Two People Shot In Traffic On Schubert

Welcome to Logan Square on the hot days. We had a shooting last night in the neighborhood. It took place at 9:38pm on the 3600 block of W Schubert, according to this Chicago Breaking News article. A man and woman in their 20s were sitting in traffic when some guy came up to their car and fired shots at them. The woman, who is listed in stable condition at Illinois Masonic, was shot in the leg. The man who was shot was treated on scene for a graze wound in the leg.

Personally, I think this is the most tragic shooting out of all of the shootings that happened in Chicago last night because it was two vitcims in this incident. We've got to do something to prevent this kind of stuff from happening, or we're in for a real long summer around here. But it may be too late at this point. If it is, I will do everything in my power to update this blog as much as possible this summer to keep you posted. And it will all be done here on Blogger.

You're right, if the shooter wanted to, he could've shot them in the head and killed them.

Yeah, this seems to be either the beginning of a war or it's a warning.

To be honest, I think some parts of the city should get the national guard. Especially the worst areas. There's just too much going on for only our police to handle on their own. However, I also think that we shouldn't get the national guard because they'll start violating everyone's rights sooner or later.

This type of stuff would happen a lot less if dickhead Daley and his 50 clowns in council would give law-abiding citizens their right to own and concealed carry their guns to protect themselves from criminals. Criminals are going to always get guns and always do so illegally. Why not allow those of us that follow laws to obtain one legally to protect ourselves from scum? Makes no sense. You never see this much random violence in places like Texas because in Texas people can carry their weapons so criminals have to think twice or end up shot. Daley and his cronies have ruined this city. Move out while you can before it's too late, and if you're around come election time.... VOTE EVERY INCUMBENT OUT OF OFFICE.

Anonymous 9:43, I agree. Yes, criminals will always get guns illegaly, and I can't understand why Daley and posse won't let us own handguns. No, it doesn't make any sense. Yes, we do need to vote out every one of the incumbents, and Daley, out of office.

And, yes, Daley has ruined this city.
