Chicago continued on it’s descent into violence over the Easter weekend as two people were killed and 43 were injured in shootings across the Illinois city.
NBC Chicago reported that a 33 year-old man was fatally shot on the CTA Red Line platform at the Garfield Station on the South Side after he got in an argument with another man, who pulled out a handgun and shot him in the the head and chest. He was rushed to the hospital, but he ended up dying of his injuries.
At 2:27am on Sunday, 23-year-old Tywan Anderson and a 19-year-old man were shot by another man as they stood on a sidewalk in the Douglas Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side. Anderson was shot multiple times in the head and back and was pronounced dead at 2:57am. The 19 year-old was shot in the hand and is now in stable condition.
The final shooting of the weekend occurred at 12:25 a.m. Monday in the West Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side, where a 40-year-old woman was shot in the abdomen as she stood with a group of people on a sidewalk. She was rushed to the hospital and is now in serious condition.
Chicago continues to have one of the highest crime rates in the country even though it has some of the strictest gun laws in the U.S. Clearly, liberals are wrong in saying that stricter gun laws will lower crime…
Please pray for all those affected by this weekend’s shootings!
