Once again, Chicago was affected by another mass shooting taking place in the Democrat-controlled city on Wednesday night.

Police reports show that a large group gathered outside around 11:30 p.m. as a car drove by and shot several people near the location of South Parnell and 85th street, CBS Chicago reported.
Victims Identified but Investigation Still Underway
Identities of two of the victims have been released showing two men, a 29-year-old and a 37-year-old are in critical condition receiving medical treatment at the University of Chicago Medical.
Other shooting victims are also being treated at the same hospital with the youngest being just 17-years-old.
There have not been any arrests and no reports of possible suspects as of yet. Police are still investigating the horrific incident.
Chicago Continues to Go up In Flames
Chicago has crumbled under Democrat leadership and gun violence has skyrocketed even though it has some of the strictest gun-control laws in the nation.
Children are being murdered, shot and abused in these Democrat-run cities but the Black Lives Matter movement refuses to use their platform to speak out against any of it.

The atrocities that are occurring in the black community are being glossed over and ignored by BLM, top politicians and the media.
On May 25th, riots took over the country by storm after the death of George Floyd. Black businesses, properties and lives have been destroyed by the hateful movement but their tyrannical actions continue to be tolerated and even pushed by the left.
When is the Violence Going to Get Under Control?
There is a common theme when it comes to leftist-run cities in the United States. For instance, in July Georgia’s Governor Brian Kemp declared a state of emergency in his city of Atlanta after violence overtook the city.
A thousand National Guardsmen were sent to the state’s capital after BLM mobs took the life of a little girl in yet another shooting incident.
“You can’t blame this on a police officer; you can’t say this is about criminal justice reform,” the city’s Democrat mayor. “This is about some people carrying some weapons who shot up a car with an 8-year-old baby. We are doing each other more harm than any police officer on this force.”
Investigations are still underway in the recent Chicago mass shooting, but one thing, unfortunately, seems certain: this certainly won’t be the last mass shooting we see in Democrat-controlled areas.
