CHICAGO (AP) _ Six Orthodox Jews were shot and wounded Friday night as they walked home from a synagogue in a Chicago neighborhood.
Five of the victims were in serious condition, but no wounds were considered to be life threatening, hospital officials said. There were no immediate arrests.
The shootings came on the Sabbath, a time when Orthodox Jews do not operate vehicles. The shootings happened in the Rogers Park neighborhood, an area home to a large concentration of Orthodox Jews.
