Makes Emanuel’s recent op-ed even more absurd.
Via Chicago Tribune:
Two reputed gang members were shot at a funeral in the Park Manor neighborhood on the South Side this afternoon, police said, with a minister at the services tweeting afterward, “This is Crazy.”
The two men were shot outside St. Columbanus Church in the 300 block of East 71st Street shortly before 12:30 p.m., across the street from the A.A. Rayner & Sons Funeral Home, police said.
They were taken in critical condition to Stroger, according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Will Knight. Both victims are convicted felons and known gang members, police said.
The shooting occurred after the funeral, according to the minister who was presiding, the Rev. Corey Brooks.
“I just preached a funeral and gunfire has broke out and I believe people have been shot,” Brooks tweeted. “Please pray I believe people have been hit it is Chaos about 500 people here. This is Crazy!!
“Please pray for Chicago,” he added in a later tweet. “This is horrible.”
