CHICAGO-- Before the sun had a chance to set on Friday three people were killed three others injured in separate shootings.

Two, police say, were gunned down around five in the 4200 block of west Grenshaw in the Lawndale neighborhood.

Police say a shooter walked up to a 30-year-old man and opened fire, then turned the gun on a 29-year-old in the driver’s seat of this red pickup killing them both. Police say both men had Indiana IDs but no one is sure if they had possibly moved to the city or not. A 54 year old woman was also hit in the leg.

Two woman had just gotten inside their home across the street from where the shooting happened.

Police do not have a description of the shooter just yet.

About 20 minutes later---a 30-year-old man was shot and killed in a drive by in 1300 block of 75th-- a police source says this shooting is likely gang related.

The sad part is-- it’s not that warm-- and we are just starting the month of May.

The other man hurt police should be ok he was shot in the foot and isn’t cooperating with police.

    Why should the police investigate these crimes? They are being bashed, criticized, arrested and sued for trying to arrest criminals.If I was a cop I would just show up to pick up the bodies. The criminals know the pressure the police are under and they will be more aggressive now. there will be more crime no doubt about it.
