At least 29 people have been shot in Chicago since Friday, including two women shot near Montrose Beach Sunday just hours after the Chicago Pride Parade.

The two women were shot in the 4500 block of North Simonds Drive around 6:45 p.m., police said.

Police initially said one woman was shot in the leg and back and another shot in the leg, but later said a 21-year-old woman was shot in the shoulder and a 48-year-old woman shot in the arm and back. Both were transported to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in serious condition, police said.

The shooting took place a little over a mile away from where the Pride Parade stepped off earlier in the day.

“After the parade a lot of people just go by Montrose Beach,” said witness Kim Shine. “Everyone barbecues out there, vendors sell candy and water bottles, it’s just a big gathering around the hill or beach area.”

Shine said she heard a sound she thought was fireworks but quickly realized was gunshots.

“We were standing near the top of the hill near Montrose Beach and we heard a few noises,” she said. “We didn’t know if it was gunshots or fireworks. We just saw a slew of people running toward us.”


Eleven others were shot Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning.

  • Most recently, a 25-year-old man was shot in the back and buttocks in the Parkway Gardens neighborhood on the South Side. The man suffered gunshot wounds to the back after being shot around 5 a.m. Sunday in the 6400 block of South King Drive and was listed in critical condition. Police did not have any further details surrounding the shooting and said the victim was being uncooperative.
  • Just after 3 a.m., a 34-year-old man suffered a graze wound to the neck near 132nd Street and Langley Avenue. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in good condition, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Michael Sullivan.
  • About 30 minutes earlier, a 37-year-old man was shot in a parking lot near 19th Street and Pulaski Road. The man told police a small, dark-colored vehicle approached him and someone with a handgun exited the vehicle and opened fire. The man was shot in the arm and back and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in stable condition.
  • Just before 1 a.m., a 20-year-old man was shot in the 1800 block of South Throop. The man was standing on a corner when a dark-colored truck pulled up and someone inside the vehicle opened fire, police said.
  • On Saturday, a 24-year-old man was shot in the buttocks around 8:30 p.m. near 78th Street and Bennett Avenue. The man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in good condition. Details surrounding the shooting were not immediately available.
  • Two hours earlier, a 27-year-old man was shot in the leg in the 5600 block of South Wolcott Avenue. The man was standing on the block when vehicle approached him and someone opened fire. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in good condition, according to authorities.
  • Just before 5:30 p.m., two people were shot in a possible drive-by in the 6200 block of South Vernon Avenue, police said. A 20-year-old man was shot in the foot and a 32-year-old woman was shot in the upper arm. Both were taken to University of Chicago Hospital for treatment, Sullivan said.
  • Around noon, two people were shot in the 300 block of North Laramie Avenue.
  • A 21-year-old man and a 22-year-old man were passengers in a van traveling southbound on Laramie Avenue. When the van stopped at a stoplight, an offender approached them on foot and opened fire. The 21-year-old was shot in the leg and taken in good condition to Mount Sinai Hospital and the 22-year-old was also shot in the leg and taken in good condition to West Suburban Medical Center.
  • Police said the weekend’s sole fatality, as of Sunday morning, occurred just before 9 a.m. Saturday when a 42-year-old man was fatally shot in the head while riding his bike. The shooting took place in the 3600 block of West Chicago Avenue. Police said the man was taken to Mount Sinai hospital with wounds to the head and right arm and was later pronounced dead.


At least 16 others have been shot in Chicago since Friday, including a teen who was shot just outside the Rainbow PUSH Coalition’s headquarters and just two blocks away from President Barack Obama’s Chicago home.

    I don’t think there is any real beef in chicago its just people shooting random people.

      Thats a lie. Being born and raised in Chicago far Southside its no better and its not getting any better. They shoot just cause they got a gun. They take their gang banging seriously. I stay right in between the gang wars and knowing that its the same ppl that I grew up with and not to mention played together and even went to the same school now they standing across the street from each other shooting at each other. If you from Chicago born & raised then you know your city & know that your guilty by association and has now made yourself a target. So yes they do shoot to kill and even play the point em out knock em out game with the elderly, young, even women with kids its sad and disrespectful but what can you do when the home training starts at home but their isn’t none initiated.

