Four children were among 65 people shot across Chicago this weekend, 18 of them fatally. Three of the children were killed. The weekend gun violence brought Chicago past 300 homicides so far this year, the benchmark that Supt. David Brown challenged the police department to stay under in April. Last year, the city didn’t break 300 homicides until early August, according to Sun-Times data.
“This is happening far too often. Too many times children are killed by senseless violence, and not only just children, but grown-ups also,” Police Chief Fred Waller said, addressing the city. “When is this going to stop? When are we going to say enough is enough?”
The grim total for the weekend violence in Chicago is 65 people shot, 18 of them fatally. Among the dead were 4 children. https://t.co/qltFrFTtBz— Tom Bevan (@TomBevanRCP) June 29, 2020

I just calculated there's 235 civilian shootings for every 1 by cop. (7 shootings by police and more than 1650 civilian shootings.)— david chicago (@LogicFacts_R_Us) June 28, 2020
The rate of shooting by cops in Chicago is less than the national average.
