Man fatally shot by police in South Shore

A man in his 20s was fatally shot in the 2100 block of East 74th Street late Friday in South Shore.

Officers were on patrol about 10:10 p.m. when they responded to a call of shots fired near East 71st Street and South Paxton Avenue.

    now here comes the fake outrage from the "black lives matter" morons...

  • Chilly Willie 73rd, life time resident

    Dr. Magic looks like you jumped the gun on this one. The young man that was shot was in the wrong and the results ended with his death, sorry to say. The "Black Lives Matters" champagne and movement is based off police injustice toward black not a dude that was in the wrong & thought he was bullet proof. This event played out steps from my front door so, yes I know all of the facts.

Good afternoon family,

It hs been a while since I have been on here. How is everyone? Mr. Magic my deepest sympathy to you I understand how it is to lose a parent. I lost my father in law 5 years ago. He and I were really close.

so we have a new alderman. I am ok with that. I will try and work with him. We also have a 7th ward chamber of commerce to deal with the problems in the community. Can you all let me know of any summer programs happening in the the Ward. Our group is excited and we are in need of the 7th ward to stand together.

  • Charon Bryson 7th Ward Republican Committeeman

    I am running for Republican committeeman in the next six months. I am building my campaign now and I am ready to show the ward what our people were at in the beginning I am nothing like our governor we have too much to lose

    Thanks for your comment Claudette. Celebrating Rahm supporters have begun wiping that yellow stuff off their faces that they thought was rain, but was pee. They are doomed to that wiping process for the next four years. But there is a silver lining in this cloud: I'm proud of Seventh Ward voters who sent the Rahm appointed alderman packing and installed a young man who will stand on his own two feet. As for Chuy, congratulations on a brave run. You fought the good fight. The Fire Next Time!
