At least six people were shot after a funeral service in the Burnside neighborhood on the South Side Monday afternoon, authorities said.
The shooting happened around 12:20 p.m. in the 9200 block of South Cottage Grove Avenue, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a tweet.
One male was critically injured when he was shot in the head, Chicago Police Sgt. Rocco Alioto said. Five other adults wounded in the shooting were stabilized at area hospitals.
“Early reports indicate the shooting allegedly occurred . . .as the services ended and people were getting in their cars,” he said.
Police arrived to a “chaotic scene” with shell casings spanning two blocks, Alioto said. No one was in custody in connection with the shooting.
Four people were treated at the University of Chicago Medical Center, including the male who was in critical condition. His age was unknown. Also treated there were a 25-year-old man was shot in the arm, a 27-year-old woman shot in the leg and lower body and a 23-year-old man shot in the leg.
A 23-year-old man was stabilized at Advocate Trinity Hospital, and an 18-year-old man was stabilized at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. More
Chicago is a well-known Democrat crime hole where crime flourishes in a true Democrat manner! In other words just another normal day in the city of Chicago. Yeah, that’s how bad and out of control Chicago really is.
In Chicago, not even funerals are sacred. Something must be done to curtail this non-stop violence. https://t.co/q9UJb1VnVt
