    Just another statistic for Chicago’s crime stats.
    So sad that these young people are dying and committing these acts.

    Had this occurred in 1994 instead of 2014, barely a mention if anything would have been made on the air about this shooting and so many more. The Chicago media however wants us to believe that an epidemic is underway and it’s the guns to blame. Gun violence is down 50% from 1994, why wasn’t it an epidemic then?
