Chicago is one of the strictest cities for gun control. How in the world does this continue to happen? It’s easy, criminals do not obey gun laws and will go through great lengths to acquire them. This is very sad. Our heart goes out to the families of those who are injured and deceased.

At least 15 people have been wounded, one fatally, in shootings since Saturday afternoon on the South, West and Northwest sides, according to Chicago police.

In the 900 block of West 85th Street in the Gresham neighborhood, around 3:45 p.m. Saturday, two people were shot, one fatally, said Officer Thomas Sweeney, a police spokesman. A 26-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman were in a vehicle when unknown suspects approached and opened fire on the vehicle, police said.
