On the West Side, three men were taken to local hospitals about 11:15 p.m. Thursday with wounds from shotgun blasts at Adams Street and Springfield Avenue, said Harrison District Capt. John Kupczyk. The men, ages 23, 24 and another in his 30s, were on the street when they were fired on near an alley.
The 24-year-old was in critical condition with bullet wounds to his back, Kupczyk said. The others suffered leg wounds and were in good condition, he said.
"Five expended shell casings" from what appeared to be the same shotgun were found at the scene, Kupczyk said.
Also on the West Side, a 37-year-old man was shot multiple times and critically injured, police said.
At about 10:40 p.m., the man was walking in the 1500 block of South Washtenaw Avenue, near Mt. Sinai Hospital, when someone opened fire and fled. The victim was being treated at Mt. Sinai.
No one was in custody this morning in any of the incidents, police said.
The Tribune writer failed to mention that there weren't any near-riots nor outrage expressed any fat-mouth ministers.