      Well at this rate, there won’t be anyone left to kill and then maybe we can rebuild.

    well we as a fashion – music house out of new york and Minnesota has answers to the Chicago gun violence we need come to Chicago to set up shop to teach the youth generation through music and fashion and make role models to stop the gun crime!!!

    • July 1, 2014 at 7:33 pm

      They need an alternative…

    • July 3, 2014 at 3:26 pm

      The last thing I youth need is more music and fashion! They need to be freakin educated! Half of them out here killing because of music and fashion, so no Production House, that ain’t the answer. How about some character building, some actual parenting! How about VOTING for out tax dollars to go toward education and not the war. That music and fashion mess is confusing these kids and is part of the problem.

    Notice how no body is shot about the waist so that clearly shows me that no body is shooting to kill people they are just doing it to look cool but we need to look at the things where doing an supporting like cheif keef he was glorified for the death of others by hand guns and gang banging an not for the good things he has done for that city or community but this is entertainment people loosing there loved ones

      No one is being killed because their just being blessed! I was at the shooting at Montrose and believe me they were trying to kill 1 person in a sea of hundreds of people! My sister is the 21 year old woman shot in the shoulder. She was running away when she was shot like most innocent bystanders. That bullet could have easily been her head but thankfully the creator was not ready for just yet. The other woman shot that day was completely innocent. They didn’t care who was shot, who was killed, they were just shooting in the direction of a man who of course fled like everyone else and unfortunately Aalivia and the other lady were the ones to take bullets. They are shooting to kill don’t ever believe other wise.

    So many illogical fallacies in your statement but let’s go through a more factious breakdown shall we.
    ……………………….”We were just “murdered instead of enslaved”. Had the origins of chemical weapons tested on us, forced sterilizations, residential schools and our women and children raped and murdered.”…………………….
    Native Americans enslaved blacks Africans just as well and other rival tribes.
    (Many Indians from Central America were shipped to the West Indies, also a common destination for Indians transported out of Charleston, South Carolina, and Boston, Massachusetts. Many other Indians were moved hundreds or thousands of miles within the Americas. Sioux Indians from the Minnesota region could be found enslaved in Quebec, and Choctaws from Mississippi in New England. A longstanding line of transportation of Indian slaves led from modern-day Utah and Colorado south into Mexico.)
    (As the Indian slave trade gave way to the African slave trade by the late 1700’s (by then over 300 years old) Native American women began to intermarry with imported Africans, producing mixed-race offspring whose native identities became obscured through time.)

    ………….”chemical weapons” tested on us, forced sterilizations, residential schools and our women and children raped and murdered……………
    Dude, you can’t be fucking serious.

    The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment
    (The study was meant to discover how syphilis affected blacks as opposed to whites—the theory being that whites experienced more neurological complications from syphilis whereas blacks were more susceptible to cardiovascular damage. How this knowledge would have changed clinical treatment of syphilis is uncertain. Although the PHS touted the study as one of great scientific merit, from the outset its actual benefits were hazy. It took almost forty years before someone involved in the study took a hard and honest look at the end results, reporting that “nothing learned will prevent, find, or cure a single case of infectious syphilis or bring us closer to our basic mission of controlling venereal disease in the United States.” When the experiment was brought to the attention of the media in 1972, news anchor Harry Reasoner described it as an experiment that “used human beings as laboratory animals in a long and inefficient study of how long it takes syphilis to kill someone.”)
    ………….chemical weapons tested on us,” forced sterilizations”, residential schools and our women and children raped and murdered……………
    Planned Parenthood.
    (According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, black women are more than 5 times as likely as white women to have an abortion
    On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States.
    This incidence of abortion has resulted in a tremendous loss of life. It has been estimated that since 1973 Black women have had about 16 million abortions. Michael Novak had calculated “Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America’s Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member.”)
    (“Minority communities are the #1 targets of Planned Parenthood,” says Rev. Arnold Culbreath, Director of Protecting Black Life and a founding member of the National Black Pro-Life Coalition. “It’s no wonder abortion remains the leading cause of death among African Americans, higher than all other causes combined. Getting this information to as many people as possible is not only critical, it’s a matter of life and death for countless babies and oft times even their mothers.”Bradley Mattes, Executive Director of Life Issues Institute, added, “This solid evidence is overwhelmingly convincing that Planned Parenthood’s business model is to generate income from an increased number of abortions in minority neighborhoods.” The groups add: “These census results clearly show that Planned Parenthood continues to pursue the eugenics philosophy of its founder, Margaret Sanger, who believed that Blacks and the poor were “unfit” to reproduce. She dedicated her life to controlling the population of these “undesirables” by advancing birth control and sterilization in their neighborhoods. Later, the legalization of abortion gave Planned Parenthood an effective and lucrative means for furthering this eugenics agenda. Although Planned Parenthood denies it, these maps show conclusively that they continue to target minorities for abortion.”)
    ………….chemical weapons tested on us,forced sterilizations, “residential schools and our women and children raped and murdered”……………
    Dude.. Jim Crow? Lynchings?Church Bombings? House Negros? Cocaine being pushed in black neighborhoods?
    (From 1882-1968, 4,743 lynchings occurred in the United States. Of these people that were lynched 3,446 were black. The blacks lynched accounted for 72.7% of the people lynched. These numbers seem large, but it is known that not all of the lynchings were ever recorded. Out of the 4,743 people lynched only 1,297 white people were lynched. That is only 27.3%. Many of the whites lynched were lynched for helping the black or being anti lynching and even for domestic crimes. )
    …………..When is it viewed as cool to get an education and a good paying job…………
    Racial Diversity at HBCUs

