A man was killed and six other people were wounded in a West Pullman neighborhood mass shooting early Sunday on the Far South Side.

Cousin: Man slain in mass shooting died ‘protecting the kids’ – Chicago Sun

The latest mass shooting in the city happened late Tuesday in Bronzeville just two blocks or so from what one would think to be a safe zone: the Chicago Police Department Headquarters at 3510 S. Michigan Ave.

While Alfred Mitchell Jr. and others were outside barbecuing shortly after 10:30 p.m., a group of men walked up and fired shots from the corner of East 37th Place near South Michigan Avenue.

Mitchell, 28, was killed. Six others, ranging in age from 46 to 21, were wounded.

“People were just outside kicking it,” said Mitchell’s cousin, who asked to remain anonymous. “He was just out here barbecuing when it happened.”

Mitchell’s cousin described Mitchell as a “cool” person who shielded children attending the barbecue from the hail of bullets.

6 injured, 1 killed in Bronzeville mass shooting – Chicago Tribune

A mass shooting in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the city’s South Side left a 28-year-old man dead and injured six others late Tuesday, authorities said. 

Several gunmen came up to a crowd of people standing on the sidewalk near the corner of East 37th Street and South Michigan Place just before 10:40 p.m. and began shooting, police said.

A large family and neighbors were standing outside for a barbecue when the bullets started flying, said a relative of the injured who came to the crime scene. Kids were running with hot dogs in their hands and older family members were hanging out when the gunmen opened fire, he said.

The mass shooting brings to 11 the number of people shot in about six hours from Tuesday night to Wednesday morning, police said. In a separate shooting, a 48-year-old man was fatally shot on the West Side, police said.
