CHICAGO MURDERS SOAR: 67 SHOT, 11 KILLED OVER JULY 4 WEEKEND–SO FAR

 

 

 

” There were 67 people shot and 11 killed over the long Independence Day weekend in Chicago. Of the 67, eight were shot, with one killed, in a single Saturday evening attack in the West Side neighborhood of Lawndale.

For the 28 days leading up to this past Father’s Day weekend–another bloodbath itself, in which 46 were shot and 8 were killed, including one shot by a police officer–murder numbers matched 2012 exactly with 41. Chicago Police data show that in the two weeks following, another 27 were gunned down and killed.”
