Responding to an unusually bloody night of shootings that left seven dead and 13 others wounded in just 12 hours, Chicago police Supt. Jody Weis said today that he’ll put his department’s summer crime-fighting plan in place early.
“Last night was not a good night,” Weis said at a news conference this afternoon at police headquarters.
Details of the summer crime-fighting strategy could be announced as early as Monday.
- No arrests have been made in the shootings, which pushed the murder toll in Chicago so far this year to 97. At this point last year, 81 people had been killed.
