More Heat, More Violence

Along with the next round of warm weather comes the next round of violence, this one the most violent outbreak the city has seen so far this year. One man is dead and 21 were wounded in a spate of shootings over the 24 hours since this time yesterday. The first shooting was reported yesterday around 11 a.m. in the 5300 block of S. Laflin St. A little over 12 hours later, another shooting just two blocks north of that incident, in the 5100 block of S. Laflin St., another shooting would leave a 19-year-old man dead. Most depressing of all, as the Tribune reports: "No one is in custody for any of the shootings."
