Gawker.com has a good roundup of a wave of violence that swept Chicago last night, claiming seven lives.
Police are investigating a possible connection, but it’s just as likely random.
The deaths were the result of six incidents which took place at different sites throughout the city. Many are considered to be gang-related.
On Thursday night, five were shot in a drive-by shooting.
The bloodshed got little mention in the mainstream media, Gawker reports. Could it be being downplayed so as not to cramp Chicago’s Olympic hopes?
