Anti-Violence Activist Killed In Chicago Drive By

 

 

 

 

 

” Drive-by shooting: A Chicago woman who was a prominent community activist was tragically shot and killed after returning home from an event raising money for an anti-violence group.

  Police believe that the fatal shooting of Leonore Draper likely was a random drive by rather than the victim of this horrible crime being an intended target. Responding officers found Draper in her car with gunshot wounds to her arm and chest at about 10:30 pm on Friday night. She was later pronounced dead a local hospital.

  She was well-known and respected in the area for her community service activities. “The fundraiser Draper attended and helped organize was called A Charitable Confection and was benefiting Project Orange Tree, an anti-violence campaign that started after the death of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendelton last year.” Said one of the other project organizers, “It’s really ironic. She was a part of an anti-violence effort, and she becomes a victim of violence herself.” “

   You can add Ms Draper to the other 30 shot , wounded or killed from Friday night to Saturday morning in Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago . While the Superintendent Of Police blames “lax gun laws” for Chicago’s leadership in killings his department is accused of falsifying statistics to make it seem as if the murder rate is falling .

   Easter weekend saw 45 people shot , nine fatally even as Superintendent McCarthy brags about the decreasing murder rate , while this weekend’s totals have climbed to 40 shot , 5 fatally through Saturday night .
