CPD’s Johnson: 7 South Shore murders not random acts of violence

Chicago Sun Times

Calling the seven homicides within a 12-hour span in South Shore on Thursday “deplorable,” Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson vowed Friday afternoon to “utilize the full weight” of police resources to find those responsible.

No one was in custody for any of the shootings — including a quadruple homicide that occurred in and just outside a restaurant — though police officials said detectives were working “around the clock” and making progress.
