A campaign worker was recovering Monday after being shot in the leg while campaigning for 15th Ward aldermanic candidate Joseph Williams on Sunday.
Maxwell Little was going door to door to garner support for Williams when the shooting occurred at about 1:45 p.m. in the 6600 block of South Marshfield Avenue in the city’s West Englewood neighbourhood.
Little was on the sidewalk and streaming on Facebook Live when a man wearing a red mask shot him. The video shuts off just as he was shot in the leg.
In a statement Sunday afternoon, 15th Ward Alderman Raymond Lopez called the shooting “the same type of mindless gun violence we have seen in other neighbourhoods,” and said gun violence in the area “must be confronted and addressed directly and without excuses.”
Are you on the search for an active, attentive pal who is full of energy? Then Helena may be the girl for you! She is playful and affectionate and loves to play fetch and snacking on treats! This one-year-old Terrier Mix would be a great walking partner because she can go for miles! She loves to give her owner kisses and to be close to wherever you are. Helena doesn’t like when her humans are gone most of the day. She aims to please, so she’d like a home where she will receive continued training. Helena has most recently been working on crate training and enjoys that! Helena is a strong pup who is looking for an experienced owner. She prefers to be the only dog in the home and would also do best with family members 15 and older.
Helena will be available for adoption tomorrow, Saturday, December 1st at a special suburban dog adoption event at the Walter E. Smithe Oak Brook Showroom, located at 1501 16th Street. PAWS will be bringing larger dogs like Helena, and some puppies who are in need of homes and space to run and play. Stop in from 12-3pm to meet the dogs, talk with PAWS, and take home your new best friend!
