The victims range in age from 23 to 52 years old. Four other victims between the two shootings were also boys under 18.

At a news conference, CPD Superintendent David Brown said the department needs the public’s help.

“We are in a battle for the heart and souls of these communities,” Brown said, adding that CPD needs people to come forward with information in order to further investigations and make arrests.

“Many of the victim’s from last night’s shootings are not cooperating,” Brown said.

Chicago’s top cop said the silence helps the perpetrators, which is why CPD is asking for people to speak up.

“The offenders get more emboldened. They think they got away with something. And they are encouraged to do it again,” Brown said.

In Lawndale Wednesday night, a 14-year-old boy was killed and nine other people were wounded between two mass shootings, which happened three blocks and five minutes apart.

Police said the 14-year-old is in good condition at an area hospital.
