A 46-year-old man was shot to death Thursday morning in front of his home in the Southwest Side Gage Park neighborhood.
About 11:30 a.m., Abel Melesio was watering his lawn in the 5600 block of South Richmond when a black Cadillac SUV drove by and someone inside fired shots, according to authorities and community activist Andrew Holmes.
His family heard the gunfire and ran outside for find Melesio shot twice and lying in the grass, Holmes said. His daughter rode with him in the ambulance to Holy Cross Hospital.
This is why we need to bring the electric chair back.
