The Chicago Tribune reported that as of late Sunday afternoon, seven people had been killed and 41 wounded by gun violence during the extended weekend.
Much of the violence occurred during an eight-hour period. From 9:20 p.m. on Saturday to 4:45 a.m. on Sunday, the newspaper said, 30 people were shot across the city, three of them fatally, including Amari. Several of the shootings involved multiple victims.
Officials said a 26-year-old woman was wounded when someone opened fire about 11:55 p.m. Saturday in the Humboldt Park neighborhood, on the city’s West Side.
Additionally, a 26-year-old man was fatally shot in the Albany Park neighborhood and a 26-year-old man was gunned down in the South Shore neighborhood.
The police also said that two men, ages 25 and 31, were killed after dawn on Sunday when somebody fired on their sport utility vehicle, which sped away and crashed.
During last year’s Fourth of July weekend in Chicago, 82 people were shot during an 84-hour span, 16 of them fatally.
But little has been reported, and no Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, SPLC, or anyone else will touch this.
