Stop the Violence: Pregnant Woman Shot While Trick or Treating with Kids

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Jesus Take The Wheel, News, Stop the Violence

An eight month pregnant woman was gunned down while trick or treating with her two children in Chicago over the weekend.  It is suspected to be gang related.  SMH

The woman was walking with her child and two nieces on the south side of Chicago at about 7 p.m., when shots rang out. A stray bullet struck the 20-year-old mom in the back and she was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in serious condition. Although she still remains hospitalized today, the unborn baby did not have to be delivered prematurely and does not appear to be hurt by the incident.

The gang related shooting is said to be linked back to the Latin Kings. No arrests have been made.

    “gunned down while trick or treating with her two children” “The woman was walking with her child and two nieces”

    Which one is it…does she have two children at the age of 20 and having a third or does she have one child, pregnant with her second, at the age of 20; and walking with her two nieces?

    I suspect the Planned Parenthood gang was involved. They wanted to make sure that another “lil’ failure” wasn’t brought into society…………

    Apparently not or else maybe you would have won the Olympics. The negativity surrounding Chicago put y’all in the spotlight WAY before Obama was elected President. The stigma surrouding Cabrini Green and the whole thing with the gangs thrust Chi-Town in the spotlight in the 1970’s!!!

  • No u can't be boyfriend #2!

  • always knew

    I will NEVER live in Chicago, due to the high homicide rate…

    Second, if I was forced to live there, I would never leave my home after 5pm…

    And the kids DEFINITELY would NOT go trick-or-treating… What’s more important, your life or some stale candy??

    Even though the pres is from Chi-town, you couldn’t pay, me to go to that state. I’m surprised that they made it out, without being assaulted in some way… 😦

    Its really being emphasized because Obama and Michelle are from Chicago, trust me some parts of Chicago dont see crime like that~!

    I’m from Chicago, lived there all my life except college years and I recently moved. Whoever says Chicago is not bad is in a very sheltered world. It has become so depressing. Chicago is just a super grimy city, and no one can be trusted. Everybody is out for self. I have lost so many family members and friends to the streets it is ridiculous. It’s normal to hear stories like this at home and you almost get used to it. Nothing surprises me anymore. Like rose by…. said, street gangs don’t run Chi, politicians do. They are basically allowing people to kill each other because they are trying to move all the black people out to the suburbs. Now that hey are tired of commuting from the burbs, they have rebuilt the city, and made it too expensive to live for many blacks. The ones that refuse to move, they are going to let kill each other off. What I have noticed is that when we (blacks) do become successful, we try to move away from the problem(I am guilty of this myself). That isn’t going to solve anything, because one day we will come in contact with the same people we tried to move away from . We really need to try to fix it, and it’s up to us to do it. We cannot count on politicians or anyone else to do it for us.
