MyFoxChicago: Three men were killed and at least 11 other people have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening.
The most recent fatal shooting in the Ashburn neighborhood on the Southwest Side left one man dead and another wounded early Saturday. Ladarius Edwards and another man, both 23, were standing on the sidewalk about 2:50 a.m. in the 8000 block of South Fairfield, when a male walked out of a nearby gangway and opened fire, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
Edwards, of the 2500 block of West 79th Street, was shot in the head and the right leg, authorities said. He was taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park, where he was pronounced dead at 3:14 a.m., according to the medical examiner’s office.
The other man was shot in the abdomen and had a graze wound to the right arm, police said. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where his condition had stabilized.
About 11:30 p.m. Friday, a man was shot and killed in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side. Jeffrey Daniels, 24, was found unresponsive in the driver’s seat of a vehicle with a gunshot wound to the head in the 200 block of North Mason, police and the medical examiner’s office said. Daniels, of 1400 block of West Taylor, was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 12:08 a.m., the medical examiner’s office said.
In the weekend’s first fatal shooting, a man has been charged with the accidental shooting death of another man Friday night in the Hyde Park neighborhood on the South Side. Paris D. Walker-Rush, 25, who was ordered held on $900,000 bail Saturday, is facing charges of involuntary manslaughter and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, according to Chicago Police and court records.
About 9 p.m. Friday, officers found 24-year-old David Kennedy unresponsive with a gunshot wound to the head inside an apartment in the 5200 block of South Cornell, police and the medical examiner’s office said. Kennedy, of the 3700 block of South Wood, was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:45 p.m., the medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy performed Saturday ruled his death a homicide. A police source said the men were playing with the gun and it appears the shooting may have been accidental.
Walker-Rush, who lives on the same block where the shooting occurred, was arrested without incident at the scene immediately following the shooting, according to police.
The most recent nonfatal shooting left a man critically wounded Sunday morning in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side.
Officers responding to multiple calls of a battery in progress about 5:30 a.m. in the 2900 block of West 25th Street found the man lying on the ground with gunshot wounds to both legs, police said. The man, whose exact age was not immediately known, was taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital.

He was standing on the sidewalk with another male in the 1200 block of South Independence when a third male walked up and opened fire, police said.

is it just me (I doubt it) or as the former USA continues kicking God out of the country and continues an ever worsening of blasphemies against Jesus Christ. These killings will continue, only getting ever worse and worse as time marches on, popping up in more cities….as God gradually withdraws his spiritual protection from this once great land

Why not go full tilt with Chicago? Wall the whole city off,giver every person there a gun and sell it as a pay-per-view event. Once the criminals AND the good guys have guns,it shouldn’t take long to discover if Chicago is a GOOD place or a BAD place.
