CHICAGO – State Senator Patricia Van Pelt (D-Chicago) released the following statement after reports of four people being shot in the vicinity of Benito Juarez High School in Pilsen Friday afternoon:

“I am saddened to learn of yet another tragic shooting on the Westside.

“This keeps happening, and it’s never okay. We cannot be desensitized by such constant violence, but remain dedicated to creating safer spaces for everyone.
