More Violence Overnight

By Marcus Gilmer in News on May 31, 2010 2:30PM

After Saturday night's outbreak of violence, Sunday saw a similar rash of shootings that's left as many as 12 injured and 3 dead. The first reported incident occurred yesterday afternoon shortly after 1 p.m. in the city's West Elsdon neighborhood and the last one happened around 5:30 a.m. this morning in the Uptown neighborhood where a man was shot by a bike-riding gunman. Shootings in Brighton Park, Little Village, and Englewood resulted in deaths. In addition to the four shootings deaths this weekend, another man died as a result of injuries sustained in a beating in Bridgeport early Sunday morning. With the five deaths since Saturday afternoon, May 2010 has seen 43 murders, slightly down from last May's total of 47, but that's not saying much.
