The Chicago Tribune has the story of a business owner and pillar of the community shot to death in Chicago.
Chicago isn’t safe, folks.
Burn that into your minds.
Chicago isn’t safe.
Chicago (Tribune) – The 66-year-old proprietor of a Gold Coast framing company was gunned down over the weekend at the Southwest Side factory complex where he had worked for 30 years, police and family members said.
Described by his son as a jack of all trades and animal lover, Herbert Goode was the owner of Silver Cloud Galleries, a custom framing company with a storefront at 20 W. Ohio St.
He was a donor and volunteer to animal welfare organizations and had been active in local school boards and the Boy Scouts of America, his son, Alex Goode, said in a phone interview on Sunday.
“He touched a lot of lives,” Goode, 26, said of his slain father. “It’s a blow to the community.”
