Another 14 people shot in Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago in just over a day

At least 14 people were shot, including four fatally, from Friday evening into Saturday as violent crime continues in Chicago.

The shootings under Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot extend multiple weekends of violence that have caused concern among residents and tourists.

“The third fatal shooting was discovered at 5:17 a.m. Saturday, when a 19-year-old was found ‘in the 3900 block of West Fillmore Street’ with a gunshot wound to his chest,” Breitbart News reported.

“A 28-year-old man was shot and killed Saturday morning at 6 a.m. while standing outside, talking to another individual ‘in the 9400 block of South St. Lawrence Avenue,'” the report added.

Over the entire weekend, a total of 40 people were shot, including six fatally. CBS News tweeted that at least five of the victims were under the age of 18.

The news continues to worsen for the city and its leaders with no clear answers on stopping the high number of shootings.
