ANOTHER obscene act of violence in Chicago, City of Bloody Shoulders. This one happened in Edgewater, on Chicago's north side in the early hours of Monday, October 1. The 14-year old victim was beaten with a pipe. As with Derrion Albert, the 16-year old who was beaten to death last week on the south side, no firearms were involved. Another similarity: Both crimes happened in a city with very strict anti-gun laws.
Chicago Breaking News reports:
A 14-year-old boy was chased down a street in the Edgewater neighborhood this morning and hit with a pipe, fracturing his skull, according to police and witnesses.
While the boy underwent surgery at Children's Memorial Hospital, police canvassed the 6300 block of North Paulina for leads in the beating -- which came just a week after 16-year-old Derrion Albert was beaten to death on the Far South Side.
"He was covered in blood. Blood was all over the street," said the woman who called police to the scene. "It was all over his face, arms and coming down the back of his head." Full Story...
