Violent Weekend In Chicago

The Chicago Police report that this weekend was a particularly violent one in Chicago.  At least 40 people were shot throughout Chicago and 7 were killed.  Gun violence seems to be on the upswing.  Police blame gangs for most of the violence.  The violence started after Friday's severe storms.  Saturday night, six people were shot at the annual Puerto Rican Day Festival in Humbolt Park.  The violence continued late Sunday night and early Monday when another 18 people were shot throughout the city.  Some of the shooting victims were children.  However, early reports suggest that none of the children were seriously injured.
