Chiraq: Grandmother, pregnant daughter murdered, baby and two men wounded

This is a particularly sad story out of Chicago's South Side.

From NBC Chicago:
A pregnant woman and her mother were killed, and an infant and two men were wounded in a shooting in Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood on Monday, police said.

The family was coming back from an outing when a barrage of bullets were shot in the 5300 block of South Aberdeen just after 7 p.m, police said. The 11-month-old suffered a gunshot wound in the shooting and was taken to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital in stable condition.

Two women, a 46-year-old and a 23-year-old, were taken to Mt Sinai, police said. Deputy Chief Eugene Roy said at a Monday evening press conference that the two had died.

The 23-year-old was the mother of the infant, and the 46-year-old was the grandmother of the child, police said.
