Didn’t Maya Angelou just tell Chi-Town to stop the violence? An early morning shooting, in what may be a domestic dispute, on South Mozart Street in Chicago left four people dead: three of the victims were kids. Pop the hood.
A gunman entered a home on Chicago’s southwest side early Wednesday, fatally shooting four people — three of them children — and wounding two others, city police said.
A weapon was recovered at the scene and a suspect, who may be related to the victims, was taken into custody about 90 minutes after the 4:30 a.m. shooting, police spokesman Roderick Drew said.
Drew would not identify the suspect who was being questioned by authorities.
Police say a 7-month-old boy, a 3-year-old girl, a 16-year-old girl and a woman were killed. A 13-year-old victim was listed in fair condition and an adult woman in critical condition at Advocate Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, hospital officials said.
Chicago Lawn District Cmdr. John Kupczk said police were trying to determine whether the recovered weapon was used in the murders.
“This is a really bad crime scene,” Kupczk said. “Something like this is pretty incomprehensible.”
This is just a shame. What could make anyone gun down a child?
