Lightfoot continued to deny any help from the federal government to help break the cycle of violence Tuesday night; saying she will never allow “Donald Trump’s troops” to “terrorize her residents.”
“Under no circumstances will I allow Donald Trump’s troops to come to Chicago and terrorize our residents,” said Lightfoot.
At least 15 people were shot and injured outside a Chicago funeral home Tuesday night, with the victims ranging in age between 21 and 65.
“There were 10 female victims and five male victims, according to an update from Chicago police early Wednesday morning. The victims range in age from 21 to 65 years old. Police said at least six people are in serious condition Wednesday morning,” reports CBS Chicago.
“The attendees of the funeral began firing back at the vehicle, which turned north on Carpenter Street and kept firing at people from the funeral before crashing into a parked car midway down the block,” adds the website.
