Nine people were killed and at least 30 others were wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday night and Monday morning.
The weekend’s latest fatal shooting happened about 12:10 a.m. Monday in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood on the Southwest Side. A 26-year-old man was standing next to a car in the 3000 block of West 60th Street when a tan vehicle drove by westbound and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago Police. The man suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene. The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not provided information on the fatality.
Three people were killed in a Sunday evening shooting in the East Side neighborhood on the Far South Side. Narcisco Ledesman, 22 of North Austin; 17-year-old Antonio J. Lopez of East Chicago, Ind.; and a 24-year-old woman all suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the body at 5:30 p.m. in the 10200 block of South Ewing and pronounced dead at the scene, according to police and the medical examiner’s office. The woman’s name has not been released.
A police source said a man with a valid Firearm Owner’s Identification card shot the three people after they broke into his home. Area South detectives were investigating the shooting as a suspected burglary, the source said.
About 11:20 a.m. Sunday, Emmanuel Fleming, 34, and 46-year-old Michael Swift were killed in a shooting in the West Side Austin neighborhood. The men were standing at 11:19 a.m. in the 200 block of South Laramie when two people walked up and fired shots at the younger man, authorities said. Both men suffered gunshot wounds to their bodies. The shooters then drove away southbound in a silver or gray SUV.
Fleming was taken to Stroger Hospital, while Swift was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, authorities said. They were both pronounced dead less than an hour later. Fleming lived in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side, and Swift lived in the West Garfield Park neighborhood. Deputy Chief Al Nagode said one of the victims was believed to be a member of a nearby church.
When protesters, angry over the deadly incidents in Virginia this weekend, decided to take down a nearly century-old statue of a Confederate soldier in North Carolina on Monday, law enforcement stood back and watched.
At no time did officers with the Durham Police Department or deputies with the Durham County Sheriff’s Office intervene as activists brought a ladder up to the statue and used a rope to pull it down, according to multiple media reports.
No one was arrested Monday, however, a day later, Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews announced investigators were working to identify the protesters and planned to bring criminal charges against them.
“We decided that restraint and public safety would be our priority,” Andrews said in a statement posted on his agency’s website. “As the Sheriff, I am not blind to the offensive conduct of some demonstrators nor will I ignore their criminal conduct.”
He continued: “My deputies showed great restraint and respect for the constitutional rights of the group expressing their anger and disgust for recent events in our country. Racism and incivility have no place in our country or Durham.”
Calls seeking additional comment were not immediately returned Tuesday.
The Confederate Soldiers Monument in Durham was dedicated in 1924 and shows a soldier holding a rifle. After it came down, a diverse crowd of dozens cheered, and some even began kicking the crumpled bronze monument.
