Chicago Has Had 3 Fatal Shootings Since Wednesday Morning

At least 10 people were shot, three of them fatally, in Chicago since Wednesday morning, the Tribune reported at 10 a.m.—continuing 2016’s unusual rash of January shootings.

The three fatalities, in chronological order, as recounted to the Tribune by the police:

At roughly 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, an 18-year-old man was found shot in the head in the first block of South Kenton Avenue; he was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital that afternoon.

At 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Elliott Brown, 25, was pronounced dead at the scene of a shooting on the Chicago Skyway.

At 2:50 p.m. on Wednesday, Phillip DuPree, 25, was driving in a Kia with his 62-year-old grandmother in the 7900 block of South Laflin Street when someone shot into their car; DuPree died on the scene.

This rash of Wednesday violence feels especially noteworthy because there are typically more shootings in warmer weather, and Wednesday was unusually cold—the temperature at times fell to single digits.

Most, if not all, also happened during daylight hours, which is less-typical for shootings.
