Campaigning for special ward elections that could give Mayor Harold Washington control of the Chicago City Council drew to a close, marred by a gang shooting that followed complaints of fraud and violence. No one was injured, and a young gang member was charged with attempted murder after police said he fired a shot into a crowd around a campaigning aldermanic candidate. Today's ward elections coincide with party primaries for the U.S. Senate, Illinois' 22 congressional districts, governor and other statewide offices.
