Man falls on ice, shoots laughing onlookers

A group of Evanston friends thought it was funny when a man fell on the ice, but the situation quickly turned ugly when the fallen man drew a gun and shot one of them. The incident occurred about 12:30 a.m. Saturday when the victim was standing outside with friends near 704 Florence in Evanston, according to a report from Evanston police.

When the group saw a man fall on the ice, they started to laugh at him, but he wasn't amused. The man pulled a gun and fired a shot, striking the victim in the ankle, the report said. The victim was treated at a local hospital, the report said. No one else was injured. The gunman was described only as a man wearing dark clothing. Further information was not immediately available.

Yeah except for the fact that this happened in the North Chicago suburb where they are trying to take away the gun rights of the entire nation because Chicago is completely out of control. :(

That HR 45 act is being sponsored by Bobby Rush of IL. Some serious stuff in there.
