At Least 70 Shot, 11 Dead in Violent Chicago Weekend

At Least 70 Shot, 11 Dead in Violent Chicago Weekend

Chicago's mayor says one lesson from a wave of weekend violence is that people who live in neighborhoods where the shootings occurred have to be willing to name potential suspects.

No one is in custody. They're all expected to survive.

Two people were killed and 28 were wounded between midnight and 3 a.m., including at least 13 teenagers, one of whom was shot in the head and killed, the Sun-Times reported. From Saturday morning to Sunday morning, the total was 37 shot and three dead, the newspaper said. CPD also says it has implemented a data-driven policing strategy that helps police predict crime before it happens so they can put officers in the right places at the right time.

Chicago has recorded more than 300 murders in 2018, more than any other US city.

Additionally, Ford noted that the inaction of the Chicago Police force has caused a distrust to brew between citizens and the people that are supposed to protect them. "We will not. I promise you that we will not be defeated", he told CBS Chicago.

But although June marked 15 straight months of fewer killings and shootings, on 25 June, at least 21 were shot and two died.

Access to Stroger Hospital was tightened.

"Over the past 24 hours, Stroger's trauma unit received an unusually high volume of patients", said Caitlin Polochak, the hospital's communications manager.

Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and the city's police superintendent made an emotional plea for help in holding repeat gun offenders accountable after a deadly weekend in the IL city. After an event announcing an expansion of the Riverwalk, Mayor Rahm Emanuel voiced the need to create more jobs, not just in the central business district, but on the South and West Sides as well.

In vowing to rehire as many as 400 retired police detectives if he is elected, Vallas also criticized the Emanuel administration for having "one of the worst clearance rates for homicides and other violent crimes among America's major cities". Although the drop was significant, it exceeded the combined number of killings in New York City and Los Angeles, which are the two USA cities bigger than Chicago.

As for Mayor Emanuel, Ford said, "He must take away the thought that Chicago is a Trump-free zone because taxpayers deserve to have the president come in bring resources to the community".
