Chicago was hit with a burst of gun violence on the Fourth of July, with at least 21 people shot during an 11-hour stretch from Friday evening into Saturday morning, according to police.
That brings to 36 the number of people who have been shot in the city since the long holiday weekend began Thursday afternoon, when two women were hit by gunfire as they sat on a porch just a block from Garfield Park on the West Side.
The holiday shootings have stretched across the city but have been concentrated in the South and West sides. The Englewood and Harrison districts have both seen a handful of people shot over the last two days, and there have been shootings as far south as the Altgeld Gardens neighborhood at the edge of the city to the Rogers Park neighborhood bordering Evanston.
Three of those wounded were shot by police officers in Portage Park, Rogers Park and Englewood. The man shot in Portage Park, around 9:50 p.m., died.

Fifty year ago, before the Leftist revolution, they probably were.
Was Charles Manson right after all?
Take the victims to the local VA hospital...they’ll bleed out before getting help...problem solved.
When do we surrender and pull out?
And PS Chicago bans guns for the law abiding...
It’s been quite cool overnight too (50s).
Wait til the temps heat up.
Thank God they have Obamacare to pay for their medical bills.
Don’t-cha just love gun free zones? It’s only Saturday so there’s still time for more “innocent” victims to be added. Someone from my HS class suggested chit-cago for a re-union. Uh, NO! I went to NTC Great Lakes in the late 60’s and we went to chit-cago for our first liberty. It sucked then. Next time we went to Milwaukee. Of course Milwaukee today isn’t much better from what I hear.
How’s that gun ban in chicago working out for them?
Maybe they should take some pointers from Detroit, where the police chief told all of the residents to arm themselves to the teeth. I heard that IS working out quite well for them, for the residents, and the police that is.
Seems like the annenberg project wasn’t quite as good as touted huh?
Weird huh? Like there’s some sort of plan or something. ;>}
And how many of those shootings are related to the Sinola cartel operating in Chicago
Let me see : open borders , drug mules , disease and pestilence, TB, scabies
We were not a country of financial ,medical and social diseases until Hussein turned us into a "Third World Country" through "Hopey-changey "
“Thank God they have Obamacare to pay for their medical bills.”
Just think of it as mandated contraception; post term abortion services.
Come on, Chicago, you can do better than that. Let’s make it a hundred by Monday!
