Thirteen people have been killed and at least 54 others injured in shootings across Chicago so far over the Fourth of July weekend.
Nine of the weekends victims were minors, and two of the children died from their injuries.
A 14-year-old boy was among four people killed in a shooting that wounded four others Saturday night in Englewood on the South Side.
They were at a large gathering in the street about 11:35 p.m. in the 6100 block of South Carpenter Street when four males walked up and started shooting, according to Chicago police. The 14-year-old boy was hit in the back and pronounced dead at Comer Childrens Hospital.
Three other male victims were pronounced dead, two at the scene and one at the University of Chicago Medical Center, police said. Their ages were not immediately known.
An 11-year-old boy with a graze wound to the ankle and a 15-year-old boy with a gunshot wound to the abdomen were both taken to Comer in fair condition, police said.
A 35-year-old man shot in the hip, leg, arm and wrist was taken to St. Bernard Hospital and transferred to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, police said. A 29-year-old man shot in the foot was taken to St. Bernard Hospital in fair condition.

What person or business in their right mind would look at Chicago and say... ‘I want to live there.’
It it called the “windy city” because of the wind whistling through the bullet holes in the bodies of blacks whose lives (apparently) don’t matter? Great leadership thee, you DIMocRAT losers. More popcorn!!!
It's black deaths, so you'd think the media would be saying something. Why aren't more blacks talking about it and asking questions?

As bad as these numbers are, how high would they have to be in order to flatten the curve going forward!
What are the comparable statistics in Kabul, Lagos, and other hot spots?
mayor leadfoot is disillusioned, stupid, or both.
This is an unforgivable travesty being played over and over and over. At what point does someone,anyone stop this. It’s up to the people in that town to arm up and take the streets back. Starting with marching on the city leaders and tar and feather them. Then it’s open season on the bad guys,no bag limit. Otherwise I don’t want to hear about it anymore.
Lets go for triple digits!
Democrat rot, BLM is a white Marxist anarchists dream come true, floyd who?

To quote from Saving Private Ryan, “Don’t shoot. Let them burn.”
I know it is crazy, but there are high rise condo’s being built all over the downtown area. At least four massive condo projects going up around McCormick Place.
