An officer at the scene said the gunshot victim was in good condition, but his family members “were acting a fool”.
I could hear the commotion over the police radio, and "acting a fool" was really putting it mildly.
The officer told police dispatch three carloads of the victim’s friends and relatives were on their way to West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park, Illinois. The officer told dispatch to inform Oak Park police that trouble was headed their way.
He was right.
At 1:49 a.m., a physician at West Suburban Hospital called police, because his hospital was on “red alert” and he wanted to “press charges”.
The shooters were described as two African-American men. The suspects were seen standing on a nearby corner before the victim was shot.
I have not been able to confirm if any of the shooting victim's friends or family members were arrested at West Suburban Hospital.
