Twelve people were shot and wounded Tuesday alone in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the shootings began around 1 a.m. when two males–a 23-year-old and a 25-year-old–were shot while standing “in an alley in the 2400 block of West Grenshaw Street.”
The 23-year-old was shot in the side and the 25-year-old was shot in the back.
Just over an hour later an 18-year-old woman was shot in a drive-by shooting, and that incident was followed by a 33-year-old man being shot while sitting in a vehicle just after 3 a.m.
Shootings continued throughout the day, with the last one on Tuesday occurring at 11:50 p.m. ” in the 6200 block of South Troy Street.”
Democrat-controlled Chicago has just concluded one of the most violent years in its history, with a massive increase in shootings and homicides. https://t.co/sbPMfFGJgN
