Guardian Liberty Voice Photo Journalist Untrail D. Boyd reported there was a drive-by shooting at 5:45 p.m. CDT, on May 18, 2016, on Chicago’s West Side. According to witnesses, the shooter was driving a light blue Infinity. The vehicle sped away traveling northbound toward N. Austin Blvd.
On the 5900 block of W. Augusta Blvd., near N. Mayfield Ave. two black men were shot. Their names and ages are unknown.
The first victim was shot in the hand and arm. He was taken to a local hospital where he was being treated for his injuries.
Unfortunately, the second man took shots to his ribs and chest. He succumbed to his wounds and died at the scene. The emergency service workers attempted to revive him without success.
According to Boyd, he had heard on the Chicago police scanner that they were keeping an eye out for a possible retaliation. Officials have reason to suspect that a death from earlier in the day may have been gang-related.
The shooting of a 30-year-old black man who was found dead in an empty field at 9:30 a.m. The field was located on the 5400 block of W. Walton Ave. near W. Iowa St. This event led authorities to broadcast the watch for possible retaliation shootings.
Guardian Liberty Voice will provide updates as they become available.
