A rundown of injuries from this potentially "gang related" event
Hot on the heels of the "13 dead" Navy base event:
The 3-year-old boy, shot in the ear, in critical condition at Mount Sinai;
A 17-year-old girl, shot in the foot, condition stabilized at Holy Cross Hospital;
A 15-year-old boy shot in the arm, stabilized at Holy Cross;
A man, 27, shot in the leg and wrist, serious condition at Mount Sinai;
A man, 24, shot twice in the stomach, serious condition at Mount Sinia;
A man, 21, shot in the leg, serious condition at Mount Sinai;
A man, 41, shot in the buttocks, serious condition at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital;
A woman, 33, shot in the shoulder, condition stabilized at Northwestern Memorial Hospital;
A man, 31, shot in the buttocks, condition stabilized at Northwestern;
A woman, 23, shot in the foot, condition stabilized at St. Anthony Hospital;
A man, 37, shot in the leg, in good condition at Stroger;
A man, 25, shot in the knee, in good condition at Northwestern;
And a man, 33, who drove himself to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park with a gunshot wound to the leg and who was treated and released.
There are 13 victims, one is hit in the ear, one in the stomach and the rest are hit in the legs or arms, with two hit in the feet only.
Were these "gangsters" really bad shots, or were they aiming for the limbs?
Statistically is this a realistic scenario? Shouldn't more victims have torso wounds?
Big head = big target
Family members identified the (3 year old) boy as Deonta' Howard, whose uncle was shot to death on Labor Day, Sept. 2.
Deonta'--pronounced Deontay--nicknamed Tay Man, has a dislike for haircuts, one cousin said.
"He didn't like haircuts because he has a big head," said Porsche Chester, a cousin of the boy's. "But he is extremely smart. He didn't have that (head) for nothing."
