13-year-old killed, 3-year-old shot in latest round of gun violence

3-Year-Old Boy Among 12 People Shot In Chicago Overnight

By COURTNEY GOUSMAN
WGN

A teenage boy is dead, a 3-year-old boy is in critical condition and ten others injured in shootings in Chicago since Friday afternoon.

According to police, the boy was out with his mother and another man around 10:15 p.m. Friday on the 4400 block of South Sacramento Avenue in the Brighton Park neighborhood.

A group of people approached and someone in the group opened fire, hitting the boy.

Police say the area has an ongoing gang conflict but it's not clear if its related to this shooting.

Earlier in the evening, police and ambulances were called to the intersection of Lexington and California in the city's Lawndale neighborhood for a mass shooting.

Police say a 13-year-old Samuel Walker was killed and six others were injured when someone opened fire on a group of people, mostly teens.


Three 14-year-olds males, a 15-year-old male, and a 21-year-old male were all taken to the hospital.

A 25-year-old man was treated at the scene.

Walker died about two blocks from his home in the 3000 block of West Flournoy Street.

Police say the incident appears to be gang related and Walker was a documented gang member.

It is certainly good that they have such tough control laws, problem is only the gangs have got the guns, innocent citizens are unarmed and unprotected. Typical liberal logic.

And to think Chicago has mayor that wants to bring in illegals into a city that can't afford its own citizens. Under funded schools, politicans on the take,govt. programs that they can't afford, drugs, gangs,innocent children being killed. How long before this mayor goes to fund raisers!

Why can't they go after these drug gangs, like they did the mob in the 20s & 30s? Aren't these gangs the same type of organization, as the mobs were.

It is really too bad that the people being wounded/killed are not illegal aliens. If they were, President Obama would flood them with money!

He already does; majority of them and their families are on Public Aid!

BTW, for those who think that the gangs are all kids, not so. The heads are in their 20s and 30s!

Notice how many illegals are 16 and over! Gang members being imported and supported by our tax money! Where is the outcry people?

Where are the libs supporting these creeps? Wonder why obama, his minions and supporters aren't taking the illegals and the gang members into their home and supporting them with their own money? Typical lib hypocrites!

yeah, if Obama had a son he could look like the majority of the little boys killed there,, he fails to mention THIS tragedy because it would shed light on the failed liberal policies that cloak this city

The national media is mostly silent on the ravaging of this city,,, they don't mention it because then they would have to discuss the REAL ISSUES there! They can no longer blame gun control laws, they have those in spades (no pun intended).. They have a black thug subculture there that is killing their people,, 75% of these kids are born out of wedlock to teenagers, have had tons of taxpayer money thrown at their neighborhoods and have been a centerpiece of Liberal Ideals which have proven to fail, MISERABLY! So, yeah, while the repeated sound of gunshots kills many of their kids and keeps most of their citizens in fear, the silence from Obama, national black leaders and the national media is DEAFENING!
