    Sunday in Chicago was marked by a harrowing wave of violence, as two separate mass shootings unfolded, one on the North Side and the other on the South Side.

    In the tragic incident in Auburn Gresham, three lives were lost, including that of a teenager, in a scene described as horrific within a residence along the 8000 block of South Vincennes Avenue. The shooting occurred shortly after 7:30 p.m., when gunfire erupted, leaving four individuals wounded.

    Among the victims was a 14-year-old, who was swiftly transported to Comer Children’s Hospital but tragically succumbed to their injuries. Additionally, two adults, one of whom was 20 years old, lost their lives in the onslaught. Another individual sustained injuries and was rushed to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where they are expected to recover, according to police reports.

    The 14-year-old victim has been identified as Amere P. Deese, while the 20-year-old victim is identified as Ladeverett West Ringgold. Reports from the scene revealed that although the victims shared a connection, they were not immediate family members.

    This mass shooting marks the second tragedy to unfold within just four hours, adding to the distressing toll on the city of Chicago. Victim advocate Donovan Price, reflecting on the turmoil, expressed the confusion and anguish gripping the affected families. He underscored the alarming reality that such violence knows no bounds, permeating communities across the city.

    The incident on the South Side followed closely on the heels of another mass shooting in Rogers Park earlier in the day. In that instance, one woman lost her life, while three others sustained injuries during the gunfire outbreak within Pottawattomie Park.
