SHOOTING AT A BABY SHOWER

This was yet another example of gun violence, one among many that happen every day across America. Earlier this year, in April, another shooting took place at a baby shower in Chicago.

A family from South Seeley, in the Englewood neighborhood, was celebrating the upcoming birth of a child when two men walked up to the baby shower and opened fire over the party-goers.

The shooters then fled on foot, leaving behind at least 6 victims, including an eight-year-old boy, who was hit in the back and chest, and a ten-year-old girl, who was shot on her chin.
