  1. Oh My God! Do we know if the parties involved knew each other? I certainly hope so otherwise this is straight up terrifying! Strange that four motorcyclists shooting only hit one person in the arm.

  2. Why is it necessary to identify Lake View High School in this post when it has nothing to do with the incident? It should just be identified as Ashland and Irving Park.
