Chicago har lenge hatt et rykte som en voldelig by. Men denne helgen toppet det seg: 40 skutt. Reuters.
At least 40 people were shot, and four killed, in weekend violence in the third-largest U.S. city, the NBC affiliate in Chicago reported.
The deaths included an 11-year-old girl, shot in the head inside a first-floor bedroom on Friday night after someone fired a gun from outside the house, said Chicago Police Officer Jose Estrada.
Shamiya Adams, who died the next day, had been sitting on the floor during a sleep-over at her best friend’s home, the Chicago Tribune reported.
The Chicago Police Department on Sunday had not released an official tally of the weekend violence. But reports of another outbreak of gunfire came as the city has been grappling with a wave of summer violence.
