Gay Chicago Magazine, the most recent Uptown shooting, in a spring that has seen two or three a week, was Same Stuff Different Day. Yep, surprise, it was the gang-related and didn't have anything to do with the Pride Parade or Rocks Party earlier in the day.
"CHICAGO – Chicago Police Department officials said June 28 that a shooting incident that left two people injured in Uptown the night before was not gay-related.
Around 9:30 p.m. June 27, a man opened fire on a large group of people standing at the corner of Wilson and Broadway. Two people were wounded and taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital. There were some reports that the shooter yelled anti-gay slurs and that some people caught in the crossfire may have been coming from the annual Rocks Party at the lake, but police said the next morning that it was not related to that.
“It was gang-related,” a CPD spokeswoman said. “There was nothing LGBT-related about it." Police had not apprehended a suspect by mid-day June 28."
