DAILYKENN.com -- Five people were fatally shot in Chicago during the Memorial Day weekend (so far).
Large crowds tend to gather at the ABLA Homes public housing community, a site of at least two of the homicides.
According to chicagotribune.com ▼
Guglielmi said officers had been to the housing community multiple times to disperse large crowds that had gathered.
“A review of police and security cameras show several hundred people were gathered prior to this incident,” he said.
Five people were shot during the second shooting; two men died of their injuries and three others who had been seated in a black sedan when a gunman opened fire were being treated for their injuries at Mount Sinai Hospital, according to police.
A 31-year-old woman was shot in the hip and a 25-year-old woman was shot in the left arm as they were sitting in the car, officials said. They were expected to recover from their injuries. Two men, ages 26 and 27, were shot and taken to Stroger Hospital, where they died of their injuries, police said. Information wasn’t immediately available about the fifth shooting victim.
