Pregnant Woman Fatally Shot In Head In South Shore

Georgia Jackson, 72, is overcome with emotion upon learning that her two grandsons, Raheem, 19, and Dillon Jackson, 20, were found fatally shot in the South Shore neighborhood in Chicago on Thursday, March 30, 2017.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired in the 8700 block of South Saginaw Avenue and found an unresponsive 21-year-old man, police said.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said on Twitter late Thursday that the shooting was likely a gang-related retaliation for "another incident" and detectives are making "good progress". Their mother works at Nadia's and says she witnessed the carnage.

The latest shooting happened late Thursday when a vehicle pulled alongside a van in the city's South Shore neighbourhood.

Patrice L. Calvin, 26, was discovered shortly after 12 p.m. with a gunshot wound to the head in the 7500 block of South Luella, Chicago Police said.

The anguished pictures of the moment a grandmother finds out two of her grandson had been shot to death in Chicago, show the horror of this city's gun crime wave that has led to hundreds of deaths, and four killed only this incident alone. The Tribune notes that it is not immediately clear how numerous four were inside or outside the restaurant at the time of the shooting. She was four months pregnant, police said. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where his condition was stabilized, police said. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, and his condition was stabilized.
