Woman With 3 Children Shot Dead By 2 Men

A lady who was with her two young sons were killed by two members of an opposing gang who were sentenced to more than fifty years in jail each for firing their weapons at their competitors but instead killing the woman’s family. She was talking to a store worker and standing near her two sons, ages 10 and 12, when a bullet went through the front glass of the store located at 5900 S. Kedzie Ave. and wounded her in the head.

The store is located in the 5900 block of South Kedzie Avenue. She was in critical condition when she arrived at the hospital, where she was taken. It was discovered that she had died away once she arrived at the Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn after being taken there in an ambulance.

Video of Incident Came Out

The prosecution claimed that a video recording of the incident showed Mitchell, Zabala, and another member of the Satan’s Disciples street gang “false flagging” (showing rival gang signs) to a group of men who were travelling in a Chrysler car just prior to the shooting. This claim was based on the fact that the video was obtained through the discovery of evidence. After that, Zabala went and retrieved a gun, which he then delivered to Mitchell, who proceeded to fire five shots at the Chrysler while it was parked on a major roadway during evening rush hour.

“This happened… on a dazzlingly gorgeous spring evening in the city of Chicago where it all took place. I can say with absolute certainty that it took place during the week,” Tim Joyce, the judge, took a mental note of something. That intersection was used by a significant number of people, both on foot and in vehicles, on a regular basis.

The officials claim that just one of the bullets struck the Chrysler, while the other two struck an ambulance that had recently left a hospital and was on its way back to a fire station. Tuesday came and went without a word from Mitchell, but Zabala did apologise to Dickerson’s family after the incident. Zabala is quoted as saying, “I didn’t mean for anything to happen.” “I beg you not to hold it against me,” the person said.

Joyce indicated that he was aware that neither of them planned to kill the mother, who was 36 years old, but he considered that their actions were still highly bad even though they did not want to kill her. “It is not a ridiculous suggestion at all. The reason for this is that they do not care about anything other than venting their annoyance at a different member of the gang, and this is why they behave in this manner “The magistrate made a remark.

She was looking for a smartphone with a more recent model.
