Unfortunately, as the temperature rises in the Windy City, so does instances of violence.
Thirteen people were wounded, two of them fatally, in the past 24 hours.
A 19 year-old man and a 22 year-old man both succumed to gun violence.
Among those wounded in non-fatal shootings were a 30-year-old woman and 54-year-old man wounded in what police are calling a gang-related shooting in the 2100 block of North Campbell Avenue in the city’s Logan Square neighborhood around 8 p.m., according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Both fatal shooting victims have not yet been identified and no suspects are in custody in any of the overnight shooting incidents as of Wednesday morning.
The overnight bloodshed, much like the 20 shootings reported citywide in just one night late April 30 into May 1, coincided with temperatures in the area surging into the mid- to upper 80s.
Terrible, tragic news.
Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted by this recent spate of violence.
What can we do to stop the violence in Chicago?
