Just a little over a week ago Chiraq had their most violent day of shootings so far this year. And despite the “stay at home” order, the shootings continued to rack up this past weekend.
Apparently it’s still business as usual in Chiraq.
From MyFoxChicago: A man was killed and 22 other people, including a 2-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl, have been injured by gunfire across Chicago so far this weekend.
The fatal attack happened Saturday night in Englewood on the South Side. Two men were sitting in a parked vehicle at 11:56 p.m. when someone walked up and fired shots in the 5700 block of South May Street, according to Chicago police. A 22-year-old man was hit multiple times in the side and ran to a nearby alley.
He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as Alexis Perez of Edgewater on the North Side.
The other man, 39, was hit in both shoulders and taken to the same hospital in fair condition, police said.
The 2-year-old and a 28-year-old man were hurt in the weekend’s first shooting Friday evening in Gresham on the South Side.
They were in a vehicle about 6 p.m. on West 84th Street when another vehicle pulled up and someone fired shots, hitting the man and the toddler, police said. The man’s vehicle rammed into a porch and came to a rest in the 8400 block of South Damen Avenue.
The man was shot in the back of the head and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in critical condition, police said. The boy was hit in the foot, and his condition was stabilized at Little Company of Mary Hospital.
