CHICAGO – Five people were shot and killed just blocks from one other in South Shore Thursday.
The first shooting left 26-year-old Patrice Calvin dead. She was four months pregnant.
Later, just blocks away four people were shot and killed in and near a restaurant.
Several people who work closely with the South Shore community believe this afternoon shooting that left four dead was in retaliation for the woman’s death.
Dana Jackson lost her 19-year-old son Raheam and her 20-year-old son Dillion. Her sons had come to visit her at the restaurant where she works at 75th and Coles.
At the same time, a man with gun came in shot and killed 28-year-old Emmanuel Stokes and another man yet to be identified inside the restaurant.
The shooter then took off after Raheam and Dillion. The suspect shot and killed the brothers just outside the restaurant. One died where he was shot, the other about a block away in a backyard.
Police are investigating. There are no suspects in custody.
