‘Drug and gang activity’ suspected in fatal Lake Shore Drive shooting

The shooting death of a woman in a van on Lake Shore Drive early Friday is likely connected to “drug and gang activity,” investigators said.

The woman was found slumped in the driver’s seat of her vehicle — “riddled with bullets” — after she was shot early Friday morning on Lake Shore Drive near the Stevenson Expy. early Friday.

Someone inside a full-sized “brown van” fired shots at the woman’s white van while it was on Lake Shore Drive, Illinois State Police Capt. Luis Gutierrez told reporters.The exact circumstances of what led the shooter to fire off “10 to 14 rounds” remained unclear Friday, and investigators had no one in custody, but Gutierrez said it was likely gang-related.

Police found the woman, believed to be in her 30s, after responding to a call of a car crash. The dead woman was inside her van in the southbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive near I-55, police said.

The woman was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, Illinois State Police said.

Another female passenger in the van was not injured, police said. The passenger was in police custody for questioning early Friday.

Gutierrez said the victim, shortly before the shooting, had driven from the North Side.

As a result of the fatal shooting, authorities closed off southbound lanes on the Lake Shore Drive ramp leading to I-55 about 4:20 a.m., state police said.

“Expect traffic delays,” state police said in a statement. “It is unknown when the ramp will reopen.”

Anti-Second Amendment Extremists Exploit Tucson Shootings
Posted by Van Helsing at January 10, 2011 9:05 AM
Sadly, anti-Second Amendment crusaders didn't wait for the bodies to cool before cashing in on the tragedy in Tucson.
One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday targeting the high-capacity ammunition the gunman used. …
Many said that people with a history of mental instability, like the alleged shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, should not be able to buy a gun — and no one should be able to buy stockpiles of ammunition used by the 22-year-old assailant.
This is called passing from the acceptable to the dubious. Keeping guns away from violent lunatics is a great idea, so long as it can be done without trampling on the rights of the rest of us. Preventing normal Americans from storing ammunition is pure and simple tyranny. Only with the public whipped up in a highly emotional state would extremists stand the slightest chance of pushing through such an outrage, which is why McCarthy is acting so fast.
Regrettably she isn't the only opportunist:
Another vocal supporter for gun control, Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley, told POLITICO that he hopes "something good" can come from the Arizona tragedy — perhaps discussion on a new assault weapon ban, sales at gun shows and tracing measures.
As always, the New York Times is providing propaganda support for statist authoritarians. An excruciatingly moronic editorial by Gail Collins begins like this:
In 2009, Gabrielle Giffords was holding a "Congress on Your Corner" meeting at a Safeway supermarket in her district when a protester, who was waving a sign that said "Don't Tread on Me," waved a little too strenuously. The pistol he was carrying under his armpit fell out of his holster.
"It bounced. That concerned me," Rudy Ruiz, the father of one of Giffords's college interns at the time, told me then. He had been at the event and had gotten a larger vision than he had anticipated of what a career in politics entailed. "I just thought, 'What would happen if it had gone off? Could my daughter have gotten hurt?' "
This is like fretting that a truck might accidentally start driving by itself and run someone over. You can drop a Glock all day; it won't go off until you pull the trigger. But all a NY Slimes columnist knows about firearms is that lawful citizens shouldn't have them. The unsubtle attempt to associate Loughner with the Tea Party despite any evidence or likelihood of a connection is contemptible, but to be expected from the erstwhile "Paper of Record."
Collins goes on to accuse the NRA of being motivated by capitalism. What more can you expect of this sad Marxist remnant of a newspaper?

Chicago Slum-Times Story Here

June 22, 2010

BY TINA SFONDELES Staff Reporter

A bloody weekend of gun violence spilled into Monday, leaving 10 dead and nearly 60 men, women and children wounded all around the city.

Investigators tied some of the shootings in the Gresham and Englewood neighborhoods to stepped-up in-fighting among Gangster Disciple gang members.

And some of the violence on the West Side was attributed to retaliation over the slayings of three men found shot dead early Saturday in the 2300 block of South Springfield.

But the remainder of the shootings followed no pattern and were not being tied together, leaving emergency rooms busy, investigators with scores of open cases -- and national newcasts focusing on Chicago violence.

The youngest victim was a 1-year-old girl who suffered a graze wound to her neck when shots rang out at a barbecue about 12:15 a.m. Monday on the Near West Side.

