If only the entire county were armed. First they could have shot the teen, then, as the poorly aimed shots started hitting people who were not involved, everyone could have started shooting each other. Then shooting crimes would plummet.

Sounds like a drug deal gone bad. Why don't they tell it like it is.

Drug deal gone bad is speculation. You want the Trib to print speculation? Just the facts, please.

I know that area and the best thing that they could do is to please drop a bomb on the whole area to clean it up of all the scum living there

I must agree that unincorporated Park Ridge/Des Plaines is Little Shiittville.

To think that I am trying to leave the city and move out in Des Plaines or Mt. Prospect. It's scary...can't run and can't hide. It's every where. I guess I will continue to pray for the USA!

The Des Plaines Aldermen are a bunch of carny workers. Watch the local t.v. show of the council and laugh! The Mayor of Des Plaines is a joke!

My Dad had stated that the apartment complex across the street from Maine East would become a ghetto. He guessed right!

The unincorporated area also adjoins Niles.

A "dispute over money"?

So was the adorable little shooter an unpaid drug-dealer or an unpaid prostitute?

To those who have posted raciest/hateful comments: you all should be ashamed of yourselves. Clearly this child was in crisis, (one must be to perform such a violent act) and yes this child will have serious consequences. However, it is pathetic that so many people respond to this story by posting such vulgar, racist comments, most of which have no relation to the news story. If you want the violence to stop look in the mirror and think about how you, and your actions, contribute to social ills in this country.
