More Chicago gangs arming themselves with rifles as alliances spread conflict

Aunts and other relatives lived near her first apartment at 45th and Wood streets. That’s the corner where the Saints trace their origins in the 1960s as a mostly Polish gang. Their territory extends out about two blocks in each direction.

Toward the end of the 26 days, more than 200 people gathered at 47th Street and Damen Avenue for the first of what Marina Alonso hoped would be an annual Christmas tree lighting in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

For decades, the Saints were “renegades,” not aligning with the People or Folk nations that most gangs belonged to. They fought with everyone, though their main rival has been the La Raza gang on 48th Street east of Ashland.

The day of the meeting, young men inside a white SUV and a red van traded rifle fire as they careened down Cermak Road west of Leavitt, about half a mile from the school. They crashed into other vehicles and their errant rounds hit a 67-year-old man and 48-year-old woman, wounding them.

Ruiz is a red-brick elementary school at 24th and Leavitt streets, named for an officer killed in 1988 trying to stop a school shooting. It sits two blocks south of Cermak Road in territory long claimed by Satan Disciples.

    Chicago gangs arm themselves with rifles as alliances spread conflict
    One late afternoon over Labor Day weekend in 2016, near the arches welcoming truck drivers into the old stockyards south of Bridgeport, a gunman in a red minivan leveled a rifle and fired at a motorcyclist. The gunman hit the bike but not the driver.
