Developing Story: At Least 11 People Shot In Chicago

Gunmen opened fire on attendees of a funeral for a homicide victim, but it is currently unclear how many were shot.


In a developing story, officials are reporting that at least 11 people have been shot in the South Side of Chicago.

From The Chicago Sun Times:

At least 11 people were shot Tuesday in Gresham on the South Side, according to fire officials.

The shooting happened in the 1000 block of West 79th Street, Chicago police spokesman Tom Ahern said on Twitter about 7 p.m. Rhodes Funeral Services is located on that block.

Nine people were taken from the scene of the shooting with gunshot wounds, Chicago Fire Department officials said. Two other people who were shot drove themselves to a hospital.

They were listed in serious-to-critical condition, fire officials said."

Here is more from our friends at Fox News:

The extent of the victims' injuries was not specified. Calls to the Chicago Fire Department went unanswered.

The shooting comes a day after more than 20 people were shot Monday and after a deadly weekend in which 63 people were shot and 12 were killed.

On Monday, Trump vowed to send federal forces into the city amid a spike in violent crime. Local leaders have pushed back on the plan, arguing it exceeds the authority of the federal government."

There is currently a sinful amount of violent crime and murder being allowed to proliferate in Chicago and other cities across the country. 

What is most shameful is that municipalities are refusing Federal help simply because they hate President Donald Trump. 

These sick people want to defund the police while their own communities are being slaughtered and pillaged. 

But, then again, they have private security.
