This week, Chicago only saw 5 homicides (3 shot, 1 strangling, and 1 case of abuse). This number is relatively low in comparison to previous weeks. With the exception of 1-year-old Jamar Harris, the victims were older than average bringing the average age of death up to 26.5-years-old. The Taste of Chicago saw some violence last night with 3 stabbings. Police identified one of the victims as a known gang member. Let's hope that's it for the Taste.
I wish you a happy and safe 4th of July weekend.
