Guess the thugs missed the “crime cancellation” notice.
From MyFoxChicago: At least 43 people were wounded — two of them fatally — in gun violence incidents within city limits over the weekend.
The weekend’s latest fatal shooting happened Friday in Englewood on the South Side. About 11:51 p.m., Reginald Watkins, 23, was was sitting in a vehicle in the 6200 block of South Laflin Street, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. He got into an argument with a group of people across the street and gunfire rang out.
Watkins was hit in the chest and ran to the corner of 62nd and Laflin where he collapsed, authorities said. He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he later died.
Earlier, another man was fatally wounded in a drive-by a few miles south in Fernwood. He was in a vehicle about 7:20 p.m. in the 200 block of West 105th Place when a silver-colored vehicle drove past and someone inside opened fire, police said. The man, 21, was hit multiple times on his body, police said. He took himself to Roseland Community Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
In non-fatal gun violence, seven people were hurt in a shootout Saturday near Fullerton beach in Lincoln Park on the North Side.
About 3:20 a.m., a group of people walking towards the lakefront in the first block of West Fullerton Parkway got into an argument with a group that was leaving, police said.
People from both groups pulled out guns and opened fire after the argument escalated, police said.
Three women — 28, 27 and 24 years old — were taken to local hospitals with gunshot wounds to the leg, arm and shoulder, respectively, police said. Two men, 28 and 25, were both shot in the leg and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Those five people were in good condition, police said.
At least 31 others were hurt in gun violence incidents from 5 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday across Chicago. Last weekend, shootings left nine people dead and 32 others wounded.
