The Shooting of Lighting Memorial on 75th Street


At least five people were wounded in a shooting about 8:15 p.m. in the 500 block of East 75th Street in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood, according to a police media notification. One other person may have been shot and another person suffered a leg injury that wasn't a gunshot, police said.

The shooting happened inside Chicago Wingz Around the World, at St. Lawrence Avenue and 75th Street, according to people at the scene. A crowd was gathered inside the restaurant for a vigil meal for Jamayah Fields, 20, killed early Monday near a West Garfield Park elementary school. The vigil was targeted by members of a rival gang because of someone who was there who was among those wounded, a source said. The close quarters of the restaurant led to multiple people being wounded. It was not certain whether the shooting was a drive-by or if the shooter was on foot. Read more here.
