Man, 19, shot along Safe Passage route in Englewood

A 19-year-old man is in the hospital after he was shot along a Safe Passage route in Englewood.

It happened Thursday afternoon in the 7000 block of south Sangamon.

That’s along a Safe Passage route for Wentworth Elementary School, which is half of a mile from there.

Police say the victim was walking, when two men turned around and started shooting.

Police and CPS officials are looking into whether any Safe Passage workers were nearby at the time of the shooting.

    Obviously the shooter could not read the sign; they need to incorporate pictographs on the safe passage signs to ensure all cultures and nationalities know they cannot shoot people in these areas. I mean come on. What if a visiting Japanese dude suddenly gets the urge to pop somebody in a safe passage area and he does not understand the words on the sign? He would clearly get out of the murder charge on a technicality. Poor shooter, if he would have just waited till his victim had walked one block over to a non-safe passage area we would all be cool today (snark).
