Around 7:45 p.m., an 18-year-old man was shot in the chest in the 8000 block of South Chappel Avenue in the South Chicago neighborhood, police said.

A black vehicle pulled up just south of the corner of Chappel and 80th Street and someone got out, fired shots at the teen, then got back in the vehicle, which then sped off, a police source said.

The man was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 8:24 p.m., according to the medical examiner's office. He was identified as Tyrone Hart of the of the 8100 block of South Chappel Avenue, officials said.

Fox News Continues To Push The Lie That Only Conservatives Were Targeted By The IRS
http://www.politicususa.com/2013/07/28/fox-ne...
CBS News/ July 18, 2013, 2:01 PM
Liberal groups may have been targeted by IRS as well
New documents provided to the Treasury Department's inspector general indicate that progressive groups, in addition to conservative groups, may have been targeted by the IRS for additional scrutiny, according to testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee by J. Russell George, the inspector general. The revelation bolsters the case of congressional Democrats who have argued that IRS targeting was not politically motivated, and that the groups targeted were more ideologically diverse than originally believed.

In his prepared testimony, George described documents from July 2010 that included the term "progressive" within a discussion of the types of groups that should be scrutinized by the IRS. Those documents were provided to George's office on July 9, but were not provided prior to the inspector general's original audit that initially jump-started the targeting scandal and the resultant committee hearings.
