Six Shot at Chicago Vigil for Gunshot Victim
Six people were shot in Chicago on Wednesday night at a vigil for another gunshot victim, police have said. The wounded victims ranged in age and included a 12-year-old girl. All six of the wounded are being treated at local hospitals. The shooting occurred about 8 p.m. in a restaurant, and a witness told reporters that the shooters came through an alley and opened fire on the mourners. The suspects, according to community activist Jedidiah Brown, were members of a gang who found out about the event, which was planned to memorialize Jamayah Fields, 20, who was shot and killed on Monday. The victims were family members of the Fields.
