Those were all decent service workers at the auto shop. Always working outside was at least one or two workers. The shop workers talked to passers by, always polite.

Pray for them, set up a fund for the family of the tragedy immediately!

Probably some left over recipient class loser wannabe gang bangers. Find them and SHOOT them in the face.

I hope the survivor tells the police who did this, and they get theirs.

Senseless and tragic, another black eye on McKeesport.

Thank the crooked bought off self interested absorbed Democrats, and thank the Federal housing funding for making the community such a nice and safe place to live!

This last statement is one of the biggest truths ever posted on Topix. Well said.

Fed & state welfare socialist funding empowers the human , worthless parasites - and that mainly includes the inept, corrupt local Democrat political hacks.

The victims of this crime are from Clairton and it is likely that the perps are from outside of the area. That has been the pattern of practically all of the shooting deaths in McKeesport.

I suspect that this has something to do with the drug trade.

Boy, some of you are some real backwoods hillbilly idiots. If it were some black people who got shot you would be saying that they must have been involved in something wrong! You guys must dream in black and white! The news article clearly shows you that it was not a accidental shooting with someone being accidentally hit! There must have been a reason for to be shot, but you never even thought about that or even thought to ask that question because you already judged!
Just like you have crooked police and politicians there, you have crooked people who pose as being pillars of the community that are involved in illegal and nebulous things there. They just try to make their image look clean, but money will make them all violate every moral fiber they thought they had!
I am not saying that these people who were killed were definately involved in some illegal activities, but you commenters don't have a clue! You don't even have the presence of mind to realize that there must of have been a reason why these two gunmen would come and intentionally shoot these people down in cold blood.
I with no doubt agree that there are some ignorant people who will shoot people for no good reason and I feel just like Richard Pryor did when he asked the gut in the Jail "Why did you kill everyone in the house?", Thank God for prisons! But all that political B.S. you guys are talking and ad-libbing, is probally why these things keep happening. It just like a bunch of witches chanting over and over, evoking a curse over the city, keeeping it alive.

What about all those Klan - type of murders there? Pittsburgh and McKeesport and surronding communities are full of these vermin! Are they socialistic recipient class losers too? They haven't been too visible since the blacks don't mind donating lead to their cause, so they just sit around and negativily gripe on the forum like brain deformed parrots instead, because they don't want any holes in their sheets!

They don't understand the universal law of karma (you reap what you sow), or even reconize that this is the repercussions of their past actions as a group of people. Now they want to know why "innocent people" are being killed today, just like blacks did in the past when innocent black were being lynched! All of a sudden they can see the injustice now!

What are you talking about? Re-read what you wrote... I have several times.. and have no idea what the Klan or anyone else has to do with this. It was totally a drug related shooting.. Noone is complaining about anything... we are GLAD the druggies are shooting each other.. and it usually is the Blacks.

Oh, I guess you guys figure that if you do that there won't be enough working white people left to support all the entitlement handouts you guys get from the government...

Chicago Shootings: 15 Wounded, Including 10-Year-Old, Over 6 Hours Ahead Of Fourth Of July Holiday

Posted: 07/04/2012 10:23 am Updated: 07/04/2012 10:23 am

Fifteen people were shot Tuesday evening in Chicago over a six-hour period on the eve of the mid-week Fourth of July holiday.

A 10-year-old girl who had been playing near an open fire hydrant was shot around 11:20 p.m. in the 200 block of North Leamington Avenue in the city's Austin neighborhood, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The girl was shot in the left arm and abdomen and was taken to Oak Park's West Suburban Medical Center in critical condition before being transferred to Stroger Hospital. Her condition has since stabilized, but she may still need more surgery, according to the paper.
A 24-year-old man was also injured in the right heel in the same shooting. He is listed in good condition, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The two are among at least 15 people wounded in separate shootings over six hours in the city.

Among the other incidents was a 15-year-old boy was shot in the left arm around 5 p.m. in the 8500 block of South Peoria while playing basketball.

A drive-by shooting injured three in the city's Uptown neighborhood early Tuesday evening, NBC Chicago reports. Two women were in critical condition after one was shot in the back and the other in the knee. A man with them was also shot in the leg.

The Tuesday violence comes on the heels of a weekend during which at nine people were killed and 17 hurt by gun violence in the city.
As The Daily Beast noted in a Monday column, Chicago's murder rate is in the midst of a surge not seen since 2003. The unrelenting gun violence prompted the city, last week, to launch a pilot partnership with anti-violence group CeaseFire.

With the July 4 holiday arriving in the middle of a heat wave, police held a roll call in front of Water Tower Place on Michigan Avenue with the hopes of putting the city at ease.
"What we want to emphasize is that police are committed to keeping the downtown area, as well as the city of Chicago, safe during this holiday period," Deputy Chief Eddie Johnson told NBC Chicago.

No one is in custody in any of the Tuesday shootings as of Wednesday morning.

Someone should bring the record keeping up at a council meeting. Maybe public records can be requested by way of PA right to know laws.

90% of black people who live in McKeesport are either on welfare or some assistance. The numbers don't lie, you can find them online. What's that say?
