Faith leaders, police call for peace after gunman wounds 6 after funeral


Some have no shame. Faith leaders and Chicago police called for peace Tuesday after a gunman wounded six people after a South Side funeral on Monday. Many in the Burnside neighborhood were still in disbelief over the brutal nature of the attack. A gunman opened fire on a crowd leaving a funeral at the Bethlehem Star Missionary Baptist Church near 92nd Street and Cottage Grove Avenue Monday around noon. No one was killed, but six were wounded. One man was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the head in critical condition. Neighbors told WGN News they heard at least 40 or 50 gunshots. Some said it was like a scene out of a movie.