    …….Look at what is shoved down their throats and “idolized”……..?
    Generalization much?
    …………….Rappers tell them day in and day out to shoot people and sell drugs………..
    Name one main-screen rapper who tell kids this. lol
    ……..And yes, if you put every race together in the same communities, same income level etc. the amount of gun violence is disproportionate in black communities………
    Illogical Fallacy +1
    Give me one neighborhood that is of mixed race and blacks are responsible for most of the gun violence?
    What is your source for all of this worldstar?
    How about you take a trip over to http://www.chimpout.com or http://www.stormfront.org and generalize all whites then.
    ……………………Whats even sadder is that rappers like Chief Keef and Rick Ross have more influence over the kids than real leaders………………
    Lol. Really? Go over at “worldstar” and look at the comments thats posted about both of those rappers. You make it sound as if Chief Kief put a gun to Jimmy Irvine head and made him get him a record deal.
    ……………………… If all the rappers today started only rapping about getting educations and buying cars and houses with money from a good paying job after working hard you are telling me this would not have an effect on kids…………….
    Illogical fallacy +2
    Tell me more about how these rappers promote the same agenda, or maybe…wait…. just maybe… that type of rebellious music sells?
    ……………….look at the stats of adult Native youth in foster care and facilities and adult Native males in prisons. It is outrageously high……………

    Incarceration Rates:

    2. Oklahoma 9.7 percent

    8. Nebraska 5.8 percent
    8. Wyoming 5.8 percent
    12. Montana 4.5 percent
    Average “3.1”
    ……………………………….You take a good hard look at the IQ levels of kids today compared to those of 30 years ago. The powers that be do not want educated black people or educated natives. So really who still wins? We all talk about the government all day and how we were murdered or enslaved by the government and then we hand our kids over to them to do life sentences and prison time. You’d think we would all be more outraged at the people who poison our children’s minds. Back in the day a drug dealer would have been outed and banned from the communities. Now they are idolized until they get shot and the next idol comes along. This isn’t about reparations and if you think Native people somehow have it better than blacks in America you are extremely misguided my friend. This isn’t about races, it is about being people and giving kids the chance of what they are entitled to, a chance in life and a safe community where kids can actually be kids……………….
    Illogical fallacies +3
    My rebuttal
    Now you’re just being incredibly silly and using no form of sources(would allow me to reply with links to other sites) nor common sense. We weren’t just enslaved by the government, we were enslaved by religion dogma and its participants. Tell me more about how you understand for profit prisons and the CCA. I never said the natives have it better than blacks, Im understanding that’s a point you tried to make.
    Poised our children huh?
    You do know, no you don’t… The crack epidemic was in the 80-90s and this is when drug dealers, Fat Cat, Frank Lucas and Freeway RickRoss were in their prime.
    I did a quick web search for sources instead of just pulling crap out of nowhere and generalizing base of a website that’s merely for profit. Do you believe that rappers are all apart of some conspiracy to keep the black youth down? Or does the ceos of these record companies dictate on who gets signed and promoted?
    It has been sad to debate with you seeing that there are more people out there that believe in fallacious theories and generalize base on a genre of music.
