It’s been a deadly weekend in Chicago, with seven shooting deaths in a 24 hour period. All victims were men in their 20s and 30s. The shootings took place between 6:15 a.m. Saturday and 6 a.m. on Sunday, and take place throughout the city; North, South, and West.

While seven did not make it, even more were shot and are surviving. Five people were shot in separate incidents spanning two hours Saturday night.

All shooting incidents are still under investigation and no one is in custody. [Trib, WBBM]
