Lot of focus on one death in Milwaukee, not a lot on the continual carnage that is Obama’s home town.
CHICAGO (CBS) — Nine people were killed, including the son of a Chicago Police officer, and at least 43 more were wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday night and Monday morning.
Arshell Dennis III, the 19-year-old son of officer Arshell “Chico” Dennis, was gunned down early Sunday on the Southwest Side.
Just after midnight, Dennis was sitting outside near his home in the 2900 block of West 82nd Street with a 20-year-old man when a gunman walked up and started shooting, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Dennis was shot in the chest and taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park, where he died at 12:45 a.m., authorities said. The older man was shot in the arm and chest and taken in serious condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
The weekend’s latest homicide happened Sunday morning in the South Side Park Manor neighborhood.
