Warning Graphic, Maggio News, Bloody Chicago Video: When I thought it couldn’t get any worse tonight it did and the west side went up for GRABS, I and I mean totally up for grabs.
Multiple women were shot at near a block party at the corner of Gladys and Cicero in the West Garfield neighborhood
The 3 women were standing on a front porch hangin out when two groups of guys started firing at one another. A 29-year-old woman was shot in the back and was taken to Stroger in stable condition the 2nd woman a 28 year old was shot in the arm and was taken to Stroger in stable condition the 3rd woman a 41 year old was shot in the upper thigh she was taken to Loretto in stable condition. No shooters are in custody. And Area North detectives are investigating.
Its mass chaos when walking up to a shooting where multiple people are shot and there are hundreds of others on the scene in panic wandering around trying to figure out who got shot, it is something to witness Cops firefighters and Paramedics moving in and taking over the volatile and emotionally charged situation, that at times, looks to be totally out of control. The reason why all this is so hard to watch is because over the years I met a lot of really good people in these neighborhoods. most of whom are trapped in this constant cycle of terror. I would like to say these shootings are not representative of the majority that live in most of these neighborhoods, it is a fact that just a handful of people verses the population that are responsible for these shootings and Killings.
