22 Shot, 1 Dead in Quiet Weekend
At least 22 people were wounded in shootings around Chicago roughly between noon Saturday and noon Sunday, including a man who died Sunday morning after he was shot in the head, police said.
Nearly half of the 15 separate shootings appear to be gang-related, including the fatal incident, Chicago police Superintendent Jody Weis said Sunday. At least two of the other victims have refused to cooperate with police, "which makes the job of our detectives ... far more difficult," Weis said.
- At 8:11 p.m., a 47-year-old man who is possibly homeless, was shot in the right arm while standing on the street on the 29200 [sic] block of North Milwaukee Avenue, a Shakespeare district police captain said. He was taken to Norwegian-American Hospital in “stable” condition. The suspect fled on foot and no one was in custody Sunday.
And remember, every barbecue shooting Monday falls into the "outdoor" category. Watch yourselves as the beer starts flowing around noon and continues well into the night.
