Six men were killed and at least 28 other people were wounded in shootings throughout the city so far this holiday weekend.
A 5-year-old boy was among the wounded shot early Friday alongside two men at a West Pullman park.
Several hours earlier, a 7-year-old boy was also shot in a park this one in Chatham.
Additionally, Chicago Police fatally shot a male in the Washington Park neighborhood on the South Side.
The most recent murder was reported to police about 5:15 a.m. Friday in the Rogers Park neighborhood. A man was found shot to death in the 7400 block of North Paulina Street, police said. No other details were available.
Nobody is in custody for any of the murders.

They have tarted the “Ghetto Lottery” in the comments to see who can come the closest to the actual number of homicides/shootings by Monday.
Slow week in Chi town.
So now that the media reported that Texas had it’s 500th execution (oh my) when will the MSM start running a clock on the killings in Chi-Congo or any other high crime cities - ??? One wonders. Or how about how many abortions were done in each state by the month ....
Hey nothing to see here, its just Obama’s people celebrating the 4th, moving on
And it’s barely Friday night.
Emanuel the mayor.
A leftist paradise.
All the while singing “Walk like an Egyptian”.
This was as of 5 or 6 AM, I’m sure the number will increase rapidly over the next few nights.
No Zimmerman Lynching trial here.....no need for sharpton or jackson, no need for trials or mobs.
Sooner or later the Ballerina Mayor Boy [that would be Roehm Emmanuel] will be cruising in the wrong neighborhood at 3:00 AM, trolling for rough trade - and will be caught in the crossfire. Awwwwwwww, what a pity.
Really poor shoot/kill ratio too.As usual,the inner city types lack the conviction to learn proper marksmanship. ever did learn,then the city would need dump trucks to haul away the bodies.
I would feel safer at a Muslim Brotherhood demonstration in Egypt than in South Side Chicago.
Any of those dead or wounded white?
Oh no! George Zimmerman must be on the loose in Chicago.
Just doing the killing that the Mob (city government) and CPD can’t do publicly.
They could be Obama’s sons.
I’m pretty sure it is safer in Cairo than it is in Chicago.
Time to take the guns away from anybody that voted for Obama.
I think it would make a very interesting, and inexpensive, sociological experiment to select one of the more violent parts of Chicago, and post vigilante posters around the place, in the early morning hours.
“WARNING! NOTICE IS GIVEN THAT ANY PERSON FOUND COMMITTING ACTS OF LAWLESS VIOLENCE WILL BE SUMMARILY EXECUTED! — Vigilance Committee”
This is not just directed at the criminals, but at the government, and most of all at the people who live in that area.
To the criminals it says that they may be killed without warning. To the local government it says that it has failed in its most important duty. And to the people who live there, it hopefully will give them the idea that the law is theirs to enforce, and not to wait around for it to be enforced.
The first effect would be the government having a hysterical hissy fit, then threatening the vigilantes and decrying people “taking the law into their own hands.”
For their part, the criminals might tone it down some, as they don’t know if it’s for real or not.
And hopefully, some honest citizens might decide that if they take out some of the bad criminals, it would be blamed on the vigilantes. And thus, the vigilantism would become self generating.
Hold me closer tiny dancer mayor.
