NEWS: LA RAZA GANG MEMBERS ACCUSED OF SHOOTING POLICE
Chicago Police believe members of the notorious Mexican street gang La Raza used an AR-style rifle to carry out a brazen attack on Tuesday that left two plainclothes officers wounded and touched off a citywide manhunt. Gunmen shot up an unmarked police van with a handgun and a .223 caliber rifle, most likely an AR-15, department sources told the Chicago Sun-Times. Police say both officers were shot with a “high-powered weapon” — one in the hip and arm and the other in the back. The officers were released from Stroger Hospital on Wednesday after receiving treatment for non-life threatening wounds. “It’s a miracle the officers are still alive,” said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. Investigators are currently questioning three “persons of interest”.
