‘We Thought It Was a War Out There’ — 15 Shot at Funeral for Chicago Shooting Victim

A funeral for a shooting victim killed last week on the streets of Chicago had dozens of mourners paying their last respects to the deceased.

As the crowd was leaving the funeral home, a car sped by pouring automatic weapons fire into the mourners. Some of them returned fire. When the smoke cleared, at least 15 people lay on the ground calling for help.

Mass shootings used to make headlines around the country. But in 2020 in Chicago, it’s becoming all too commonplace.
