As lawmakers tour Englewood, shooting breaks out near school

Kids playing at school recess found themselves in the middle of a shooting today in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood.

A gunman ran through the playlot at Bass Grammar School during recess. He was waving a weapon before the gunfire broke out.

During the shooting, one man was hit and was taken to a hospital.

Police are searching for suspects.

It happened just blocks away from a tour being taken by Congressman Bobby Rush and Senator Mark Kirk  in an effort to come up with a plan to fight crime.

The lawmakers both agree more police are needed, especially around schools.
