‘State Of Emergency In Our City’: 11 Dead, 47 Wounded In Weekend Shootings; ‘It’s Absolutely Outrageous’

August 6, 2018 at 7:40 am

CHICAGO (CBS) — A string of mass shootings Sunday morning helped contribute to the bloodiest weekend of the year in Chicago, leaving at least 11 people killed and 47 others wounded in shootings since Friday evening.

Chicago police said dozens were shot in six mass shootings during a seven-hour span early Sunday, with at least four people shot in each of those attacks. Those six shootings alone left a combined three people dead and 28 others wounded.

Police Supt. Eddie Johnson planned to hold an 11 a.m. news conference on Monday to discuss the weekend’s violent crime.

The spate of shootings this weekend started only a day after a group of about 150 anti-violence activists briefly shut down Lake Shore Drive on Thursday with a protest march to Wrigley Field.

Less than a month ago, Rev. Michael Pfleger led thousands of protesters in a march that shut down the Dan Ryan Expressway, calling for an end to gun violence in Chicago.