The 10 dead included a man dressed in women's clothing found dead on a sidewalk in the 7500 block of South Halsted Street, two naked men found dead near railroad tracks in the 900 block of South Holland and the three men found in and around a car on South Springfield.

A Cape Girardeau mother with a gun is being credited with stopping the attempted rape of her daughter.

The Southeast Missourian reports that 51-year-old Craig Kizer faces a variety of charges, including attempted rape, armed criminal action and burglary. He has no known address and did not have an attorney.

Police say Kizer had been working on the family's home as part of a renovation project, but was not staying there. The teen was in bed around 5:30 a.m. Sunday when Kizer came into her room with a knife and climbed on top of her.

When he set the knife down on the bed, the teen grabbed it and screamed.

The girl's mother came into the room with a gun, pointed it at the suspect and ordered him out of the house. Police later arrested him.

BY FRANK MAIN Crime Reporter

More than 20 weapons have been stolen from a gun range operated by south suburban Harvey’s police department — and the State Police and federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are assisting in the efforts to recover them, officials said today.

Harvey authorities have told federal and state investigators that 21 firearms were stolen at about 9 a.m. Monday from a trailer at the range, said Tom Ahern, a spokesman for ATF.

An assault rifle like this MP5 -- and 20 other guns -- was stolen from a Harvey Police gun range, sources said.

Sandra Alvarado, spokesman for Harvey, said the city also will ask the Cook County Sheriff’s office for assistance. A message was sent to departments across the Chicago area alerting them about the burglary, she said.

The weapons included MP5 and AR-15 assault rifles, sources said, adding that some weapons were left behind.

The range is located at 153rd and Campbell — about half a mile from the Harvey Police Department’s headquarters at 15301 Dixie Highway.

The Harvey Police Department has come under scrutiny in recent years for its handling of murder investigations and for corruption convictions involving its officers.

A 2007 raid on the department by the Cook County state’s attorney’s office and other agencies uncovered untested evidence. It was processed, leading to murder and rape charges.

Last year, Officer Archie Stallworth was sentenced to 12 years in prison on a federal drug conviction. Also last year, Detective Hollis Dorrough was sentenced in Cook County Criminal Court to three years in prison for returning a gun to a gang member’s family.

URBANA - Urbana police are investigating the fatal shooting of a Champaign man who broke into an apartment in that city early Thursday.

Police Lt. Bryant Seraphin said Jerry J. Jackson, 21, of the 1200 block of West Kirby Avenue, died at Carle Foundation Hospital after being shot inside an apartment in the 2400 block of Prairie Green Drive in Urbana about 12:20 a.m.

Seraphin said Mr. Jackson was one of two men armed with guns who forced their way into the apartment, which was occupied by a 19-year-old Urbana man and his 18-year-old girlfriend from Champaign.

The male tenant began struggling with the intruders and the woman was able to get away, Seraphin said. The tenant got control over the weapon and fired several shots, striking Mr. Jackson, who collapsed there. The second intruder, who was not immediately identified, ran from the home. 

Seraphin said the male tenant was treated and released from Carle for his injuries.

Police remained at the apartment early Thursday collecting evidence.

http://homicides.redeyechicago.com/cause/gunshot/

The map here shows each place (871 since '08) in Chicago where someone was shot.  You can see the victims names and everything.  What type of firearm do you think the majority of these murders were committed with?  According to data, PISTOLS.  Yes, the dreaded handguns.  According to Daley, because of his ban, there shouldn't be any handguns in his city.  But they're used every day to murder people!

And they think they need to call in the national guard...or the latest idea is to try to sue gun manufacturers in WORLD court.  Well, why stop at the gun manufacturers?  Why not extend the lawsuits to the steel manufacturers, the foundries, the companies that make injection molds for polymer framed pistols, why not sue the individual employees who create it.  Let's not forget the ammunition manufacturers.  The lead recyclers?

Daley and his RAGER (Radical Anti-Gun Extremist) friends who own guns themselves, carry guns themselves, have armed body guards protecting themselves and their families...these elitists who think they're nobility will always blame guns.  But what about blaming knives?  If we look to England, after banning guns (subsequently followed by double the rate of crimes involving guns) this is exactly what they've done.  Then do we blame rocks, baseball bats, like the one used on the backs of the heads of those two women, any sharp or blunt object?  Do we then blame hands?

