Five killed in shootings on Chicago's South Side

Chicago police say four people have been found fatally shot in or near a restaurant located on the city's South Side.

Authorities are investigating a quadruple homicide at a fast-food restaurant and the fatal shooting of a pregnant woman in separate incidents that occurred within hours of each other Thursday in one neighborhood in the nation's third-largest city.

Patrice L Calvin was discovered shot in the head at around noon in an apartment in the 7500 block of S. Luella Ave., police and the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office said.

At 6:22 a.m. Saturday, officers responded to a report of a burglary and found a 34-year-old man in the doorway of a home in the 11700 block of South Normal in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side.

The shooting took place inside and outside a restaurant near 75 and Coles Ave in the South Shore neighborhood.

According to The Root, the shooting is believed to have been gang-related, but the investigation is still underway.

The South Shore neighborhood will be saturated with police until suspects are brought into custody, Johnson said. About 12:30 a.m., he was at a stop light heading east in the 1400 block of West 83rd Street when another auto pulled up and someone inside it opened fire, police said. Police also point to the victims' social media presence in which they discuss gang affiliations and are depicted with guns, drugs and cash.

Georgia Jackson, 72, appeared distraught upon learning that her grandsons, Raheem, 19, and Dillon Jackson, 20, were found fatally shot near Nadia Fish and Chicken, in the South Shore neighborhood.

"I just want them to pick him up. when they get him off the ground I'll go with him", Georgia Jackson said. "Crazy. Something is wrong". "I can't leave. I gotta stay with both my sons 'til they get 'em up", she said. "I'm "bout to ... kill myself", their mother told the Chicago Tribune as she wept, still wearing a red apron from her job at the restaurant as her sons" bodies lay nearby. He had been shot in the head and buttocks and was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:09 a.m., police and the medical examiner's office said.

As Johnson and other police officials spoke to reporters Friday, family and friends of Emmanuel C. Stokes, 28, and Edwin Davis, 32, gathered.
