Jesse Jackson Files: Fresh batch of Chicago gun play: 2 dead, at least 15 wounded in weekend (5/6) shootings

It wouldn�t be a weekend in Chicago without guns firing off in the Windy City. This continues to be the most under reported story in the national news. More people have been shot in Chicago than Afghanistan. And the national media ignores it.

Chicago Sun Times reports two people have been killed, and at least 15 other people � one of them a 12-year-old girl � have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday afternoon.

About 1:26 a.m. Sunday, Devon Paramore, 33, of the 8600 block of West 87th Street, was shot in the back and right armpit in the 1300 block of 13th Street and later pronounced dead at John H. Stroger Hospital of Cook County.

No one has been arrested in his slaying as of Sunday morning.

The other fatal shooting occurred at 9:09 p.m. on Friday in the city�s Far South Side Pullman neighborhood, where police said they found an unresponsive 16-year-old boy on the sidewalk in the 121000 block of South Green Street.

Donnell Rankin, of the 21700 block of South Clyde Avenue in Sauk Village, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner�s office. A Saturday autopsy found Rankin died from a gunshot wound to the neck.

Police said the shooting was gang-related, and no arrests have been made as of Saturday night.

�At least 15 other people have been wounded in shootings this weekend:

�A 12-year-old girl was struck in the left foot by gunfire in the 500 block of North Springfield Avenue at 10:30 p.m. Saturday, police said. She was taken in good condition to Mount Sinai Hospital.

No word yet if Jesse Jackson is holding protest marches in his own city.

The Last Tradition is fast becoming one of the most noted political blogs on the net. Don�t miss out on the fun and tell a friend.
