More Than 50 People Shot In Chicago Father’s Day Weekend


Father’s Day weekend wasn’t the happy holiday portrayed on social media for everyone.

Once again Chicago is topping the crime chart with more than 50 people being shot over the weekend. Obama’s hometown is experiencing a daily threat to the lives of the American citizens living there. Oddly that threat is coming from American citizens as well.

Via Daily Caller:

Fifty-seven people suffered gunshot injuries and nine people died from Friday evening to Sunday night, reports DNA Info. Thirteen people were shot in a three-hour period alone.

A 16-year-old boy died while walking standing on the side of the street Sunday. A person inside a car shot him while driving by. The boy was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he later died from his wounds, police said.

Two hundred people have been shot in Chicago so far in June with a total of 1,500 people shot since the year started. Total homicides have reached 279.

The numbers for this weekend’s shootings are almost on par with last year’s numbers. Fifty six people were shot in 2016 and thirteen of them died from their wounds.

Crime in Chicago hasn’t improved at all since last year, if anything things seem to continue to decline.
