2 shot near Deneen elementary school

Chicago Breaking News (from the Chicago Tribune) reports this story:

3:34 p.m. CDT, August 22, 2012

Two people were taken to a hospital in good condition today after being shot on the South Side near an elementary school.

The shooting happened on the 7200 block of South State Street at about 3 p.m., according to Chicago Fire Department officials.

The victims were both taken to St. Bernard Hospital in good condition after receiving basic life support, fire officials said.

Chicago police were on the scene of the shooting and did not have any further information.

The shooting occurred near Deneen Elementary school, 7257 S. State St.

If you've been to State Street, you know there are definitely suspicious individuals that walk up and down that strip of stores nearby.  I am sure they have driven away much business, making the arrea even worse.  (The owner of Chan's Chinese thinks of my family as a breath of fresh air compared to some customers)

Hopefully changes can be made to make the area more vibrant and less attractive to gangbangers and loiterers.
