Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Hotair.com: “Another Chicago weekend of violence: 64 shot and 13 killed”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Another weekend of violence in Chicago with 64 people shot and 13 of them killed. As has become usual in Chicago, several of the casualties were children. Incredibly, these numbers constitutes a dip in violence compared to other recent weekends:

Fifteen-year-old Terrance Malden, who was gunned down about 4:50 p.m. Friday in Jeffery Manor on the South Side, was the weekend’s first victim. Five other teenagers were wounded in separate shootings between then and Monday morning.

The alarming numbers marked a dip from the gun violence that befell the city over the Fourth of July weekend, when 79 people were shot, 15 fatally. Eleven of those victims were minors, and two of the children died from their injuries.

At least two fourteen year olds were shot over the weekend but both survived. Saturday night someone targeted a group of three women who were standing in the street around 9:40 pm. A 33-year-old woman died and the other two women survived. The victims were holding a vigil with candles in the street for someone who was killed near the same spot two years ago.

There was a mass shooting in which five men were shot in Humboldt Park early Sunday morning. One 53-year-year-old was shot in the neck and killed and the other victims are expected to survive.
