At Least 71 Shot, 11 Killed in Chicago in Weekend Violence

7700 block of South South Shore

The Chicago Tribune, citing police records and other sources, reported that during one period of less than three hours, 25 people were shot during five multiple-injury attacks.

Dozens of people have been wounded in weekend shootings across Chicago police said.

At least 11 people have been killed and a reported 70 have been wounded after a weekend of gun violence in Chicago.

Giuliani cited the murders as an endorsement for former policeman Garry McCarthy for mayor, who Giuliani says can lower the city's homicide rate.

The majority of the incidents reportedly occurred in Chicago's south and west sides.

Hospitals in Chicago were overwhelmed over the weekend dealing with the victims of gun violence.

"Don't think for a moment people don't know who in the neighborhood was responsible", he said. "Where's the accountability for them?" I never hear people saying 'These individuals out here in the streets need to stop pulling the trigger.' I never hear that.

The pastor denies the charges while USA officials have publicly insisted that Brunson is innocent and should be freed. It added that the US' "aggressive attitude serves no objective ", and vowed that it would respond in equal measure.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel asked residents to report those they believe were responsible for the weekend shootings. "We are a better city", Emanuel said.

Johnson told reporters there were some promising leads in investigations of the weekend bloodshed, but he did not elaborate and provided few updates on crime statistics for the third most populous US city. One paramedic described Saturday evening into Sunday morning as "a war zone".

"This is just out of control right now", Dr. Donovan Price of Street Pastors told CBS Chicago. The violence has spilled over into Monday morning, including a murder that happened just after midnight in the Roseland neighborhood not far from Chicago State University. Policing genius Jerry McCarthy can do for Chicago what I did for NYC. The count served as a stark reminder that the root causes of Chicago's notorious crime problem have yet to be addressed, community members and city officials said.

Although the drop was significant, the total still exceeded the combined the number of killings in New York City and Los Angeles, which are the two U.S. cities bigger than Chicago.

Nevertheless, Chicago´s official murder count, at more than 320 killings so far this year, was the highest in the country and far eclipsed those of America´s two largest cities - NY and Los Angeles.

Police said gunmen targeted a block party, a gathering after a funeral, and other gatherings on a night where thousands of people gathered for a downtown concert.

"An offender or some type of rival gang sees a large group of people. and they shoot into a crowd, no matter who they hit", he said.
