51 wounded, 3 dead after another violent weekend in Chicago as mayor blames Trump

Three people have been killed and 48 more have been wounded so far this weekend in shootings across Chicago. The shootings occurred between 6 p.m. on Friday and 11:59 p.m. Sunday.

The numbers are the lowest the city has seen in over a month, when 33 people were shot and two killed between 5 p.m. June 12 and 5 a.m. June 15. Last weekend, citywide gun violence killed 10 people and wounded 60 more.

The weekend’s latest fatal shooting left a person dead in Chatham on the South Side.

The male, whose age isn’t known, was driving about 1:28 a.m. in the 8600-block of South Cottage Grove Avenue when someone in a black sedan fired shots, Chicago police said. He was struck in the head, abdomen and leg.

As the violence continues Mayor Lori Lightfoot pushes blame on Donald Trump and Republicans.

Federal officers are in Chicago to focus on gangs, guns and drugs; Mike Tobin gives an update.
