    Police: 13 people shot at house party in Chicago

    CHICAGO (AP) — A shooting at a house party early Sunday on Chicago's South Side wounded 13 people, four of them critically, Chicago police said.
    The shooting stemmed from a dispute at a house party that was “given in memorial of a subject slain in April,” Chief of Patrol Fred Waller said. He said shots were first fired just after 12:30 a.m.

    Hmm... aren't most shootings "isolated incidents"?

    A shooting in Chicago? In other shocking news, my cats are still insane today.

    Isolated to where such shootings are expected, most likely.

    Or a serial shooter. I suppose that a "dispute" which involved the shooting of 13 people might be considered at least a battle.

    "Waller described the shooting as an “isolated incident.”.....
    Here's a bit more detail that brings the scene and chaos to life:

    (Chicago Tribune) 13 shot at Chicago memorial party; police questioning 2 they say were ‘shooting randomly at people’ as they were leaving

    It is not uncommon for the violence of the original earlier crime(s) to re-ignite or spillover into the funerals & memorials given later. This has been happening since the turn-of-the-century with the old Irish & Italian gangs, and now seems to be part & parcel of today's Mexican & African-American gangs. It's basically the same dynamics, but different players - often driven by the spoils of a different prohibition (drugs vs alcohol).

    It is why I'm steadfastly against the War on Drugs.

    It was most likely current retaliation for earlier retaliation against the group that murdered the person being memorialized. Now the associates of the people shot this morning will be retaliating for this event, if they already haven't. And so it goes in the neighborhoods were money is scarce, life is cheap, and education and adequate parenting can be lacking for some young men & women.
