How is gun control working for Chicago? 54 people were shot in Chicago only 4 days into the new year.
“According to the Chicago Tribune, there were 54 shooting victims between January 1, 2017, through January 4, 2017. Of those, seven were shot fatally.
Two of those fatalities occurred around noon Tuesday when the Tribune reports that 16-year-old Malik McNeese and a 17-year-old Stevie Jefferson were shot and killed. Both boys were on a sidewalk “in the 3400 block of West Fulton Boulevard” when a “black SUV” rolled up and someone in the vehicle opened fire. A 65-year-old woman was also struck by the gunfire too, but she is expected to survive.
Twenty-three-year-old Simmison McGruder was also shot to death on Tuesday. He was “in the 3200 block of West Lexington Street, just down the street from the Harrison District police station” when he was killed shortly after 11 pm.”
