5 dead, including 7-year old, in Chicago weekend violence

Chicago suffered another weekend of deadly gun violence that took the life of a 7-year old girl. 

Five people were killed and 22 others were hurt in gunfire across the city, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. The girl was killed Sunday afternoon at a McDonald’s drive-thru in the Homan Square neighborhood.

Father of girl killed also has serious injuries

A gunman opened fire and shot the young girl repeatedly, and she died at a hospital. Her 28-year old father was left with serious injuries.

Police say the shooting was gang-related and somehow linked to another, non-fatal drive-by shooting hours later at a Popeyes in Humboldt Park that left a man, 33, and woman, 19, with serious and critical injuries, respectively.

The first fatality of the weekend occurred Friday around 7 p.m. when an 18-year old man, Jawon L. Ward, was gunned down inside of a Lawndale business. A 44-year old woman was injured in the shoulder and back but was otherwise in good condition.

Also in Lawndale, a 33-year old man was killed Saturday evening. He was found unresponsive around 10:30 p.m. inside of an alley with shots to the chest. Early Saturday morning, a 25-year old man, Verico Veal, was killed in a drive-by shooting in Morgan Park on the Far South Side around 3 a.m.

Another drive-by Sunday evening in Austin, on the West Side, claimed the life of a 43-year old man who was standing on the sidewalk. Another man, 22, was injured in the leg but was otherwise in good condition.

Chicago racked by gun violence, unrest

Chicago suffers routinely high rates of gun violence, and 2020 was the second deadliest year for the city since the 1990s crime wave.

So far, 177 people have been killed this year, 32 more than this time in 2020, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The carnage comes amid a spate of mass shootings across America that has fueled calls for gun control from Democrats.

Chicago has also been a focal point of unrest after the police shootings of 13-year old Adam Toledo, in Chicago, and Daunte Wright in Minnesota.

Like many cities, Chicago is bracing for mob violence as the Derek Chauvin trial nears its end. Windows downtown are boarded up.

  1. And the demented democrats think that Minnesota is bad. in the reservation to get rich and stay in power. They still keep the BLM and others l

    1. WHY ISN’T THE BLM BUFFOONS ALL UP IN ARMS ABOUT THE CONSTANT STEADY STREAM OF DEAD BLACS–MEN,WOMEN & LATELY A 7 YR OLD LITTLE GIRL- IN CHICAGO ? THEY OBCESS OVER A PUNK THUG DRUG ADDICT KILLED BY A COP BUT SEEM TO CARE LESS ABOUT THE BLACKS KILLED IN AMERICAS STREETS BY THEIR BROTHERN SICK PUNKS. BLM IS NOTHING MORE THAN A MONEY GRABBING,CORPORATION THREATENING, MONEY LAUNDERING MARXIST DOMESTIC TERRORIST ORGANIZATION. BLM COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE BLACK COMMUNITY, THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT SPREADING HATE,CREATING VIOLENCE AND INCITING RIOTS. THEY SHOULD CHANGE THEIR NAME TO “W.A.S.” WE ARE SCUM!

    2. well they are black people killing each other so it is ok. It is just their culture.

      Kind of like the Chinese government raping their minority population with cattle prods is their culture: biden said so.

  3. Where is Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson? They don’t give a damn! They’re all over the country every time a black person is killed!

  4. Would tighter gun control stop criminals from getting guns? Did prohibition stop people from drinking? Did the war on drugs stop people from getting high?
    Banning certain guns will simply make gun running criminals rich, and honest responsible gun owners criminals or victims IMHO.

    1. Nothing is going to Stop the CRIMINALS, THEY WILL FIND A WAY. ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES FROM TOP GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS….

  5. Before the government goes after everyone’s guns, they should first clean up Chicago and other large city gangs. Not just arrest and release, but put them in prison for a very long time or execute them. That includes the BLM and Antifa who don’t necessarily kill people, but they do cause a lot of damage and civil unrest. Another country would not put up with the craziness we se in the USA. I am sick of politicians wanting to control the average American instead of addressing the real problem with gangs and losers.

  6. Democrats are getting a cut of the drug money. That’s why they keep the border open – to enable the drug flow. And that’s why they don’t crack down on the gangs.

  7. SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONFLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!
