At least two people were killed and 11 others wounded in violence across Chicago overnight, most of the victims from just two shootings on the West and South sides, according to police.

Suspects were being questioned in one of the shootings, the killing of a man near his home on the Far South Side, officials said.

The worst shooting occurred around 6 p.m. Thursday when two men in hooded sweatshirts opened fire inside a convenience store in the 1400 block of West 79th Street in the Gresham neighborhood, police said.

One man was killed and five others were wounded. The victims ranged in age from 16 to 24.

    They really need to bring in the National Guard to protective people in Chicago.  This is a war between gangs and need to be treated as such. The police are afraid I believe, because the gang bangers have guns better then they do. They can not protect the city alone, they really need to get back up help. People are afraid to snitch because of families.

    Hey Roland…time to get your hoodie back at…and let’s make sure Al, Jesse and the President show the same outrage for these shootings as they have the Martin / Zimmerman situation. Oh, there’s no opportunity to turn this into a racially charged event?  I’m sorry.
