Two hundred plus youths held an impromptu parking lot party in Willowbrook, Illinois this past weekend, ostensibly to celebrate the Juneteenth holiday. It all came to a screeching halt shortly after midnight when a vehicle rolled up and one or more persons emerged and began firing into the crowd. In the end, news reports say as many as 23 were shot, one was killed and police have zero suspects in custody.

Police apparently expected trouble. WBNS 10TV reported that cops were “close by” monitoring the party. Yet despite their relatively close proximity, they made no arrests as they responded to a 911 call minutes before the shooting began.

Here’s what it looked like immediately after cops arrived in the unincorporated location about twenty miles west of Murder City, USA.

Obviously that hot take was wrong. Twenty aren’t dead, thankfully. The professional jernalizmists at CNN reported it thusly . . .

At least 22 people were injured and one person was killed by gunfire overnight in Illinois, in a peaceful Juneteenth celebration turned deadly, police say.

Well, it was “mostly peaceful.” At least until a carload of bad guys opened up on the festivities, likely with illegal switch-equipped GLOCKs.

An unknown number of suspects fired multiple rounds from multiple weapons into the large crowd of people gathered to celebrate Juneteenth, according to a statement from the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office.

Judging by the placement of the evidence markers in the photo above, it looks as though the firing may have been a bi-directional affair.

No suspects are in custody, police said.

The shooting took place around 12:30 a.m. in a parking lot in Willowbrook, about 21 miles west of Chicago.

A large group of people gathered for the celebration from around 6 p.m. on Saturday, and police were at the site to monitor the event, the sheriff’s office said.

The officers were called away around 12:25 a.m. to respond to a 911 call reporting a fight nearby.

It’s almost as if a gang used a burner phone to call the police away before opening fire.

“As deputies responded, they heard gunshots and immediately returned to the scene of the gathering,” the sheriff’s office said.

Witnesses said the parking lot was still filled with people when the sound of gunshots rang out and the scene turned chaotic. Some people started running.

And others appear to have shot back. Governor JB Pritzker interrupted his Father’s Day to let Illinois citizens know he was closely monitoring the situation.

Conspicuously absent from this statement; any mention of gang or black on black violence. Illinois has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country, yet they just don’t seem to work very well in the northern part of the state.

The Willowbrook attack wasn’t the only to take place at a Juneteenth celebration as shootings also happened in Asheville, North Carolina and San Diego. And so it goes.

      • I’m not clear. Doesn’t Illinois have working gun control laws to prevent this sort of thing? Inquiring minds want to know.

  1. Were any of Biden’s AR-15 selling Good Humour trucks spotted at the scene? God save the Queen!!!

  2. St. George Floyd rolled up and starting yelling: THIS IS HOW WE CELEBRATE JUNETEENTH, BITCHES!

  3. You can’t fix stupid and the voters of greater Chiraq are STUPID… They are getting exactly what they voted for. Both at the local and state levels.

  4. im so confused. Illinois has all that great gun control that should have made this impossible. Is this a fake story?

  5. “Ostensibly to celebrate the holiday.”
    I’d bet my last check the vast majority had no clue there even was a holiday.
    And if they did, you’re out celebrating until and after midnight?

  6. I’ll say it. No one else will say it, but I will. We don’t have a “gun violence” problem in this country. We have a feral black male problem in this country.

  7. Seems to be a problem in certain parts of the bigger cities and within certain demographics in those cities. Can’t celebrate anything without someone getting shot/killed. Getting so even going to a funeral requires body armor.
    But it’s us horrible white guys who are killing these folks? Hell, the racist dumbasses, or the police, or even the white supremist’s the pResident rambles on about don’t need to lift a finger. These fools are killing themselves off.

  8. Give me a show of hands who thought there would be a black gathering with nobody getting shot ha ha ha.

    Where is the BLM clan???

  9. If President Obama had some bastard sons, they would probably look like the shooters.

    • Hey that ain’t nice.
      For your sins say the
      President Biden is the greatest president America has or ever will have. Prayer 50times

  10. I wonder if humans will develop a tuff outer shell like an armadillo.
    *Pow, Pow Pow* ping whizzzz -“Ow , my eye ! Dude watch where your deflecting them bullets, make your back crooked or something.”

  11. my wife’s friend’s daughter (16yo) dates the first cousin of the deceased. she was in attendance. and that’s how bob’s yer uncle.

  12. This is actually a continuation of good news – 23 shot and only 1 killed. In a real encounter, the troops that the progressive socialists are counting on have a higher chance of hitting their own than the target.

    • Gotta stop using those FMJs. 9mm and 5.56? About all they’d buy, I’ll bet.

      Go with expanding stuff. The guns will likely feed it just fine. These peeps obviously don’t have any real idea how to kill someone with a firearm…

    • Thankfully they outlawed braces. It could have been much worse. Now people will have to use stocks.

    • “Fake holiday.”

      It’s a paid federal holiday, that makes it real enough.

      I’m waiting on them to recognize Durin’s Day…

    • To be “fair” this area is still usually “nice”. The county mounties likely are somewhat inexperienced with black gang warfare. Get used to it boyz n girls. This BS is everywhere…🙄

  13. Diversity and vibrancy at its finest. We’re so lucky in this country to have such a remarkable population. The humorous antics just don’t stop.

  14. Watching the news this morning there were a lot more mass shootings than mentioned in the article. I’ll leave the whole black holiday, black shootings thing alone. I wonder about the definition of “mass shooting”. Most average person I speak with on the subject seem to define a mass shooting as a lone gunman, rarely there has been another acting in concert, shooting people they have no connection with. The miserable Columbine scum are exceptions to both those rules. Even though there connection to the victims was tenuous at best. Accident of birth and geography. By the left’s definition the quadruple homicide and both the triples I worked would be mass shootings. No they weren’t. In all those murders each victim was targeted by the suspects. Except in a general sense no one else was in danger. We all know the left will twist a term to fit its definition. Webster’s be damned.

    • The FBI/DOJ definition is 3 or more dead, not including the Shooter. The number of wounded doesn’t count. It can be more than one shooter, but the shooting is usually Ideolocically driven. GangBanger Violence isn’t a Mass Shooting.

      The Media and Anti-Gun crowd define a Mass Shooting as 2 or more victims, wounded or dead. This is how they claim the “Mass Shooting a Day” Stat/Lie.

    • LOL I will let you know when it kicks in over here. Maybe bail and sentencing reform is slowing down the improvement.

  15. That’s what happens when all those white Amish boys show up……..they always ruin everything.

  16. Personally I’d avoid anyplace with a CATFISH sign but there’s no mention of 223’s anywhere in the news so almost assuredly no (commonly owned i.e. AR-15’s) Assault Weapons were used. Lets just keep blaming the wrong problem.
