Eight people were shot, four of them fatally, inside a residence Tuesday morning in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago. Police received a call of shots fired at 2 a.m. near the residence, followed by a second call of shots fired about 5:45 a.m., ABC7 reported.
There was an argument afore shots were fired and a “party was likely being held” at the house, police verbally expressed. “Four people were pronounced dead on the scene,” the report verbally expressed. Three of the deceased were females and one was a male.
The Chicago Sun-Times identified the women as Denice Mathis, 19-year-old Shermetria Williams, and 28-year-old Ratanya Aryiel Rogers. Mayor Lightfoot responded to the shooting by lamenting that Congress has not taken action to “[eliminate] opportunity for malefactors, for children, to get access to illicit guns.” She claimed the consequence is that “petty disputes turn into mass shooting events.”
Four other shooting victims were conveyed to a hospital for treatment. Two of those victims are in critical condition. “AWR Hawkins” is an award-victoriously triumphing Second Amendment columnist for Breitbart News and the inscriber/curator of Down Range with AWR Hawkins, a weekly newsletter fixated on all things Second Amendment, additionally for Breitbart News.
