At least five people have been killed and 40 others wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday evening.

In the most recent fatal attack, a man was shot dead while driving in Humboldt Park early Sunday.

The 21-year-old was driving a Jeep about 1:40 a.m. in the 3100 block of West Augusta Boulevard when a car pulled up next to him and someone inside fired shots, Chicago police said.

The man was shot in the head, police said. A passenger in the Jeep drove him to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Less than an hour earlier, a woman was fatally shot in Bucktown on the Northwest Side.

She was riding in a vehicle about 1 a.m. in the 2100 block of North Oakley Avenue when another vehicle drove up alongside and someone inside opened fire, striking the woman, police said. The 32-year-old was dropped off at Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Humboldt Park saw another fatal shooting Saturday night.

About 9:15 p.m., a man and a woman were ambushed in the 3200 block of West Division Street by three gunmen who fired shots at them, police said. The man, 24, was rushed to Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. The 25-year-old woman was struck in the neck and rushed to Stroger Hospital in critical condition.

Friday night, a woman was killed and two other people injured, including a 15-year-old boy, in a shooting in Back of the Yards.

The group was standing on the sidewalk about 7:30 p.m. in the 5400 block of South Bishop Street when a male shot them from an unknown distance, Chicago police said.

The woman, 28, was shot in the head and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where she was pronounced, police said.

The teen boy was struck in the leg and taken to the same hospital in good condition, police said. The man, 31, suffered a gunshot wound to the shoulder and was treated and released on scene.

Also Friday, a 31-year-old man was killed in a drive-by shooting in Parkway Gardens on the South Side.

About 5:20 p.m, the man was on the sidewalk near 64th Street and King Drive when a light-colored vehicle pulled up and someone inside began firing shots at him, police said.

He suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, police said.

In nonfatal shootings, three men were shot Friday in the East Side neighborhood.

The shooting happened in the 10000 block of South Indianapolis Avenue just after 8 p.m., according to police. The men were traveling eastbound on Indianapolis when they heard several shots.

An 18-year-old man was shot in the buttocks and another man, 21, suffered a gunshot wound to the right arm, police said. Both men were transported to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where their conditions were stabilized.

A third man, 22, was struck in the leg and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where his condition was also stabilized, police said.

At least 34 others were wounded in citywide shootings since 5 p.m. Friday.

A 26-year-old mother shot multiple times in a drive-by shooting was among six killed Monday alone in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.

The first shooting homicide on Monday occurred just before 4:30 a.m., when a 70-year-old woman was ambushed and shot to death while sitting in her car outside a grocery store.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported two men “were in the 5000 block of West St. Paul Avenue” when someone opened fire on them about 12:35 p.m. Both men were killed.

ABC 7 explained a 26-year-old mother, Kristina de Jesus, was shot multiple times during a drive-by attack outside her home Monday evening. The mother of two was taken to a hospital where her six-year-old son kept asking doctors to get her to wake up.

It is just the latest tragic example of a chronic wave of gun violence that has afflicted the city for years, as Breitbart News has continually pointed out:ahawkinshttps://imasdk.googleapis.com/js/core/bridge3.475.0_en.html#goog_1406483084

Everything about her was innocent.

Three major U.S. cities struggling to curb a surge in gun violence collectively had at least 70 people shot, 16 dead, including a 7-year-old girl, in multiple shootings this weekend, according to police.

The shootings in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago came as all three cities have seen sharp increases in the numbers of shootings in 2021.

In Chicago, at least 52 people were shot between 6 p.m. on Friday and 11:59 p.m. Sunday, nine of them fatally, according to the Chicago Police Department. Twenty-three of the shootings occurred over just a 4-hour period between 12:26 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. on Sunday, according to incident reports reviewed by ABC News.

Just before 3 p.m. on Sunday, a 7-year-old girl was killed and her 6-year-old sister was seriously wounded when someone opened fire on a parked vehicle they were sitting in the Belmont Central neighborhood on the city’s Northwest Side, police said. The 7-year-old was shot in the chest and later died at a hospital.

Regina Broughton told ABC station WLS in Chicago that her granddaughter, Serenity Broughton, was the child who was killed and Serenity’s little sister, Aubrey, is fighting for her life at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago.

Prior to this weekend, more than 2,123 people had been shot in Chicago this year, which is a 12% increase from the same time period in 2020, according to police department crime statistics. Before this weekend, Chicago has recorded 478 homicides, a 2% increase over last year at this time.

The shootings this weekend in Chicago followed last weekend’s violence, which saw 73 people shot in the city, 11 fatally.

Lori Lightfoot Snaps at Reporters over Questions About Officer Ella French’s Murder

Published

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) snapped at reporters following questions about officer Ella French’s murder and the lead-up to officers turning their backs to the Mayor at the hospital.

The Daily Mail noted that a number of officers wanted a “bagpipe procession” while French’s body was being transported to the medical examiner’s office, but First Deputy Police Supt. Eric Carter rejected the idea, saying, “We don’t have 20 minutes for this s**t.”

Lightfoot supported Carter’s decision and suggested the officers pushing for the procession were trying to “hijack” the night.

She said, “There was — let me choose my words carefully — well-meaning but not well-organized group that wanted to hijack the procession, which would have meant that the family would have been delayed exponentially in getting to the morgue.”

The Chicago Sun-Times noted that Lightfoot pointed to restrictions issued by the coroner, suggesting that adding things to slow the procession would have been unfair to French’s family.

Reporters also brought up the fact that approximately 30 officers turned their backs to Lightfoot on Saturday night when she arrived at the hospital where French’s wounded partner was being treated. They asked if she had “forced her way into the hospital,” thereby angering the officers.

Lightfoot responded, “I don’t force my way anywhere. And that’s offensive, frankly, that you would ask me that question.”

Breitbart News pointed out that the father of French’s wounded partner reportedly “excoriated” Lightfoot to her face when she came to the 7th floor of the hospital.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that sources indicated the father “blamed [Lightfoot] for what had happened,” yelling at her.

NBC 5 quoted Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara telling Fox News that Lightfoot was told not to go to the 7th floor because that was where the critically wounded officer’s family was waiting to speak with doctors. Lightfoot went to the 7th floor anyway, leading Catanzara to believe “[the Mayor] still thought she knew best and went up there against the advice of family.”
