ChicagoLand: 11 Shot, Two Dead in Friday Shootings

Posted by on Jan 19, 2013 at 8:32 am

Obviously the perpetrators haven’t been swayed by the nauseating spectacle of  “the children” reading letters to Obama. But remember, the NRA are the bad guys.

Two men were shot to death in separate attacks within about 15 minutes of each  other, one in Austin and one in Back of the Yards, authorities said.

The dead were among 11 people shot since Friday afternoon across the city, including two teens in the Stoney Island Park neighborhood.

About 9:15 p.m., a man was shot to death inside a Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, 5500 W. North Ave.

The man, who witnesses said was about 21 years old, was inside a business when he was shot from outside by someone who fled on foot, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer. He was unresponsive on the scene when police found him but taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, police said.

Three workers inside were cleaning up inside as police examined shell casings outside about 10 p.m. Someone fired at least four times from outside the restaurant, piercing a window and striking the man, police said.

If the media really had any interest in stopping gun violence they’d all be camped out in Chicago doing reports 24/7.  The network newscasts would lead off every night with the death toll. But no, instead they’re working in concert with the administration to demonize the NRA and law-abiding gun owners. They have their priorities and it’s not stopping gun violence. It’s destroying any and all opposition.
