According to the Chicago Sun-Times, this past weekend was the most violent of the year in Chicago.

At least 41 people were injured – 7 killed – in shootings across the city between Friday and Sunday night.

From the Huffington Post:

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said Monday morning that the youngest victim was 15-year-old Michael Westley, who died Sunday.

Chicago Police officials told the newspaper that more shootings took place during the same weekend last year and that there have been fewer murders so far in 2013 than any year since the mid-1960s.

Another bloody weekend in the Windy City.

The violence has got to STOP.
