Three Shot and Three Stabbed Following Gay Pride Party in Lightfoot’s Chicago

Chicago officials announced they had lined up extra security for the Pride Fest Parade this past weekend.

But it wasn’t enough.

Three people were shot and three more were stabbed on Saturday at the Gay Pride Parade and festivities in Chicago.

Block Club Chicago reported:

Three people were shot and another three stabbed in two separate incidents late Sunday and early Monday as people were still out celebrating after Chicago’s LGBTQ Pride Parade.

The shooting happened just before 1:30 a.m. in the 3100 block of North Clark Street, near the intersection of Clark, Halsted Street and Barry Avenue, according to Chicago Police.

Two men and a woman were outside when someone fired shots at them, police said. One of the men, who is 30 years old, was hit in his knee and taken in good condition to Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

The second man, 37, was shot in his leg and taken in good condition to Northwestern Hospital, police said. The woman, 46, was struck in her abdomen and taken in critical condition to Illinois Masonic.

None of the people wounded gave additional details on the incident, police said. No arrests have been made.

The stabbing happened about two hours earlier when a fight broke out at 11:27 p.m. Sunday in the 1000 block of West Belmont Avenue, police said.

A 24-year-old woman was in an argument with two women and a man that became physical, police said. The woman drew a knife and began swinging it at the other three, making contact with each of them.

A 28-year-old woman was stabbed in the chest, arm and back and listed in serious condition, police said. A 20-year-old man was in fair condition with a stab wound to the back and a 35-year-old woman was stabbed in the buttocks and in good condition.

All three victims were taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, police said.
