AMBURN GRESHAM — On Thursday, a two-year-old kid was still healing at Comer Children’s Hospital after being injured in a shooting that had claimed the life of his mother, who was 23 years old and had been shot the day before. Along with two other people, Sanna Foster, her small kid, and the father of her boy, who is 29 years old, were among those who were shot on Wednesday afternoon in the Auburn Gresham section of the city. “I want her to be remembered as a young vibrant woman,” Barbara, who is the boy’s godmother, said in reference to Sanna.
Her children were the joy and happiness in her life. She had a good nature. She had a gentle manner of speech. She was simply prepared to start a new chapter in her life and take on new challenges. Barbara, who begged NBC Chicago not to reveal her last name, expressed her deep sorrow for Foster’s children and that she is “heartbroken” for them. “When people say kids don’t understand, because this baby most definitely understand,” she added. “When people say kids don’t understand.” All he wants is his mother, that’s all he’s been begging for.
Investigators believe that multiple shooters emerged from a dark-colored vehicle on Wednesday afternoon near the intersection of 81st and Elizabeth and opened fire, resulting in the injuries of five persons. Barbara referred to the young kid and remarked, “He’s just distraught and in disbelief,” describing the young boy’s emotions. “He hasn’t talked about any of that stuff. The only thing that he mentioned was that we had just picked up the infant from school, that we had just picked up the baby from school, and that everything had happened so quickly.
A 62-year-old man, who was a bystander and was claimed to be innocent by the community leaders, was also struck by gunshots. According to Ald. David Moore, who represents the 17th Ward, this incident was tied to another shooting that took place on Tuesday at 85th and Carpenter, when two individuals were hurt. “Everyone always says that you know we’re looking for a solution that needs to be done, this needs to be done, but in reality, what really can be done to stop situations like this?” “Everyone always says that you know we’re looking for a solution that needs to be done, this needs to be done.” Barbara had a question. An internet campaign to generate money for Foster’s burial and other costs to assist her children was initiated in order to collect donations for these causes.
Barbara mentioned that Foster is survived by three sons, the youngest of whom is only five months old. She said that in her role as their godmother, she is doing everything she can to assist their father in caring for them and to pay tribute to the memories of their mother. She remarked, “Whether it’s supporting the dad or supporting the family, I plan to put my best foot forward.” “I plan to put my best foot forward.” “Right now, my primary mission is to check on Sanna Foster’s children and make sure they are well. I am well aware that they will require a great deal of assistance.” According to Ald. Moore, investigators believe the father of the boy was the intended target of the attack. Nobody has been taken into custody as of yet.
