There were at least 14 people shot by unknown suspects at about 6:30pm, in a drive-by shooting at a funeral. The victims were walking from inside the funeral when gunfire started; coincidently, the funeral was for a person who had been killed in Chicago in a shooting last week.
Later in the evening, another shooting hit two men, killing one. The first victim was a 32-year-old man who is reportedly in fair condition, the second victim was a 30 year old man who was shot in the chest, and died as a result. The two men were reportedly sitting on a porch when shot.
Yet another drive-shooting occurred after that one, this time killing a 28-year-old man, who was shot in the chest.
