Man Survives Monday Night Drive-By Shooting

It was the second incident in a week in which someone has been shot three times by unknown assailants in a car, Joliet police said.

A 19-year-old Joliet man was shot three times in a drive-by shooting that took place at 7:30 p.m. Monday on the near East Side, Joliet police said.

The victim was walking across a parking lot at 111 McDonough St. when an unknown vehicle fired three shots, striking him in the stomach, leg and foot, Capt. Tab Jensen said.

None of the injuries were life-threatening, and the victim is in stable condition at Provena St. Joseph Medical Center in Joliet, Jensen said.

There are no suspects in the incident, and the victim was described as "uncooperative," he said.

It was the second drive-by shooting in less than a week in which a victim was struck and injured. On Jan. 16, a man driving near Cherry and Munroe streets told police a car he did not recognize drove up to his vehicle and fired nine shots, three of which hit him, reports said.

His injuries were also non-life-threatening, Joliet police said.

WOW, I expected all of the anti gun idiots to be blaming guns again! They must be educating themselves!
FP January 23, 2013 at 03:35 PM
This is scary. Is someone just randomly shooting people? Do we need to worried?
John Roberts January 23, 2013 at 03:48 PM

NICE! Another Joliet Fire Department Ambulance ride that will go UNPAID! Easy way to get reimbursed... Deduct the "amblance ride" from the victim's "gubment" check he or she is receiving!

Wow, how pathetic. A bunch of chicken$#it rascist spewing the ignorant hatred for everyone to see. Its so funny to see losers who blame their failing at life on AA. Its nice to see the AA readers didn't leave snide comments about another white loser shooting up a school, movie theater or some other place. Not to mention no mention of the four white kids who strangled and chopped up two AA men last week in Joliet. By all means, cowards/losers/unemployed white trash,,,, please stay in your trailers and keep posting on an anon site.

Well we could all ride around shooting speech other like most blacks,we can go out and get into big mob fights like blacks do,take a look at most of the violence on the Internet and what is it? Blacks shooting,fighting,robbing,each other and others.Biggest gangs are black and mexican..Who is in prison the most for drugs? Blacks...what area has the most shootings? Black areas...what parts have the most drug sales? Black areas...What areas require the most police force? Black areas..What places have the lowest housing prices? Black areas...If you took out a map and sent it to every one in Joliet and were told to circle the worst areas in Joliet..would it be racist if all of the maps came back with the black areas circled?..or would that be public opinion..Look at the shit holes on America and tell me who lives in these shit holes..And don't blame it on the white man..while most of the people BBQing in empty lots lying on the ground getting drunk..where did I see that. Oh yeah in Ford Heights..in the black area..not a one of them had the ambition to get up and go look for work..not being racist just pointing out the facts..but I guess in today's times that's being racist...What makes Joliet a shit hole..well let's look at who commits the most crime and what areas it is in..How the area has changed when " others" came to live in it..what's the areas you can get shot the quickest in? Black areas that where.

To ya'll hood rats, It is not always a hate crime if a whitey hurts the always innocent blackman. Hugh, at least the hillbillies have a trailer, you live in a crack house. Did you have to go to the "liberry" to use dat computer???If it wasn't for us losers and cowards, who would pay all of your unpaid bills, and support your babies and baby momma's??? It is time the white man stop supporting the ghetto!
getreal January 24, 2013 at 04:10 PM
John Roberts, you couldn't have said it any better!
Lynard Skynard January 25, 2013 at 03:19 AM
Excellant job guys. You just proved my point. A bunch of keyboard cowards spewing all their hatred, safely and annonomously from their trailer parks. To afraid to say/do anything in public. Thank God losers like you stay inside bitching about "negro's" instead of going and shooting up a school or movie theater. Carry on cowards, too ignorant to realize thousands read your comments and laugh at you.
John Roberts January 26, 2013 at 03:00 PM
Do you see John Roberts?dont believe that me?.lol your sadly mistaken...Well Hugh..where is the worst parts of town for you at?..where are the shootings happening in your city? What color are the people ending up dead from being shot by gang members? They are all black on the Patch..look at every one shot and the pictures of the people doing the shooting what color are they?..all I see is black pictures when it comes to shooting and killing for gangs...everyone and then you see a mexican..I know they do just as much shooting but don't look like their getting caught as much....what color are the people in the areas where you can not or should not go at night or even ask for directions in broad daylight because knowing your lost in and advantage to them..what color are they?..what's up with the "Hill" what color are they?..is pointing out the facts racist to you?..you must be one of thoes that said "if you don't vote for Obama then your racist" aren't you?..John Roberts I am the Whitey,Honkey,Cracker..and don't forget it.

It really doesn't matter that you "knew" blacks or what they have done. Who really cares. You're an idiot. Posting rascist tirades on a public forum and then trying to justify it shows your ignorance and stupidity. I would simply answer: Jeff Dahmer, John Gacy,Richard Speck, Adolph Hitler, George W Bush, The Sandyhook shooter, The Colorado theater shooter, The Columbine shooters, Need i go on ? What do all these psycho's have in common ? White that had every advantage in life but chose to kill. At least the ghetto rats you mentioned were born into poverty and hopelessness and had to face a world full of ill-bread losers like you and never had a chance. The fact that you get on a public forum and spew you ignorance proves that you have failed at life. You have to have someone to blame instead of facing the fact that you're an idiot.. Please stay in your trailer listening to Rush, Beck, Hannity and the rest of Faux news. You really have nothing worthwhile to offer mankind.
John Roberts January 27, 2013 at 02:23 PM
No ass it shows racism only exists if you give a shit..lol..do you really care if someone calls you a Honkey..lmao...not me..lmao..not born into poverty.lmao..came from good homes..parents that always worked...this is where your not paying attention...these people are not just from poverty...like you would like to think...these are just regular citizens...racial hatred..did I sound mad,upset,or hate anyone..not at all..just showing people that while the world might speak out against racism..but in friends,groups,of friends there will always be the racism...Didnt get out much when you were a kid did ya? What would you do if someone called you a Honkey,whitey,cracker..Would you insult back,fight,call them a name...Me I laughed my ass off...I grew up around black people and I am here to tell ya,all races are racist...or have racism in them...White people who hang around blacks and black who hang around whites all know this...Us we didn't give a shit...So like I said racism only exists if you make it...if you care about it...And let's look at it..Who taught that the blacks were slaves and used to be called niggers?..School that's who..who taught that one colore owned another? School that's who.When do most people start to call eachother racist words? In School where they learned all about slavery,the word meanings..and from there it continued...All my kids have black friend and were over here all day all the time...Idiot...
