Another 18 People Shot In Chicago Since Saturday Afternoon
The fact that, in the city of Chicago, 16 people were shot in citywide shootings before noon on Saturday, April 12, was sadly remarkable in and of itself. (Of those shot, two were killed, including a 17-year-old girl who was walking to a neighbor's house in Woodlawn.)
What's even more astonishing, though, sadly, entirely believable, is that another 18 people were shot in Chicago since Saturday afternoon. Two people died as a result of the shootings.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the shootings took place in neighborhoods such as Logan Square, where three people—two men, one woman—were shot at North and Washtenaw Avenues; Humboldt Park, where a woman was shot in the head late Saturday night as she was driving on Kedzie Avenue; and Pilsen, where a man was shot mere blocks away from where another, earlier shooting took place.
