    CHICAGO — Five people were shot as spectators left a crowded high school basketball game Friday in what police called a possibly gang-related drive-by attack that sent panicked students running into a snowy street on the city's South Side.


    Five males — three in serious condition and two in critical — were taken from Paul Laurence Dunbar Vocational Career Academy around 8 p.m., said Chicago Fire Department spokeswoman Eve Rodriguez. Hospital spokespeople said later that at least three were expected to be treated and released.
    "It was crazy. It was like killers on the loose," said Joshua Glaze, 15, a freshman at the school.
    The game was in overtime and some students began to leave the building, Glaze said.
    A vehicle then drove up and a person or people inside started shooting into the crowd, said Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis.
    No suspect has been identified or arrested, but the shooting was "isolated" and possibly gang-related, Weis said. Two hundred officers were in the area looking for suspects, he said.
    Dunbar freshman Shaneisha Turman, 15, said she saw a silver truck pull up to a bus stop outside the school. People inside the truck pretended to fire a gun and then "they really started shooting," she told the Chicago Tribune.
    People were shouting, "'They're shooting!"' Turman said. "It was a lot of people shouting and running."
    Police blocked access to streets at least two blocks from the high school to make way for ambulances and police cars.
    Andres Durbak, director of the city schools' Office of Safety and Security, said video taken in and around the school has been handed over to police.
    "This is a tragedy," Durbak said.
    Police spokeswoman Monique Bond declined to characterize the victims beyond gender and would not say whether they had attended the basketball game. She added that they were "not necessarily students."
    The high school has about 1,600 students and is the alma mater of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson.

    Does anyone see political correctness taking over in this statement? What if I'm in Chicago and I should be on the lookout for a silver truck with several Asian men or kids in it opening fire on anyone they see because they're on a dare from their gang? My point is that the description is necessary for the people of the community to know who is out there shooting, andmight help someone who knows them turn them in. Chicago sucks!

    And what the hell does this have to do with anything? Who cares?
    I will not knowingly initiate force. I am a self owner.

    Let the record show that I did not consent to be governed. I did not consent to any constitution. I did not consent to any president. I did not consent to any law except the natural law of "mala en se." I did not consent to the police. Nor any tax. Nor any prohibition of anything. Nor any regulation or licensing of any kind.

    They're trying to make it sound like a more respectable place by attaching celebrity to it.I am not personally familiar with this area, it may be quite nice, but it sounds like the gangsare running things there now, or trying to take over. Not all celebrities come from Paris Hilton's background, some come from some real s$#@ holes.

    Jennifer Hudson's family was murdered not too long ago. Hudson was a contestant on American Idol a few seasons back...didn't win but came pretty close. She's one of those celebs that Gordie is referring to that had humble beginnings, to say the least.

    I think the Brady Bunch is behind this. So they can illustrate the need for more stringent gun laws. "If we can just pass enough gun laws, gun crimes will no longer occur."

    There's no such thing as "gun crimes" sinceonly people commitcrimes.

    I know exactly where this is: 3000 South Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive. It is near the site of the annual Bud Billiken Parade. My Father (rest his soul) graduated from this school when it was called Dunbar Vocational High School.

    This neighborhood is just like any other South-side neighborhood.......rough as hell!! When I go home, all I do is pray that nothing crazy happens while I am there. It amazes me that the Mayor really believes that the gun ban will stand when he has nothing that can prove a gun crime will not happen since guns have been banned since 1982. What a joke!!

    2nd Amendment........Use it.........Or, lose it!!:X
    The 2nd Amendment... brought to you by Beretta and the number 1791!!

    This is how I read it, .40 Cal
    "Fault always lies in the same place, my fine babies: with him weak enough to lay blame." - Cort

    Gun control is like trying to reduce Drunk Driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

    Sentio aliquos togatos contra me conspirare.

    The answer to "1984" is "
    1776"

    With freedom comes much responsibility. It is for this reason so many are loathe to exercise it.
