six people were shot on the 1400 block of West 79th Street on Chicago's South Side-which is in Rush's district.
One of the victims is dead. This section of the South Side is predominantly African-American.
Will Rush, a former Black Panther, express outrage over this tragedy?
Oh, where was his outrage during St. Patrick's Day weekend when 10 Chicagoans were murdered, including 10 year-old Aliyah Shell?
By the way, ten miles north of where tonight's shooting occurred, Vice President Joe Biden was the star attraction at an Obama-Biden fundraiser.
UPDATE 8:10pm CDT: The Chicago Tribune has more details. Four of the wounded in tonight's shooting are in critical condition, the ages of the victims range from 16 to 25.
UPDATE 10:00pm CDT: The Trib expanded their story--and get this, the scumbag shooters were wearing hooded sweatshirts.
UPDATE March 30 7:45am: It was a violent night in Chicago. Within four hours, 13 Chicagoans were shot, two of the victims are dead. Oh, the part in the Tribune about the hooded sweatshirts is here now.
