At least 28 people were shot, five of them fatally, Thanksgiving weekend in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.

Breitbart News noted that 19 people were shot Friday into Saturday night alone, and four of those shooting victims succumbed to their wounds.

ABC 7 / Chicago Sun-Times reported that the number of fatalities reached five by the time the weekend was over.

At 7:50 p.m. Saturday night a 40-year-old man was shot in the head “while on the street in the 4700 block of West Harrison Street.” The 40-year-old was transported to the hospital, where he died.
