Father, Son Shot In Marquette Park

CHICAGO (STMW) — A father and son were wounded, one critically, in a shooting Sunday morning in the South Side Marquette Park neighborhood.

Two males suffered gunshot wounds while in their vehicles about 11:45 a.m. on the 2900 block of West 66th Street, according to police News Affairs Officer Darryl Baety.

The shooting may have been a drive-by, Baety said.

The victims are reportedly father and son, a source said.

Both victims were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where one was in “stable” condition and the other in critical condition, Baety said.

The CTA’s No. 63 — 63rd Street bus was rerouted in both directions after the shooting, as police investigated.

Wentworth Area detectives are investigating.

    I’d say it was NWA but he doesn’t know any of his children.

      We can still hope that it was NWA.

    Strange. When the old Nazi party was still on 71st street, Marquette Park was THE safest neighborhood in Chicago. They regularly kept tabs on thugs and ran them out of the neighborhood. Within a month after the city shut them down crime skyrocketed and hasn’t gone down since. Just an observation from one who USED to live in MP but now wouldn’t dare.

    I once fell in the lagoon at Marquette Park while clearing snow for a track for Lindblom speed skating team.By the time I walked home(72nd & Springfield)my pants were frozen.This has nothing to do with this story I just thought I would throw it in there.

  • not from south of I80-

    The nazis left like the rest of the other cowards did. Now all they can do is hide behind the computer 20 miles away and whine and cry about the good ole days.

    When the Europeans lived there it was beautiful not it’s just another Detroit.

      The same can be said about a majority of the south side!!!! Filthy negros have destroyed so many beautiful areas. The negro species needs to be eradicated!!!

    Of course, the Europeans here, were chased out of their own country. They brought filth, disease and the desire to sleep with children and their sisters/mothers/aunts/brothers. But their homes were clean. Guess they can stay.

      Tell us about the Eastern Congo rape epidemic, or the stolen children, brainwashed into ravaging villages and beating newborn babies to death. Not at all animalistic behavior to you I suppose.
