This Is What's Left After The Cops And Ambulances Leave
It's not a pretty sight. In fact, it's kind of sickening. This is the aftermath of the shooting last night at Sheridan just south of Argyle. It's not polished for TV, or neatly contained. You can connect the dots to see what happened, and imagine the suffering and confusion of the victims.
This is what happens when people are shot on our streets. We don't have any more details than what were in the comments of our previous post, but we've asked for more information as it becomes available. This has to stop.
Update: This information was sent to several block clubs in the 20th Police District by a private citizen. It's not from the police department directly:
"Victim 1 was driving and was making multiple loops around the block (Argyle-Winthrop-Ainslie-Sheridan) according to witnesses.
The Shooter was on the east side of Sheridan shooting West. He shot the car several times, hitting Victim 1 in the leg. He is in good condition without serious damage from the wound. He has no known gang affiliation, but he does have a serious criminal record involving drug possession and distribution.
Victim 2 was a bystander who had a slight wound from a bullet graze from a ricocheting bullet. She has no serious injury.
Shooter was a unknown black male, at this time. The Police believe this was a gang-related shooting."
