1. If I may suggest a revision:

 

"Life saving devices fail, 11 injured."

It should read, Chicago gun laws fail, again.

2. Locking - not Latest Breaking News

Chicago has been averaged somewhere close to 6 shootings a day this year: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-05-28/news/ct-met-violent-weekend-20120529_1_weekend-shootings-holiday-weekend-bronzeville-neighborhood ; while 11 is above that, it seems to be casual variation rather than a news event in itself (and note that none of the victims died). So I don't think this is news of national interest, and thus doesn't fit the LBN Statement of Purpose.
