Hey Mayor Lightfoot: Gun control laws still aren’t working in your gang- infested city.
From MyFoxChicago: Fifteen people were shot — two of them fatally — Tuesday in incidents of gun violence across Chicago, including an 18-year-old man who was gunned down in a Pilsen alleyway.
About 1:25 a.m., officers responded to calls of shots fired in the 1600 block of South Loomis Street and found Eduardo Rendon with multiple gunshot wounds to the neck and chest, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. Over a dozen shell casings could be observed at the scene of the shooting.
He was taken to the University of Illinois in Chicago Hospital where he was pronounced dead, authorities said. An autopsy released Tuesday found he died from multiple gunshot wounds and ruled his death a homicide.
The day’s first shooting claimed the life of a 27-year-old man in Vittum Park on the Southwest Side.
He was standing on the sidewalk about 12:45 a.m. in the 4700 block of South Cicero Avenue when someone walked up to him and opened fire, police said.
He was struck multiple times in the chest and rushed to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where he was pronounced dead, police said. An autopsy released Tuesday said he died from his gunshot wounds and ruled his death a homicide, the medical examiner’s office said. His identity has not been released.
In non-fatal incidents, seven people were wounded in less than an hour in a series of shootings across the West Side, including four teenage males shot in West Town.
