Thirty-two people were shot in Chicago last weekend, the youngest among them a 3-year-old boy shot in the leg while he was outside playing tag. Four homicides over the weekend and two more Monday morning pushed Chicago’s homicide count so far this year to 95, double the same period last year.
The city has also more than doubled the amount of people shot – about 420 this year compared to 193 last year. *
