Chicago shooting among bloodiest in modern Chicago history: report

The mass shooting on Tuesday outside a Chicago funeral home that injured 14 was reportedly among the bloodiest in the city’s modern history, a report said.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that in 2013, there was a mass shooting that resulted in 13 injuries. In 2019, police said a man opened fire inside a house during a party that injured 13.

The paper reported that this is not the first time gunmen targeted a funeral in the city and pointed to a funeral back in 2012 where a 21-year-old was killed when gunshots rang out in front of the church, which the paper said sent hundreds running for cover.

CBS Chicago, citing unnamed sources, reported that police assigned a squad car at the funeral service after being warned about possible violence.

Police did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News for comment.
