"I heard the gunshots," next-door neighbor Enrique Sayago said in Spanish.

"I just can't believe it was my neighbor. I can't believe it was him."

Unfortunately, Enrique's neighbor wasn't the only problem in Chicago the weekend before Independence Day.

Breitbart is reporting that "at least 32 people were shot, three of them fatally, during the weekend in Mayor Brandon Johnson’s (D) Chicago."

Chicago no longer has Lori Lightfoot running the ship these days, but her replacement doesn't seem to be faring any better.

Perhaps that's because he's a Democrat just like Lightfoot was.

That doesn't make it any easier for Enrique Sayago to comprehend what his neighbor just did though. Even if the warning signs may have been there because "the police had been here two or three times."

According to, Sayago's neighbor was "arrested after his teenage daughter and his wife were shot to death and his son was wounded in their Little Village home, according to Chicago police."

The son was shot in the ankle but manage to flee the scene and get to a different neighbor's house. It was from there that the son called the police just after midnight on Monday morning.

Police arrived at the scene and found the daughter who had been shot in the face. She was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The identity of the daughter is not being released at this time by police. Although the source article is a bit confusing, it would appear as though the Cook County Medical Examiner has identified the deceased mother as Karina Gonzalez, said to be in her late forties.

Karina Gonzalez was found at the scene having suffered multiple gunshot wounds. The Cook County medical examiner's office said that she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The son who was shot in the foot but was able to escape is currently being listen in "fair" condition and is resting at Mount Sinai Hospital.

Family of the victims identified the shooter as the dead woman's husband and the father of the aforementioned teens.

Pray for this family and the entire city of Chicago. They need it.
