The rampant shootings in Chicago continue to take a toll on the city’s music scene and the youth. A tragedy almost occurred on someone’s prom night over the weekend.
On the night of June 11, Chi-Town artist Chella H and a group of high school students narrowly escaped a near fatal shooting as she was escorting them to prom over the weekend.
Chella H was spending the weekend volunteering to shuttle students back and forth to prom when six shots was fired into the vehicle. Pictures from the terrible incident show that some of the bullets went into the seat, missing her chest and head. Reports via Fake Shore Drive state that the shooting, like many others, was a case of mistaken identity.
