3 shot during ‘Peace in the Hood’ basketball tournament


The saga continues in Chicago. Nobody is surprised anymore. The cowards with guns strike again. Police say a "person of interest" is in custody after a fight ended in gunfire in a Near North Side park Saturday, leaving one man in critical condition and injuring two men helping out at an anti-violence basketball tournament nearby. "It’s sad. It just hurts my heart,” said Ald. Walter Burnett (27th Ward), who supported the "Peace in the Hood" tournament and grew up in nearby Cabrini Green. The all-day event was beginning to wrap up around 6 p.m. Saturday when a fight broke out between three two four young men, believed to be between the ages of 15 and 20, nearby in Seward Park. Then police say "one to three" of them fired shots.
