West Englewood home
Over the three-day 4th of July weekend 4 people were shot to death in Chicago while 62 more were wounded.
Among the wounded were two children who were playing with fireworks in the West Englewood neighborhood.
Nearly all of this gunplay involves street gangs. So it was refreshing that police spokespersons were talking about gangs rather than guns as they discussed July 4th weekend violence. As I've said before, Chicago has a street gang problem, shootings are a symptom.
