Chiraq: 2 dead and 8 wounded at memorial for fatal shooting earlier in day

Chicago's descent continues.

Brighton Park is the site of a turf war between four Hispanic gangs, all sides use automatic weapons.

I have fond memories of this Brighton Park--many friends of mine grew up there. They all moved out years ago.

From ABC Chicago:
Ten people were shot, two of them fatally, on Sunday evening near a memorial for an earlier shooting in the Brighton Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side, authorities said.

The shooting wounded eight people at 5:17 p.m. at Rockwell Street and 46th Place, according to the Chicago police and fire departments.

A man and a woman were killed, police said. Their identities were no immediately released.

The shooting was gang retaliation, police said.
Now would it be wrong for me to ask for the immigration status of the members of the four heavily-armed street gangs?
