Two shot were 5- and 7-year-old boys.Eight people were shot -- one fatally -- in a drive-by shooting in which two men fired on a group of people at a home in the Lawndale neighborhood Saturday evening, authorities said. At least one of the shooters used a rifle and casings were recovered at the scene, police said. At least 67 people have been shot across the city since Wednesday afternoon this long holiday weekend, 11 fatally.
If we had special legislation (like hate-crime legislation) to cover drive-by shootings or shooting into a crowd that carried a life sentence, I think these drive-by shootings would stop.
Innocents are dying. What we're doing is obviously not working. Get these animals off the streets for good, I say.
