4 shot at home in Burbank, IL - Welcome all you Section 8 freeloading welfare shitbirds!
Four people were shot early this morning in the backyard of a house in the 6400 block of West 86th Street in south suburban Burbank.
Officers from Burbank and several surrounding communities responded to a call of shots fired in the area of 86th Street and Narragansett Avenue at about 3:30 a.m., according to a press release issued by the Burbank police.
Officers arrived at the scene and found 9 people between the ages of 17 and 23 in a fenced-in backyard at the residence on 86th Street. Two women and two men had been shot.
According to Burbank police a 19-year-old Burbank man was shot three times, an 18-year-old Chicago man was shot twice, one of the women, also listed as a Burbank resident, was shot twice and the fourth victim, a Chicago woman, was shot once.
All four victims were taken to Advocate Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn where two were rushed into surgery, police said. The other two victims were treated and held for observation.
The gunman is described as about 19 years old and weighing 160 pounds with dark, short hair. The shooter fled on foot but police believe there may have been a car waiting for him in the area.
Police said the shootings do not appear to be a random act and were probably gang-related.
Police responded to a shooting at that same address within the past 5 months, according to the press release. The male victim from Burbank also has been involved in a similar shooting incident recently.
Burbank Police Captain Joseph Ford said the department has increased patrols in the area over the past several months due to an increase in gang activity.
“We continue to make arrests and take guns and drugs off the street, but when gangs are involved the lack of cooperation hinders our investigations into these matters,” he added.
Burbank police are requesting anyone with information concerning the shooting or other gang activity in the area to contact them at 708-924-7300.
