It has been reported that somewhere between 40 and 50 people were shot in Chicago from Friday night to early Monday morning. Five of those injured by gunshots were attending a BBQ in the 1300 block of West Hastings Street. This address is part of the same housing complex where I photographed the site of Napolean Gilmore's death just last week. Here is a clip from ABC News.
In addition to the 5 homicides listed below, Waseem Smith, Barry Smith, Leon Smith, and Durwin Hackman were also killed this weekend making the total toll 8.
