72 Shot in Chicago in Wave of Holiday Weekend Violence | NBC Chicago
But....but...but doesn't Chicago have laws against guns? And it looks like great police work too. :roll:Twelve men were killed and at least 60 other people were wounded in shootings throughout Chicago during the holiday weekend, including eight people who were shot in a West Side attack Saturday.
The weekend's latest shooting took place Sunday afternoon around 3:30 p.m. in the 4700 block of South Ashland when two men were shot, one fatally.
According to preliminary information, one man, whose age was not known, was killed in the shooting after being shot in the back and another was taken in critical condition with wounds to the arm and chest, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Joshua Purkiss.
Nobody is in custody for any of the murders.
