Nineteen people were shot, four of them fatally, Friday into Saturday night in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.

ABC 7 / Chicago Sun-Times reports that two people were shot and killed at “a gathering” in the “12700 block of South Halsted Street” shortly after midnight Saturday morning.

The two deceased victims–a 34-year-old and a 36-year-old–were both shot in the head. Two other individuals were shot and wounded in the incident.

At 12:30 a.m. Saturday, a man with multiple gunshot wounds was found lying on the ground deceased “in the 6800 block of South Prairie Avenue.”

Approximately three hours later, around 3:40 a.m., a 60-year-old man was shot multiple times following an argument inside a residence “in the 7800 block of South Honore Avenue.” The 60-year-old was transported to a hospital, where he died.

The individual who shot the 60-year-old fled the scene, leaving his handgun behind. He was arrested a short time later.

The Sun-Times maintains a database that shows 630 people were killed in Chicago January 1, 2022, through November 26, 2022.

  1. Since Chicago is like the OK Corral now days, let everyone arm up and let the shootings stop as a threat will end up being an end to a threat. Also make any shooter convicted of 1st degree murder face the death penalty at the end of a rope, not some namby pambey neeedle stick. We know the rope works while the shot is about as effective as a Covid-19 shot.
