Ricardo Marchan Shot Two Innocent People Because of Breakup, Police Said

Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not saying there are people who deserve to get shot.

However, Chicago police say Ricardo Marchan shot “two innocent people,” because  his girlfriend broke up with him.

Police said.  You know.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

A man upset over a breakup with his girlfriend decided to vent his rage by randomly shooting two innocent people in the back of the head before police arrested him in the middle of a separate robbery, Chicago Police said Saturday.

The connection between the two murders and the armed robbery Aug. 2 in Humboldt Park was revealed Saturday when Ricardo Marchan, 24, of the 4000 block of West Grand, was charged with two counts of murder. He previously was charged with armed robbery.

Police said Marchan’s deadly rampage began at 4:10 a.m. Aug. 2, when he allegedly shot Michael Hernandez in the 1500 block of North Western Avenue.

Hernandez, 18, who was planning to attend college this fall, was shot in the back of the head. He was driving to his mother’s home after a night with friends.

Police said Marchan then drove about four blocks west and, three minutes later, fatally shot Patrick Cregan, 35, in the 1400 block of North California Avenue. Cregan, who was delivering a pizza, also was shot in the back of the head in his car, police said.

Hernandez was planning to attend college this fall.

Cregan was a pizza delivery man, shot in the back of the head.

My son delivers pizza.

For God’s sake, my son delivers pizza.  The Bush Economy has destroyed job prospects in the Chicagoland area, and the Obama Economy is still struggling to breathe.

Why do we work out our grievances in this country by shooting other people?  Am I the only one who thinks this is insane?

Why shoot innocent people?
