"After the shots were fired, the gang members got back into their cars and went back to work," Am I the only one wondering how 7 rival gang members get hired at CARMAX? Really? What does their interview process look like if they managed to employ 7 rival active gang members?

In the article, Mayor Zabrocki confirmed they were gangbangers and said That they went to the store to buy beer on their break, threw a bottle at rival gangbangers then went back to work. Can you see the conversation when they returned to work? "What did you do on your break?" A: "I drank beer and shot at my co-worker". I thought the shooting was a drive by? Previous articles stated the police found casings in the street. How did they shoot em up at the store, get back in the car and drive away if the casings were in the street? There is a discrepancy between previous reports and the Mayor's comments http://southtownstar.suntimes.com/neighborhoodstar/tinleypark/15124430-418/chicago-man-charged-in-tinley-park-shooting-incident.html

They didn't work for Carmax. They work as temp workers for the warehouse that will be housing Kuerig coffee.
