BREAKING: Another Police Shooting
A person was seriously wounded in a police-involved shooting in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood on the West Side -- on the same block where a 15-year-old boy was gunned down earlier this week on his birthday.
The shooting occurred around 4:50 p.m. near the intersection of Kolin and Hirsch avenues, said Chicago Police Officer Darryl Baety. The shooting was police-involved, but no further details were immediately available, although it did not appear a police officer was shot, said a spokesman for the Independent Police Review Authority.
The victim was taken in serious to critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital.
UPDATE: Turns out to be a "friend" of the deceased, probably out looking for revenge. Be very very careful out there boys and girls. With the fest this weekend and everything, this isn't looking like a good omen.
UPDATE: This is priceless:
- The elder Gonzalez described his son as a good kid who wasn't part of a gang.
