Twelve people were shot, one fatally, on Monday alone in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports the lone fatality was a 16-year-old boy who was shot in a parking garage by two attackers. He was shot around 2:35 a.m. and transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
One of Monday’s non-fatal shootings involved two moving vehicles “in the 4800 block of West Patterson Avenue” around 7:15 p.m. As the vehicles passed one another an occupant from one opened fire, striking a 30-year-old and a 41-year-old in the other vehicle.
The 30-year-old “was struck in the face and shoulder” while the 41-year-old “was struck in the arm and head.”
Monday’s violence follows a weekend in which 28 were shot, seven fatally, in Mayor Lightfoot’s Chicago.
