Boys, 14 and 15, shot in Marquette Park neighborhood


A pair of gunmen opened fire on two teenage boys, seriously injuring them Wednesday night in the Marquette Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side, authorities said.

The victims, ages 14 and 15, were wounded in the 6500 block of South California Avenue at about 9:15 p.m., according to Chicago police and fire officials.

They were standing on a sidewalk when the gunmen approached and shot the teens before fleeing on foot, said Officer Hector Alfaro, a police spokesman.

The 14-year-old, who was struck in the chest and hip, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, while the older teen was taken to John H. Stroger Hospital.

Both were taken in serious-to-critical condition, but their conditions had stabilized, police said.

"used to be a nice neighborhood", once upon a time.

The coloreds owe reparations to the white man.

why post the photo of Collin, a convicted child molester? Instead, please post a post of Dr. martin Luther King Jr., a great civil rights leader and defender of the working man.

I grew up in the 50's & 60's in Gage Park. We liked to ride out bikes to Marquette Park. Then in the 70's were were detailed to 71St by Frank's place. All Frank was trying do is keep a good neighborhood from the ghetto blacks. I feel sorry for the Lithuanian folks that lost their nice neighborhood to the ghetto black from the east side.

It's not only Marquette Park , many of us grew up in St. Sabinas,
St. Tommy Moore , Visitation Parish, and all nice working class areas were destroyed by the colored people .

I remember the old white party hotline was 776 1020 where they would have a different recording every day and it would end with the address 2919 west 71st street in white Chicago,

They always had great literature there, the old "Boat tickets to Africa" were the best

God I miss the good old days, now go get your shine box nigger

I grew up in that neighborhood, went to school and still own property in Brighton Park. I have to say the cops did shit to help those areas keep the crime away. They were busy sleeping in their cars under viaducts, bullshitting around at the station on 63rd and St Louis or fucking with the white kids driving around Marquette Park. When you needed them it took two fucking hours to get them out only to have them act like the garage that just got broken into or the car that got stolen was a waste of their time. Just like when I get my bags at Midway baggage claim always the fat fuck cop texting and leaning over the counter barely able to hold up his gun belt being the ambassador of crime prevention in this city. White people never woke the fuck up and stood up for their neighborhoods and the cops just took a nap and got their paychecks.

First the beaners moved in, the shitheads took over. They started opening Amvets on Kedzie bringing in the shit, just like they are doing now on 111th and Kedzie, opening a thrift shop called "New B 4". This fucking place has got to be a front from some black movement, their is no way they can pay the rent selling the shit that I saw in the windows. Fucking shitheads are pulling the same shit now with that fucked up store front eyesoar of shit. I know I seen shitheads entering and leaving at night but I hav yet to see 1 person enter that store to buy something and I pass by there regularly.

Does anyone else have any info on who is renting that Englewood looking garage sale on 111th N Kedzie (Southwest corner) ??
