A Chicago Police officer stands next the body of Paul Hamilton, 47, at the scene of a fatal double shooting in Ogden Park Monday, Labor Day, Sept. 5, 2016, in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago. Lacoah Curtis, who was grilling in the park with her family nearby, packed up food and picnic supplies as the sun set and police told people the park was closed. An officer shined his flashlight so she could see better. Curtis grew up in the area but hasn’t been to a barbecue in a park in 10 or so years because she fears shootings. When she was in high school, she said, someone who wanted to kill someone else went and found that person, and shot them. But now, “people don’t care about shooting into a crowded park” and hitting innocent bystanders.
