the murder of a black man, Reginald Jones, said to be a wonderful father, gregarious and hard worker was the last murder of 2014 for Chicago. If the assailant turns out to be white, you’ll hear about this on the national news. Maybe Al Sharpton or Eric Holder can come for the protests or the funeral. If he’s black, and 93% of these murders are, then you’ll never hear of him again.
The shooting occurred about 2:30 p.m. at Rodriguez Rims & Tires at 80th and S. Stony Island Ave in Avalon Park, police said. A gunman in a ski mask approached Jones, shot him multiple times and ran away, police told Jones’ family.
