Chicago police issue bulletin on gangs, high-powered weapons

Chicago shooting leaves 2 dead at memorial for murder victim

"The wake-up call has been here and it's time for us to act", Lopez added.

The occupants of the Nissan Murano as well as another gang vehicle - a red van - noticed the black van following them and believed them to be rival gang members, prosecutors said.

Murphy said Gomez, kept pace with the officers' van even after bullets pierced the van's gas tank, draining out the fuel and causing the van to slow.

On Tuesday, two Deering District tactical officers were shot in the neighboring Back of the Yards neighborhood.

As of this writing, there are no suspects in custody for either shooting.

Authorities said more arrests are expected soon and Johnson had a message for the suspects that remain on the loose.

The driver and the shooter fled to 38th and Racine in the Bridgeport neighborhood, where they ditched the minivan, which had several flat tires.

Bystanders said they ran for cover when the shots rang out at the memorial for Cardova Sunday evening. They have both been released from the hospital and are recovering from their injuries.

"It's not like the van was throwing up gang signs at them or pointing weapons at them", Chicago P.D. Commander Brendan Deenihan said.

Navarro said two masked men carrying assault rifles came out of an alley and open fired on the group at the memorial, killing one man about 25 who was dead on the scene, and a 29-year-old woman who died of her wounds at Stroger Hospital, Eight additional people, majority adults, were taken to area hospitals where their wounds were treated, police officials said. A police K-9 unit later recovered the rifle stashed near railroad tracks in a small lot nearby. The victims, two of whom died, were attending a memorial for a person shot and killed that day in the Brighton Park neighborhood on the southwest side. "And right now we're trying to saturate the area to make sure nothing else happens tonight or in the next couple days".

In investigating the earlier shooting, police identified the individuals in the vehicle as members of La Raza, Deenihan said.

"The city deserves to know where these guns are coming from and where they were purchased", said Holmes.

The shooting at the memorial occurred in Brighton Park around 5:20 pm.

The family of a black 15-year-old teenager is suing the white police officer who shot and killed him, as well as the officer's suburban Dallas police department. The wounded police officers radioed for help, drawing squad cars- and the curious La Raza members in the Murano- to the intersection of 43rd and Ashland.
