Tell me how gun control works???? c-rock www.illinois-shooter.org 6 are slain in weekend violence By Amanda Vogt Tribune staff reporter June 24, 2001 Six people were killed and at least five injured during what officials termed an especially violent first weekend of the summer in Chicago. The victims, police said, included a 12-year-old boy wounded by gunfire while waiting for his mother in a car and a man found handcuffed and bound with duct tape. "This amount of violence is always unusual," said Sgt. Jack Wilkins of the Police Department's Calumet Area, where all six homicides occurred. Also out of the ordinary is that so many of the incidents ended in death, police spokesman Carlos Herrera said. "With so many capable trauma centers in the area, that's unusual," he said. Two of the six died after gunmen wearing hooded sweatshirts stepped from a gangway at 1:15 a.m. Saturday and shot four men in the 7800 block of South Constance Avenue, police spokeswoman Laura Kubiak said. Harold Hines, 30, was shot once in the chest, and Tredell Fort, 40, was shot once in the abdomen. Both lived on the block. The other men received minor injuries and were treated at nearby hospitals and released, officials said. No one was in custody, Kubiak said. In a similar but apparently unrelated incident about 12:20 a.m., two gunmen emerged from a gangway in the 8400 block of South Escanaba Avenue and shot a 21-year-old man once in the back as he walked toward his girlfriend's parked car, Calumet Area Sgt. Stan Salabura said. David Washington of the 7700 block of South Kingston Avenue was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Kubiak said. Also Saturday, police found the body of Corey Jefferson, 32, at 10:44 a.m. in his second-floor apartment in the first block of East 103rd Street. He had been stabbed once in the chest, Wilkins said. Jefferson's girlfriend was questioned in the slaying, he said, but police released her after she raised issues of self-defense. 2 found Saturday The fifth and sixth homicide victims were found Saturday by passersby, police said. A motorist driving through an alley in the 300 block of West 108th Place early Saturday found the body of a 19-year-old man who had been shot in the head, Kubiak said. Officials are waiting to notify family members before releasing his name, and police have no one in custody, Calumet Area Sgt. Bill Owens said. About 4:15 a.m., a pedestrian in the 11200 block of South Stewart Avenue found the bound body of a man in bushes, Kubiak said. The victim's head was wrapped in a towel and covered with duct tape, and his ankles were wrapped in duct tape and his hands cuffed, Herrera said.

A spokesman with the Cook County medical examiner's office said preliminary autopsy results indicate the man died of suffocation. There was no identification on the body, Wilkins said. In a shooting incident police said appears gang-related, a 25-year-old man was in serious condition Saturday evening at University of Chicago Hospital after undergoing surgery to remove a bullet from his abdomen, a hospital spokesman said. Louis Bluford of the 6100 block of South King Drive was shot late Friday by a bicyclist as he stood at the corner of 63rd Street and South King Drive, Herrera said. Friends of the victim drove him to the hospital and fled, Herrera said. The gunman is described as a black male, 5 foot 7, 160 pounds and wearing a black jacket, Herrera said. In the Marquette Park neighborhood, another apparently gang-related shooting left a 12-year-old boy in fair condition at Christ Medical Center. The boy had been sitting in the back seat of a parked car waiting for his mother at midnight when a man exited a gray-and-white-striped van nearby, she said. 3 shots fired The man walked up to the car and fired three shots, hitting the boy in the back, Kubiak said. The gunman was described as a Hispanic man with a shaved head, 17 to 19 years old, 5 foot 5 and 150 pounds. A 55-year-old man was in good condition at Mount Sinai Hospital on Saturday evening after being shot three times in the torso after he refused to hand over his wallet during a robbery attempt at a West Side gas station, Kubiak said. The man had been standing outside the entrance to a gas station at 119 S. Cicero Ave. when he was approached about 6:30 a.m., Kubiak said. A witness told police the victim tried to walk away, and the gunman shot him three times, once in the chest and twice in the back. The victim told police the man shot him after he refused to give him money, Kubiak said. The gunman is described as a black man between 20 and 30 years old, 6 feet tall and 160 to 180 pounds, she said.

You support gun control if you think resisting a mugger is crazy - you should submit to a mugger because he doesn't really want to shoot you. But he will if you don't give him what he wants. You'll note that in every one of the shooting cases the perps had (illegal) guns (this is Chicago, remember) but the victims were (surprise!) unarmed. Chances are high that many of the victims had long rap sheets, but not the boy. Perhaps the shooter was mommies ex? [i][b]THAT'S[/i][/b] how gun control works. It renders the peons unarmed leaving them to be victimized by the criminals and the government (but I'm repeating myself). [sniper]
