene tape at the emergency entrance. The boy “suffered what appears to be a graze wound” and was transferred in “serious-but-stable” condition to Comer Children’s Hospital, police said.

At least 13 other people were wounded in separate Chicago shootings between 4:30 p.m. Friday and 6:30 a.m. Sunday.

Last weekend, two men were killed and 26 others were wounded in citywide shootings.

  1. This is carnage on a grand scale. Rahm Emanuel should be forced to drive around these streets in a regular vehicle, with members of his family in the back seat. This dirty secret needs to be raided and investigated for “harvesting”.

    Michael Bennett of the Seattle Seahawks uses a protest oppression to exhibit his own racial attitude. If he is serious about improving racial relations why doesn’t he take a knee for these black people killed in Chicago? Now that would be something to “take a knee on.”

    The mayor, Rahm Emanuel, is a Jew and doesn’t give a damn about these people. The officials in Chicago are not allowing these people to have a gun which is against their rights to protect them selves.

    In fact, that is Obama/Emanuel’s plan – to let them kill each other – black on black crime.

    • kommonsentsjane . . . very good question regarding why a black man would not “take a knee” to protest the wholesale murder in Chicago. I agree with your comment about Rahm Emanuel . . . I don’t think he cares for anyone except they be in a position to further his political ambition.

    • I think you are a little confused here, what you are saying is basically correct, but to single out Obama and Emanuel is missing the point. NO politicians are in any way concerned about anyone that they supposedly represent. Any good works they may do for the community is only to secure another term in office. I am British, married American and I see the problem in the US is that the American people keep electing complete and utter wankers to office. Look at Trump! Who would ever have put that nasty twat in office. Jeez.


      • So if any good works politicians may do for the community is only to secure another term in office, what does that say of your “royal” leaders? PR must be their priority or maybe those they “represent.” Oh wait, they weren’t elected…

        We elected Trump the “wanker.”

        #MAGA, twat.

  5. I wonder at times, why white people are bashed about “not caring” about the lives of blacks, when blacks are not held to the same standard? If we are all “equal” then blacks should care as much, or more about this type of violence. Yet, for some reason, whites are vilified on a national level as oppressors and uncaring about the blacks plight.
    Something has to change and it’s not white’s attitudes, it’s blacks.
