Chiraq: City worker gunned down walking out of Starbucks two blocks from police headquarters

The gangbangers aren't just killing people in Englewood or Austin anymore. While Bronzeville on the South Side is hardly a safe neighborhood--this fatal shooting occurred in daylight just two blocks from Chicago Police headquarters.

Clearly Chicago's street gang members believe they can act defiantly and get away with it.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
A "completely innocent" woman outside a Starbucks at 35th and State was shot and killed Friday afternoon, while another man, a gang member who was the intended target, was critically injured in a shooting just down the block from Chicago Police headquarters that shows "how brazen" the most violent people in the city have become, Chicago's top cop said.

"This incident right here highlights what I've been saying for the past month and a half about how brazen these violent offenders are," Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said at news conference shortly after the shooting. Coincidentally, Johnson and his top brass had been holding a news conference at police headquarters about a mass arrest of gang members around the time of the shooting.

Nelson, of the 4900 block of South Vincennes, was taken to Stroger Hospital, where she died at 4:33 p.m., authorities said. She had been a communications operator for 311 City Services since 2002, according to a statement from the Office of Emergency Management and Communications.
Guns aren't the problem in Chiraq--street gangs are.
