At Least 14 Shot Friday into Sunday Morning in Mayor Brandon Johnson’s Chicago

At least 14 people were shot, four of them fatally, Friday into Sunday morning across Mayor Brandon Johnson’s (D) Chicago.

FOX 32 reported the first two fatal shooting victims of the weekend were high school students, shot and killed while exiting Innovations High School just before 1 p.m. Friday.

The shots rang out after “a dark sedan and an SUV pulled up” and individuals exited the vehicles and opened fire.

ABC 7 noted the weekend’s third fatal shooting was discovered at 2:50 a.m. Saturday 8300 block of South Vincennes Avenue, when a 28-year-old with a gunshot wound to his chest was found.

The fourth fatal shooting killed a man, who apparently shot before crashing his vehicle into a tree in Englewood “shortly after midnight” Sunday.

NBC 5 reported “671 people were shot and killed in Chicago throughout 2023.”  The Chicago Sun-Times observed that 24 people have already been killed in Chicago in 2024.
