Tending to the wounded: 'I think it's my head, sir. Help me, please'

A sergeant and a firefighter stood over a 36-year-old man who lay motionless on his back on a Humboldt Park sidewalk early Tuesday morning.  

One knee was bent and his arms were stretched out. He bled through his pants and through his white T-shirt. He bled from his face.

Engine 44 had arrived within minutes, along with the sergeant.

The man moaned. "I think it's my head, sir."  

The firefighter wore orange gloves. The man rolled, tried to get up, then rolled back onto his back.

"Help me, please," he yelled.

Engine 44 idled on Christiana Avenue just south of Ohio Street. In the parkway, about 50 feet away, lay another man, 34, also shot, also not moving much.

A firefighter cut the 36-year-old man's shirt. "My head hurts," the man yelled.

The sergeant stood over the man and asked his name.

He groaned. "Jones."

The sergeant looked down over the man and asked again.

"What is it?"

"Kevin Jones," he moaned. "Help me, please."

More officers arrived. They fanned out and went to work almost without direction. Hanging tape, searching for evidence.

The man lay across from a vacant factory and in front of an apartment building a few feet from where a man was killed 28 days ago.

"Help me, please."

"What's your address?" the sergeant asked.

He gave his address.

"Help me, please."

The man rolled onto his face and stopped screaming. He stopped moving.

A paramedic grabbed his arm and shook him. Nothing, for a few seconds. Then he rolled back over.
"Help me, please."

Medics tended to the wounded within about four minutes of the shooting. The first ambulance arrived 14 minutes after 911 callers first reported the shooting.

"C'mon," the man said.

The sergeant assured him the ambulance had arrived.

"Help me, please."

One of the medics retrieved an orange backboard from the ambulance. The 36-year-old was in the ambulance at 3:17 a.m.

A second ambulance arrived a few minutes later. The second man shot bled from his mouth as medics wheeled him south on Christiana to the ambulance that had pulled in behind the first on Ohio.

A black Crown Victoria followed the first ambulance as officers sorted out which one was going to Stroger Hospital, which to Mount Sinai Hospital.

The two men here, and a woman found grazed a block away, were among seven shot in the Harrison District between about 1:40 and 3 a.m.

Three others were shot, one fatally, on Ridgeway just south of Division. The man who died there was shot to death standing outside of a car.

Two women in the car were also wounded, and the car fled north to Division and crashed into a tree half a block west.

While police investigated that shooting, gunfire erupted a couple blocks away.

Officers and onlookers tilted their heads toward the gunfire, obviously in the distance but close enough to cause concern.

A woman on Division Street yelled at police:  "Go, go! They're shooting right now!"
