Over 20 people were shot, one fatally, across another tragically violent weekend in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.

CBS 2 reports “at least 20 people had been shot” by 10:14 p.m. Sunday night. By Monday morning ABC 7 / Chicago Sun-Times reported the number of shooting victims had risen to 22.

The one fatality of the weekend occurred at 8:05 p.m. Friday, when 28-year-old February Burage was shot while walking on the sidewalk “in the 5600-block of West Madison Street.” He was transported to a hospital and pronounced dead.

NBC 5 reports that a 14-year-old girl was among the weekend’s wounded. She was one of three individuals shot Sunday night around 9 p.m. at the Astronaut Flee dance studio.

Police are not sure if there was a single shooter or multiple gunmen, but shots were fired into the studio from outside and the 14-year-old and two adults were wounded.

The girl was transported to the hospital in “fair condition,” while the adults were both in “serious condition.”

On November 13, 2020, Breitbart News reported there had been nearly 100 expressway shootings already this year in Lightfoot’s Chicago.

The shootings left behind 62 victims, six of who succumbed to their wounds.

At Least 40 people were shot, five fatally, last weekend in Lightfoot’s Chicago.
