4 Killed, 4 Wounded In Chicago’s Second Mass Shooting In 4 Days

Chicago, IL – Four people were killed and four more were hospitalized with gunshot wounds on Tuesday morning following the second mass shooting to take place in Chicago in just four days.

The latest attack occurred near the intersection of Morgan Street and 62nd Street just before 5:45 on June 15, WLS reported.

Chicago police responded to the scene after receiving a report of gunfire at that location.

Investigators determined the shooting took place after an argument broke out inside a house located in the 6200-block of South Morgan, WLS reported.

A 25-year-old man and a second male victim were both rushed to Advocate Christ Medical Center with gunshot wounds to the backs of their heads, police said.

Their conditions have not been released.

A woman was transported to University of Chicago Medical center with unspecified gunshot wounds and has been listed in critical condition, WLS reported.

A 23-year-old male victim showed up at St. Bernard Hospital with a gunshot wound to his back and was subsequently transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition, police said.

Four other victims were pronounced dead at the scene, WLS reported.

Their identities have not yet been released.

A toddler was found at the scene unharmed and was taken into protective custody, according to WLS.

No one had been arrested in connection with the mass shooting as of late Tuesday morning, WLS reported.

The attack occurred within days of another mass shooting in Chicago that left one dead and nine wounded, according to WLS.

That incident occurred in the 7500-block of South Prairie Avenue at approximately 2 a.m. on June 12.

Chicago police said a group of people were standing out on the sidewalk when two men walked up and opened fire on them.

A 29-year-old woman later identified as Kimfier Miles was hit in the abdomen and leg during the attack, WLS reported.

She was rushed to University of Chicago Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Nine additional victims between the ages of 23-49 years old were transported to several local hospitals, where they have been listed in either good or fair condition, according to Chicago police.

No one has been arrested in connection with Saturday’s mass shooting.

At least 45 people were shot in Chicago between Friday night and Monday morning, WLS reported.

Four of those victims ended up dying from their wounds, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Eighteen people were wounded and three more were fatally shot on Monday alone.

The number of shootings over the weekend was down somewhat from the weekend prior, when five people were fatally shot and 53 more were wounded, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
