Another day of shootings in the Windy City has left one person dead, one arrested and twelve people shot, including a Chicago police captain.
Capt. Edward Kulbida, 58, and with the department for nearly 30 years, was in serious condition after being shot in the shoulder and grazed in the head. He was expected to survive, according to hospital and police officials.
He was hit as Chicago police and federal agents attempted to arrest a suspect in a shooting and carjacking over the weekend in Indianapolis that left three people injured. Gunfire was exchanged and police finally stormed the apartment in the 7200 block of South Lowe Avenue around 11:30 p.m., finding one man dead from an apparent gunshot and taking another man in custody.
The identity of the 42-year-old dead man was not released, but the other man was identified as the suspect from Indiana, Daniel P. Brown. At least one gun was recovered, police said.
As police Superintendent Garry McCarthy announced the end of the standoff to reporters huddled along 71st Street, a group of three or four women broke into sobs.
“They … killed him!” one of them shouted.
Other shootings around the city occurred on the South and West ends, and involved three teen boys and a 16-year-old girl all taking bullets.
No report as of yet when the streets will admit that enough is enough.
