“Bodies Everywhere:” At Least 16 Shot at Chicago Funeral Home

Several people were shot in what appears to have been a mass shooting at a funeral home in Chicago on Tuesday night.

Chicago police are initially reporting that at least 16 people have been shot in what may be a mass casualty event.

Preliminary reports suggest that the funeral had been for the victim of an earlier shooting in Chicago.

All we saw was just bodies laying everywhere,” witness Arnita Gerder told NBC Chicago. “Shot up everywhere, all over. Legs, stomach, back, all over the place. We thought it was a war out here.

Gun violence and crime has skyrocketed in the city of Chicago, as the city’s Democratic mayor largely dismisses criticism from the Trump administration over her leadership. 63 people were shot, 12 fatally, over the weekend, with shooting figures on previous weekends breaking records for violence in the city’s history.

The story is developing, and Big League Politics is continuing the monitor the situation.
