"At 7:40 p.m., in the 100 block of North Keeler, a 38-year-old man and a 39-year-old man were on the sidewalk, when someone shot both of them," CBS News reported.
"The younger man was shot in the right leg, and was taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition. The older man was shot in the head, and was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition," it noted.
The Chicago Sun-Times keeps an updated list of homicide victims in the area. So far, 505 homicides have been recorded in the city in 2023. In 2022, 692 homicides were recorded.
The ongoing violence continues to serve as as top problem for the city and its leaders. The mayor has claimed a crackdown on crime among his top priorities but little change has been seen so far in stopping the city's shootings.
The pattern has led to many concerns for residents living in the city as well as for businesses that rely on tourists who are growing concerned over visiting Chicago over its ongoing criminal activities, including shootings and other crimes on its streets under the leadership of Democrats who have yet to put a stop to the city's chaos.
