50 People Shot, 5 Killed, Over Weekend in Mayor Lightfoot’s Chicago


From Breitbart News

The first firearm-related fatality of the weekend occurred Friday around 5:15 p.m., the second about 8:30 p.m. the same night, and the third at 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

The fourth fatality occurred about 7 p.m. Saturday and the fifth around 10:15 p.m. Saturday.

The Chicago Tribune reports 673 people were killed in Chicago between January 1, 2020, and November 9, 2020. The Tribune notes that a total of 3,619 people were shot–fatal and non-fatal combined–between January 1, 2020, and November 9, 2020.

Breitbart News reported 23 people were shot in Mayor Lightfoot’s Chicago on Monday, November 16, 2020, alone.

In one shooting four people were shot. One fatally and three with non-fatal injuries. They were just standing on the street when the shots rang out. No motive has been determined and it could have just been a shooting because of opportunity or maybe it was revenge for some transgression. Who knows? Police in Chicago solve 47% of the cases involving white victims and a dismal 22% where the victim is Black.

In another shooting there were two men in a car when someone walked up to the car unleashing multiple bullets. One died and one was only wounded.
