Richard Magnan, an alleged member of Chicago’s 2-6 street gang accidentally shot and killed his friend over the 4th of July weekend. Magnan, who told police he “keeps a gun to protect himself from rivals” was waving a pistol around in a Walgreens parking lot when it went off, striking his fellow gang member in the stomach. Surprisingly, this won’t be Magnan’s first trip to prison, he was previously sentenced to eight years for his connection to a 2003 murder. FTW, indeed.
