A news report from Lorraine Swanson, Lake Effect News
In an all too familiar scene that is being played out across city neighborhoods in Chicago’s bucket-of-blood summer, this time it was Uptown’s turn to gather in front of street shrine of holy candles and stuffed animals for a murdered neighbor.
More than a hundred residents turned out for an uneasy peace vigil on the 4500 block of North Magnolia on Friday evening where a 21-year-old man was shot to death earlier this week.
Aaron Carter was gunned down around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, along with a 27-year-old man who was shot in the legs, according to published reports. Carter, who grew up on Magnolia, was pronounced dead early the next morning at Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital.
