Man Shot, Critically Wounded After Argument In Englewood

CHICAGO (CBS) — A drive-by shooter was on the loose Wednesday morning, after critically wounding a man in the Englewood neighborhood overnight.

It all started with an argument between two men outside a gas station in the 1200 block of West 59th Street overnight. Around 12:25 a.m., one of the men left the gas station and returned in a white sport-utility vehicle.

He fired shots from the passenger side of the vehicle, and struck the other man, 21, multiple times in his head and body.

The victim was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where was listed in critical condition early Wednesday after initial reports that he had died, police said.

No one was in custody as of last report.

    You know if Chicago were an armed society these hotheads would eventually kill each other off and Chicago would be a polite society like the rest of the country.

      Look up the news in Philly, NY City, and other polite societies in our country.

    In all actuality most people go out of their way to avoid arguments and confrontation when they are carrying, That’s where the saying an armed society is a polite society comes from. People properly trained know that firearms are strictly for defense purposes only. The hot head criminal will always do what this guy just did legal to carry or not.

    What is it about those south side negros? Whenever they get into a minor argument, they feel the need to pull a gun and commit murder. Not exactly normal!
