University of Chicago Shooting Today – This week, a 20-year-old University of Chicago student from Woodlawn was shot. Residents on 65th Place reported hearing two gunshots and saw a body on the road shortly before emergency workers arrived. According to the Chicago police department, the youngster will be alright, but the violent incident has made the other students extra wary.
Hkeem and Holly DuPart were inside their Hyde Park house near 65th Place and South Stony Island Avenue when they heard gunshots at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday. “I looked out the window and saw someone laying there,” the person continued. According to authorities, the incident occurred after a failed attempt at armed robbery. A bullet was said to have struck the groin. Two suspects eluded capture. According to Michael Gates, a graduate student, “I was like that is incredibly unfortunate and I can’t imagine what I would do if it was either myself or one of my friends.” “For the sake of your sanity, you should downplay its significance a little.”
Despite the fact that gunshots can be heard just a few blocks away, three graduate students from the University of Chicago told ABC7 that they are not concerned about their safety on campus. The existence of emergency call buttons makes me feel relieved. People are patrolling. “I feel safe because you’ll see cop cars and university police patrol,” Jun Yi Kok, a graduate student, said. “It’s a good feeling.” The associate vice president for safety and security and the dean of students wrote to students the day after the shooting, “University staff are in contact with the student and their family and will ensure that they have access to the support services and resources they need.”
