    5 Shot After Chicago High School Basketball Game

    Friday, January 09, 2009



    CHICAGO At least five people were shot Friday as spectators left a crowded basketball game at a high school on the city's South Side, scattering panicked students.

    Five males three in serious condition and two in critical were taken from Paul Laurence Dunbar Vocational Career Academy around 8 p.m., said Chicago Fire Department spokeswoman Eve Rodriguez.

    "It was crazy. It was like killers on the loose," said Joshua Glaze, 15, a freshman at the school.

    The game was in overtime and some students began to leave the building, Glaze said.

    Dunbar freshman Shaneisha Turman, 15, said she saw a silver truck pull up to a bus stop outside the school. People inside the truck pretended to fire a gun and then "they really started shooting," she told the Chicago Tribune.

    People were shouting, "'They're shooting!"' Turman said. "It was a lot of people shouting and running."

    No one was in custody, said Chicago Police Department spokeswoman Antoinette Ursitti.

    Police have blocked access to streets at least two blocks from the high school, and several ambulances and police cars are at the scene.

    No one answered the telephone at the school.

    I think that this has less to do with the Chicago handgun ban than it does with it infested with gangs; gang violence, unfortunately, is everywhere, regardless of how gun friendly (or unfriendly) a place is. Still, it is quite unfortunate.

    Yes, Sir. Very True. It is a sad commentary that these groups feel that being a gang member is their key to respect.

    Thumbs down Well, that tears it.

    I guess that they had better put more restrictive gun laws in place; these gang members don't seem to be paying attention to the current laws!

    P.S. For those of you "satire challenged", that is sarcasm.

    Exactly. That was my point. As we all know the laws only stop law abiding citizens from being able to protect themselves. It does nothing to stop crime and violence.

    And we all know that these fine, upstanding young men all had carry permits. Too bad more honest citizens weren't packing at the game.

    You know what, GP?

    That is very funny. You hit the nail on the head. I just think that it is sad that, had one honest, mostly law abiding person been packing, he/she would have been the one on trial, even if that person had saved one or more of those victims from being shot. Sad state of affairs.

    Even if it's not his district, it's his hometown; the very gun laws he supports do nothing but create victims like the ones who got shot in this incident. Nevertheless, he'll probably see this as a reason for more gun control.

    Woman killed, 2-year-old girl injured in drive-by shooting

    By Melanie D. Scott
    Free Press Staff WriterA 26-year-old Detroit woman was killed late tonight after the car she was driving was riddled with bullets. The woman's 2-year-old daughter was severely injured in the shooting.

    According to Free Press reporting partner WDIV-TV Local 4, the woman was in her car with four passengers. A male passenger was injured, but ran from the car with the 2-year-old to a nearby gas station to call for help.

    The girl was taken to Children's Hospital, but the status of her condition was not released by police. The girl was shot in her arm, leg and back.
    Witnesses told police the suspect was driving a black car, possibly a Ford Taurus or Mercury Sable. Detroit Police are still investigating and said they do not have a motive for the shooting.
