On Thursday June 16th at around 12:30 pm a man was shot in the head and killed in front of McNair Elementary School in the Austin Neighborhood on Chicago’s Westside.

Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson has asked the Independent Police Review Authority to open an investigation after a newly posted video appears to show an officer kicking a man in the head as another officer tried to arrest the man.

The video, posted to Facebook on Monday, appears to show an officer struggling to arrest a man in the 3900 block of West Grenshaw. Another officer pulls up and orders onlookers to step back.

On Friday May 10th at around at 8:45 p.m. two men were shot in Englewood Neighborhood on Chicago’s South-side. The two men, ages 26 and 27, were standing outside the Mobil Gas station on the 200 block of West Garfield Blvd, when two gunmen walked up and opened fire on the two then ran away and disappeared into the night. The two men were shot multiple times, one of the men was killed and has been identified as, Terry Bates Jr. age 26, he was pronounced dead at 10:35 p.m. at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The condition of the 27-year-old, who suffered chest and leg wounds, is in stabilize condition.

Investigators say the shooting was gang-related.

This video stands out because it shows the sheer fire power these gang members possess, the amount of shell casings left behind at the scene shows the massive amount of bullets that were fired during the attack, these stray bullets sometimes randomly hit innocent people driving or walking in the affected area. Two examples of indiscriminate bullets that found their targets happened on Friday, a 5-year-old girl was hit by a stray bullet in Marquette Park, and a 73-year-old man shot in the face at a South Side gas station when he was caught driving through a gang shoot out, in the South Shore Neighborhood. In all of these cases the shooter or shooters are still at large.
