Masked Gunman Opens Fire at Car on Cermak/State Intersection

Disgusting and scary stuff (via Chicago Tribune):
After a chase that lasted less than two miles, a gunman in a ski mask walked up to a car and opened fire in the South Loop Wednesday night, seriously wounding a 6-month-old baby and a 13-year-old girl and also hitting two adults, according to Chicago police.

Another child in the car, a 15-year-old girl, escaped unharmed.
Police said there was "some type of interaction" between the car and the gunman's blue van or SUV that led to the chase and the shooting around 9:10 p.m. near Cermak Road and State Street.

"We do not believe this was a random act," said Chicago police Deputy Chief Kevin Ryan.
I guess the fact that it wasn't a random act is supposed to make the neighborhood feel a little comfort...although I'm not sure that's how I feel.
