This afternoon the South Side endured a terrifying spate of gunfire that critically injured a victim. 

Don't get it twisted, we're not joking this tragic bit of news . . . But honestly, given so much local violence and very little political will to address the crisis . . . It seems that now locals are skipping middle-man and taking their fighting right to the grave.

There are some rumors/reports out there which claim the suspect shooter was drunk and had been told to leave. Here are the deets of the story and a roundup of the soul-crushing Friday spate of bullets . . .
