Twenty-four hours after his son and daughter were killed in a mass shooting, Gabriel Gomez had to return to the Brighton Park scene. Two of his five children, Adriana and Michael Williams, awoke Sunday to the news that a friend had been shot and killed overnight. Adriana, 27, picked up Michael, 24, at the Little Village home where Michael lived with their father and they drove to a makeshift memorial for Daniel Cordova at the corner of West 46th Place and South Rockwell Avenue.
While Estaban Cruz worked behind the counter of his Laberinto Western Wear shop in Gage Park on Tuesday, two detectives paid a visit. "The police came to take the video. It's ok," Cruz said as he restacked a display of Stetson hats around recording equipment. Overnight, his security cameras had captured a fight and shooting across the 2700 block of West 51st Street from his storefront. "One guy died. Monday, maybe 1:30 in the morning," Cruz said. "No good, there's a lot of glass on the street."
Myron Lewis stood inside the doorway of his Champions Esquire Barber Shop applying a fresh coat of white paint. The space was quiet Thursday while he renovated, the normal hive of activity at 79th Street and South Phillips Avenue temporarily home only to fish tanks and empty classic chairs.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
