There were two men killed and at least twenty-two others wounded since Friday with shootings, according to Chicago’s P. D.
On the South Side of Chicago, Officer Ron Gaines disclosed that a thirty year old male was shot at about 1:41 a. m. dying on the spot in the Englewood neighborhood, as the Chicago Police Spokesman confirms. The man was found inside a vehicle, already unresponsive, in the 7400 block of South Union Avenue, the spokesman stated.
The man was immediately taken to the Advocate Christ Medical Center to tend to his chest’s bullet wound, but was later pronounced dead.
On the other hand, two women and a man were also shot during a shooting on Friday in the Grand Crossing neighborhood at a party, and the man succumbed to his injuries, as the police disclosed.
The crime seemed to have been during a drive-by as Gaines stated someone in a passing vehicle drove by and shot the crowd.
The man who passed away was later identified to have been Terrell Berkhart, and he was shot in the abdomen, being declared dead in the Advocate Christ Medical Center at 8:53 p. m. according to the Cook County’s examiner office.
Two other men were shot, one in the back and the other in the hand, but both men’s condition stabilized when they were taken to the Advocate Christ Medical Center and the Jackson Park Hospital respectively.
There have been more shootings in the University Village neighborhood and on West Maypole Avenue, as well as in the East Garfield Park and other locations, which shows the wave of shootings in Chicago continues to torment the population.
