Several readers are telling us five shots were fired at Sunnyside and Racine around 8:45, with police and ambulances responding in force. Doesn't look like a good situation at all.
And someone else is reporting there's been gang fighting in the Jewel parking lot, with one of the combatants running inside the store.
Gonna be a long, sad night.
Update: We are hearing that one, possibly two people were shot at Racine and Sunnyside, and the crime scene is developing and police are investigating. We are hearing from readers that a body was seen covered with a blanket in the street, although we have no official confirmation of a fatality. Apparently the street is nothing but blue lights, full of first responders, including firefighters from the station on Wilson and Magnolia.
Update: According to the Tribune, two were shot. One is dead on the scene, the other is in critical condition.
Update: And here's the story in the Sun-Times. The victims are 21 and 23. The man who died was Brian Gill. The 21-year-old was shot in the arm and side and is in critical condition.
Three young men lying in the street bleeding yesterday -- one with a blanket over him. Heartbreaking. If you have any information that can help identify the shooters, please contact the police. This has gone on long enough. Enough!
