13 Injured in Chicago Shooting; 3-Year-Old Shot in Face

From CNN:
An assault-style rifle with a high-capacity magazine was used in Thursday night's shooting that injured 13 people in a park on Chicago's South Side, and the shooting appears to be gang-related, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry F. McCarthy told reporters Friday. All of the injuries are non-life-threatening, McCarthy said

A Chicago grandmother pleads for a respite as the television cameras roll: "Y'all out here killing these innocent people, kids, parents, grandparents, mothers, fathers: It's got to stop. You need to stop."

Semehca Nunn's grandson was in the hospital after being shot in the head Thursday night. In all 13 people were shot at a park in the city's South Side.

Except for the boy, Deonta Howard, none of the other victims were listed in critical condition, but that fact offered little relief.

Once again, Chicago is in the spotlight over gun violence; a reminder that it is the city with the highest number of homicides in the country.
