Earlier this week, five men linked by police to a deadly gang shootout in Austin were released from custody after prosecutors declined to charge each of them with a pair of felonies, including first-degree murder.
The mid-morning gunfight, which left one shooter dead and two of the suspects wounded, stemmed from an internal dispute between two gang factions, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting. The shooting was captured on a city POD camera.
Lightfoot said she couldn't believe that Foxx had not filed any charges in the shootout.
