Gunmen opened fire on a vehicle within a Chicago funeral procession on Saturday around 1 p.m., causing injuries to four people.
According to FOX News, the police have stated that the shooting was “targeted” and that the others in the procession were not at risk.
ABC 7 pointed out that a white pickup pulled up alongside one of the vehicles in the procession and started shooting, resulting in two passengers being wounded.
Two people in another vehicle got also injured.
Lisa Peloquin lives near the location of the shooting and she said, “It’s so terrifying to think that people were shooting this close to my home, this close to my family, this close to our schools.”
“As long as it’s very easy for people who are upset and have some sort of issue to get a gun, then people are going to try to solve issues in this way, and that’s awful. None of us want to live in a world like that,” she added.
The Chicago Sun-Times uncovered that 248 people were killed in Chicago from January 1, 2023, through June 10, 2023.
