14 wounded in mass shooting outside Chicago funeral home

Fearing what Chicago's leftist mayor calls "tyranny," Lori Lightfoot does not want federal agents coming to her city to fight violence. But a few hours after she said that there was a mass shooting on Chicago's South Side tonight.

From Fox Chicago:
At least 14 people were injured in a shooting Tuesday outside of a funeral home in Gresham on the South Side.

The shooting happened about 6:30 p.m. as a group of people left a funeral in the 1000 block of West 79th Street, First Deputy Supt. Eric Carter said. Rhodes Funeral Services is located on that block.

People in a black vehicle opened fire on the group as they left the funeral, Carter said. At least one of the funeral attendees started shooting back, and 60 shell casings were found at the scene.

The vehicle crashed after speeding away from the scene, Carter said, and the occupants fled. Police are questioning one person of interest.
The sight of the shooting is about a mile from St. Sabina Catholic Church, where radical priest, Michael Pfleger, has been pastor for decades.

About an hour before this carnage, Lightfoot Tweeted this bile, "Under no circumstances will I allow Donald Trump’s troops to come to Chicago and terrorize our residents."
