My father grew up in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood. The "bad parts" back then were the middle class sections.

Today South Shore is considered one of the better parts of the South Side. But it's not shocking that five people were murdered there in one afternoon.

From NBC Chicago:
Four people were killed after a gunman opened fire at a Chicago restaurant Thursday afternoon just blocks from where a pregnant woman had been found dead hours earlier.

The shootings capped a bloody afternoon on the city's South Side. In total, at least 10 people had been shot across the city since Thursday morning.

The most recent killing happened when police said a man walked up to a restaurant on the 2700 block of East 75th Street and opened fire. When officers arrived at the scene, they found two men unresponsive inside the restaurant and a third shot outside the restaurant.

A fourth man was found unresponsive across the street on the 7500 block of South Coles Avenue, according to authorities.
Oh, you can't blame this latest carnage on the weather. It's rainy and cool today.