It's over.  Gun control is a failed social experiment.  We're not letting it continue in America. The other countries can ban guns as much as they want, and make the penalties as great as they want.  In America we will make sure we protect our own right to keep and bear arms and make sure that the government also protects that right.  No more of the same old tired message of blaming guns when clearly gun bans like the one in Chicago and in DC and in England and Australia DO NOT WORK!!!

WHY ISN'T MAYOR DALEY ON TV SAYING WE NEED TO BAN BASEBALL BATS?!?!

The Irish foreign-exchange student was thrilled that she landed an internship that would enable her to extend her stay in Chicago, her friends say.

The University of Illinois at Chicago graduate student, 23, had just received the news Thursday and couldn't contain her excitement over avoiding hassles with her visa status.

"We were sitting in the computer lab and she was so excited because she was able to stay in the city," said Celine Vaaler, a friend and classmate.

As the exchange student and her 24-year-old friend were returning to the friend's Bucktown neighborhood home early Friday after a night out celebrating, they were attacked from behind and struck on the back of their heads by a robber wielding a baseball bat, police said.

The attacker escaped with their purses, but one woman was able to give police a description of him before she fell unconscious, police spokesman Robert Perez said. There could have been a second attacker, police said.

A police alert described the suspect as an African-American man 27 to 34 years of age, between 5-feet-7 and 5-feet-9, with a medium complexion. He was wearing a tan or light-colored hooded sweatshirt.

The student was listed in critical condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center on Friday, while her friend, a financial adviser, was listed in serious condition at the same hospital, a spokeswoman said.

The 3:30 a.m. attack shocked the exchange student's co-workers at Butch McGuire's Irish Pub on the Gold Coast. Owner Bobby McGuire said he was dumbstruck at the brutality used on the petite woman adored by employees and customers.

"I don't understand why someone felt the need to use a baseball bat on this little girl who (is) 5 feet tall," he said.

Classmate Jim O'Connell, who raced to the hospital, was shocked and angry.

"The fact that she's so far away from her family is awful," he said. "She's an amazing person."

Residents who live near the scene of the attack -- populated with half-million-dollar homes and trendy bars -- were also taken aback by its ferocity. The beating took place in the 1800 block of North Damen Avenue next to the Churchill play lot, which has a popular dog park.

"He could have just taken their purses and run," resident Laurie Stadt said. "He didn't have to beat them."

Investigators said this was the first such bat attack in the area and wasn't part of a pattern.

Firefighters used a ladder Friday to enter one victim's second-floor apartment from outside, so her uncle could retrieve her small black dog.

"He's sick," the uncle said of the attacker.

Tribune reporter Carlos Sadovi contributed to this report.

A Turley, Oklahoma homeowner used his handgun to stop a burglar who was attacking with a sword and a gun.

Police say that a couple, including a man who had a concealed carry permit, returned to their home on the 6000 block of North Owasso, at approximately 10:00pm, to hear an unexpected noise coming from the bedroom. Upon investigating, the homeowner reportedly found a burglar, who was armed with a sword and a handgun, in the master bedroom. The burglar is said to have advanced on the homeowner, despite being warned to stop, at which point the homeowner fired one shot in self defense. Injured, the burglar fell to the ground but then tried to aim a handgun at the homeowner, at which point the homeowner fired again in self defense, fatally wounding the burglar, according to police.  Neither of the home's occupants was harmed.

Those opposed to gun ownership for self defense like to suggest that crime victims will be unable to get their self defense gun in time to stop an armed criminal.  That is simply not the case.  Here, the homeowner was able to draw his lawfully carried gun and fire in self defense, even after twice delaying his self defense efforts so as to give the intruder a chance to surrender.  Also, note that the intruder had the element of surprise, and was armed with both a gun and a sword - yet the armed law abiding citizen prevailed.

Nor is this an isolated example of citizens managing to get their gun and fire in time: This homeowner managed to get his gun from a drawer, despite the fact that a criminal held a knife to him.  This elderly man managed to grab a self defense gun, despite being shocked with a stun gun and beaten by a 24 year old man.  This man managed to draw his concealed carry handgun and shoot an armed robber in self defense, despite the fact that that robber was standing behind him and pointing a shotgun at his back.  This jewelry store owner managed to grab his gun from under a desk, despite the fact that two robbers were in his store, one of whom had a gun pointed at him.  This pawnshop manager managed to shoot an armed in self defense, saving himself and his teenage employee, despite the fact that a gun was being held to that employee’s throat.  I could go on with many more examples, but the point should be clear – armed self defense works.

You never know when you may need it -- keep it on you all the time like this guy did!
