7 Shot At Club During Rapper's Album Release Party -- Chicago police suspect the incident was gang-related

Seven people were shot inside this nightclub on Chicago's South Side during a local rapper's record release party. Police said they suspect the incident was gang-related. Police said three men opened fire inside Mr. G's Supperclub on the 1500 block of West 87th Street around 1:15 a.m. A fight had started at the release party for a local rapper, police said, and three men pulled out handguns and fired into the crowd. A 19-year-old woman was struck and taken to Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn. Six men, mostly in their 20s, were also wounded. Only one was transported by ambulance.

Police said no one was seriously hurt and all the victims' wounds were minor. Community activist Andrew Holmes said the woman was struck several times and is in critical condition. Police could not confirm those details. "[The shooting] may or may not have been caught on surveillance cameras inside this place as well as outside," Holmes said. "But there was a female who was shot multiple times."

No one is in custody, and officials did not have a description of the suspects as of Thursday morning. Police said they believe the incident is gang-related. Source: 7 Shot At Club During Rapper's Album Release Party | NBC Chicago

Bottom line …

Chicago already has strict gun control laws that are not working -- adding more doesn't solve the problem the politicians are afraid to tackle with force. The gangs are taking over the streets and the culture.

It’s all commonsense, if minority gangs are the problem, you attack gangs, not disarm law-abiding citizens to create a bigger victim pool. If you are afraid that an attack on gangs might be perceived as an attack on your base constituency, remember gang members don’t normally vote, but law-abiding citizens do.
