Twenty-three people were shot Monday alone in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the shooting victims included two teenage girls–a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old–who were shot “near Pulaski Road and Lexington Street” around 4:40 p.m. Their wounds were not life-threatening.

A five-year-old boy was also shot on Monday. He was “playing with an iPad on a couch…inside a home in the 200 block of West 115th Street” around 7:30 p.m. when shots were fired at the home from a passing vehicle. The gunfire left the 5-year-old in critical condition.

Four people were shot in one incident around 7:23 p.m. “in the 2700 block of South Dearborn Street.” The four individuals were standing and talking when another individual walked up, an argument ensued, and shots were fired. Two 22-year-olds, a 29-year-old, and an 18-year-old were wounded.
