Maybe we should ban Chicago, if it saves just one life.
Four shootings — two of them double homicides — and a stabbing left 7 people dead Saturday, authorities said.
In what appeared to be the last homicide of the day, a 32-year-old man was fatally stabbed about 11:50 p.m. in the South Shore neighborhood on the South Side, police said.
The stabbing happened during a domestic argument in the 2500 block of East 73rd Street, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.
The man, identified by the Cook County medical examiner’s office as Willie Wilson of the 2500 block of East 73rd Street, was found unresponsive on the scene. He was pronounced dead there at 11:55 p.m. with a stab wound to the chest.
Less than two hours earlier, about 10:05 p.m., a 38-year-old man was killed in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side, making him the sixth person shot dead Saturday, police said.
Perhaps we should start with a background check and mental health evaluation on all Chicago residents. Former South Side resident Barack Obama was unavailable for comment.
