Of those 60 (so far), 9 have died. Those shot include ages ranging from 3 years old to 64 years old. Black on black violence in Chicago sees no age for another weekend.
On Friday night, a 13 year old girl and 2 teenage boys (one 15 and another 16) were shot shortly after a 3 year old. The girl was in her home when shot in the neck and has since died. The boys are said to be in good condition.
Another 3 year old, this one a boy, was shot along with his father while they were driving in their SUV.
The mayor said the shooting was â€œa heinous, unconscionable act of cowardice.” He also said that the boy â€œhad his whole life ahead of him.â€
Mayor Lightfoot is asking the community members to com forward with any information.
The mayor continued, â€œTo the despicable individuals responsible for this senseless act of violence, you have no place in this city, no home in our communities, no shelter to hide.â€
Many more were shoot and some fatally. Head on over to the Chicago Sun Times for further information.
