We hadn't noticed the lull. Did anyone else miss it?
- Sixteen people were shot in an 11-hour period Monday, including two along a Safe Passage route in the West Englewood neighborhood, according to authorities.
The shootings - from Cragin on the Northwest Side to Roseland on the Far South Side - left five dead. Those shot ranged in age from 16 to 56. Several survivors were left in critical condition.
The burst of shootings came after no one was reported shot in the city through most of the day Sunday into early Monday.
You think we would have noticed 33 hours without a shooting victim, but the misses are just as loud and we were responding to shots fired calls everywhere the last two days.
