ANOTHER DEADLY CHICAGO WEEKEND SHOOTINGS: 2 DEAD, 24 WOUNDED…MORE THAN 3,000 SHOOTINGS ALREADY THIS YEAR AND NO CALL FOR PROTEST EH!
2 dead, 24 wounded in shootings Saturday through early Sunday
Bystanders at the birthday party saw the panic before they heard the gunshots.
“I saw running, screaming, hollering,” said a woman who had walked away from the crowd just moments before the chaos.
She heard someone scream: “They’re going to shoot.”
Then she heard three separate volleys of gunfire.
“Bang bang bang, and then stop, bang bang bang, and then stop, bang bang bang, and then stop,” said the woman, who asked not to be named.
Someone had opened fire at a crowded birthday party early Sunday outside on the 1300 block of West Hastings Street, killing a man named Everick L. Coleman and wounding a woman.
The two were among 26 people who were shot from 10 a.m. Saturday to 4:30 a.m. Sunday — an average of someone shot every 43 minutes.
