Two unfortunate local stories that ocurred on Christmas

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas unfortunately for the day after I wanted to share with you some sad stories that occurred on Christmas Day that happened locally. To start there was a shooting in Chatham.
A brief excerpt of what happened.
A man was fatally shot on the South Side a little after midnight on Christmas Day, authorities said.

He was standing on the sidewalk in the 8100 block of South Wabash Avenue in Chatham when two people came up to him and fired shot, hitting him in the head and chest about 12:15 a.m. Monday. The man was taken to St. Bernard Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

He was identified as Albert Abu, 57, who lived in the same block where he was killed, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He was pronounced dead at 12:28 a.m. Monday.
To which I must add that, Jahmal Cole's My Block My Hood My City ig noted this on a post he made on Xmas day.

The second story I want to share with you is probably more sad. In the early morning hours a family was displaced from their home on Xmas Day. As you will see in the video from CBS 2 below, some families weren't even able to open their presents. The fire took place on 104th & State in Roseland other news sources referred to this area as Fernwood. [VIDEO]
On Christmas one man lost his life in a senseless murder and another family or families were displaced by a fire from their home. The holiday season is always a time to count your blessings. Here's hoping your holidays were filled with the acknowledgement of your blessings.
