At least 17 people were shot, four fatally, Friday into Sunday in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the first fatality occurred at 8:45 p.m. Friday, following an argument in an apartment. A 16-year-old boy was allegedly beaten as a result of the dispute, and when he fled the scene he was pursued, shot, and fatally wounded.
A 32-year-old male sitting in a vehicle “at a gas station in the first block of West 111th Street” was shot just before 10 p.m. Friday when someone in another vehicle pulled up beside him and opened fire. A passenger got behind the wheel and drove the 32-year-old to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Hours later, at 3:22 a.m. Saturday, an unresponsive 32-year-old was found “in front of a home in the 9100 block of South Emerald Avenue.” He had been shot and was transported to a hospital, where they pronounced him dead.
Just after midnight Sunday a man “in the first block of West 91st Street” was shot multiple times in the back following an argument. He died at the scene.
