- Four people were killed and dozens wounded in a spate of shootings during a muggy first weekend of summer.
Friday, the longest day of the year, was the deadliest, with three killed and at least 11 wounded in 10 separate shooting incidents throughout the city. Saturday saw at least six shootings, including one fatality. Ten people were wounded in at least eight shootings Sunday morning.
Those killed include a 31-year-old man who was recently freed after more than a year in jail and a 21-year-old man who had been in the country for only a few months.
But as heyjackass.com points out, the powers-that-be will hang their hats on this:
- At this point, 7am Sunday, EMS has had a slower weekend than last.
Last weekend: 3 dead, 32 wounded
This weekend: 5 dead, 22 wounded
Last Sunday was the money shot and with 80s and sun today, it'll be a foot race to the finish.
Less ambulance runs must mean crime is down!
