Only 3 Dead, 5 Wounded In Gun Shootings Since Late Friday in Chicago: Tough Gun Control May Be Working, Not!



These are pretty low statistics for the city of Chicago who routinely have 10 to 25 people shot every weekend.  I thing the usual suspects were too busy buying Christmas presents for their hood rats to be able to shoot somebody


Three people are dead and at least five people have been wounded in gun violence in the city late Friday through early Sunday, police said.
Hakeem Walton, 20, of Hammond, Ind., was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn at 6:35 p.m. Sunday, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Roughly 16 hours earlier on Saturday, police say Walton was in the backseat of a car in the 2700 block of East 84th Street when gunfire rang out and the back window of the vehicle shattered about 2:15 a.m. Police initially said the shooting occurred in the 8500 block of South Burnham Avenue.
When the other passengers turned to Walton, they saw he was shot in the back of the head, they told police.

The driver of the vehicle took Walton to Advocate Trinity Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, police said. He was later transferred to Christ Hospital, where he died.

About 2:15 a.m. Sunday, a male died after being shot in the head in the North Side Logan Square neighborhood in the 3500 block of West Diversey Avenue, police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said. The medical examiner’s office could not immediately confirm the death.

About 5:19 a.m. Sunday, a male died after being shot in the 3300 block of West Crystal Street in the Humboldt Park neighborhood, police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said. The medical examiner’s office could not immediately confirm the death.
