Chicago M Shooting – A Daycare Worker Recorded the Moment She Heard the Gunshots
Gunfire erupted and turned the Fourth of July parade in Chicago into chaos. As the siren wailed, children ran to the side of the road, fleeing for safety. The moment that she heard the gunshots, a daycare worker captured it. Despite the trauma and shock of the event, Martinez-Vicencio managed to recover in time to save her daughter Nina. She ran over to her daughter, shielding her from the bullets, and the two were quickly pushed into a sporting goods store, which had been Uncle Dan’s.
Police and emergency units were already on the scene, due to the parade. Joseph O’Neill, police commissioner, stated that emergency units were trained to respond quickly. The problem has been addressed by police and city officials. The shooting has sparked debate about gun control laws. Both sides of the political spectrum argue that allowing people to own guns does not contribute to mass shootings. But there is hope for Chicago. In a statement issued on Monday, President Obama praised the efforts of the City of Chicago and commended the Chicago police department for bringing the situation to justice.
The Chicago police department is investigating the motive behind the gunshots, although the investigation is still ongoing. Five people were killed in the shooting that left hundreds homeless. Many were injured, including children and seniors. According to reports, a father threw his son in a dumpster to protect his family. Others scrambled to protect their families from the gunfire. YouTube has a video of the shooting.
The police, on the other hand, are clearly attempting to herd community members behind a cordon. They shout at civilian witnesses, refusing to identify the shooter. A red-shirted man wearing a knapsack and trying to engage with police, an eyewitness, attempts to confront them but is stopped by the police. Only after the police tape is removed do medics appear, and the body of Augustus is laid out for the public.
Despite the police officer’s claims, the video shows the incident in vivid detail. The Chicago police department and the Civilian Office of Police Accountability are investigating the incident. A 13-year-old boy was left paralysed by the shooting. The officer fired three shots after the boy bailed out of a car he thought was stolen. The officer captured the boy turning, slowing down, and raising his hands just before the fatal encounter.
The suspect was identified by Robert E. Crimo III (22-year-old suburban resident). Crimo was apprehended by police without incident. After initiating a traffic stop, Crimo fled the scene. The incident took place outside a McDonald’s on the city’s Magnificent Mile shopping district. Police say he had a Glock with an extended magazine. The shooter is suspected of killing at least two people and wounding nine others.
