Five people were killed and at least 16 other people -- including four teenagers and a 72-year-old woman -- were wounded in shootings across the city since Friday night.
The most recent fatal shooting occurred late Sunday in the Lawndale neighborhood, when 35-year-old Ernest J. Carter and a woman were sitting in a car parked in the 4000 block of West Cullerton Street, authorities said.
About 11 p.m., two gunmen approached the pair on foot, opening fire into the car from behind, police said.
Both were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital with gunshot wounds to the back. Carter, of the 4000 block of West 21st Street, was struck multiple times and died at Mount Sinai Hospital at 11:45 p.m., the medical examiners office said. The woman, 37, was in serious condition, police said.
Earlier Sunday afternoon a man was found dead from a gunshot wound to the head in the 1600 block of West Jonquil Terrace in the Rogers Park neighborhood, police said. The body of 22-year-old Blake Lamb was found about 3:45 p.m.
Lamb, of the 7600 block of North Bosworth Avenue, had been shot multiple times.
About an hour earlier on the South Side, a teen boy died after he was shot in the back in the South Deering neighborhood about 2:50 p.m., police said.

Oh outrage outrage!!!!! No justice no peace!!!!!
Last weekend it was 12 deaths and 41 shot
They are improving.
Black on Black Crime...where is the outrage?
Are these victims worth less than Trayvon Martin?
That Chicago City Morgue must be one busy place...
who cares? we’re only supposed to care about trayvon
Who cares. It only gets a headline if the shooter is white... If Jesse Jackson and Revrund Al don’t care about the pandemic of dead black kids in Chicago, I’ll be damned if I will.
Damn aren’t these people even trying?
Less than 30% efficiency
Last weekend included July 4 and 5, four days. So they are keeping up with their average.
Gun violence. Not people violence.
Not for nothing, but I’m getting sick of the term “gun violence”. When people get killed in M/V accidents do we call it “Car Violence” or if someone’s clubbed to death, “Bat Violence”? It’s violence, period.
SAVAGES SPAWNED FROM A VIOLENCE PRONE AND TOLERANT POPULATION OF LARGELY NO DISCIPLINE, FATHERLESS FAMILIES use guns to kill 5 and wound 16 since Friday night.
In third world hellholes, they use machetes and the victims are just as dead only more painfully so.
There, that's much more accurate.
This headline is instructive: it mentions 'gun-violence' and buried deep in the story is a sentence that identifies at least one of the shootings as gang-related.
The unapologetic bias in the news business is a genuine tragedy. In my college years, the kids who majored in the news-editorial sequence used to look down their noses at us who were more interested in the commercial side, thinking their motives of 'reporting the truth' were pure as the driven snow.
“Gun violence kills 5, wounds 16 since Friday night”
Yep, its all those crazy guns out running around by themselves causing mayhem.
This is exactly the reason that guns should outlawed in the city of Chicago. This would not happen if guns were illegal.... ....Wait.
yet there is no protest and threats of riots
lots of shot in the back....nice..kind of cowardly don´t ya think..but thats the hood...
Yeah, “gun violence” is terrible... them there guns are just climbing out of safes all over the country, looking for innocent victims...all on their own, clearly.
I’ve hired and worked with a lot of journalist majors over the years, and I agree that it is really hard to find anyone more sanctimonious and more self-righteous than a journalist major.
It’s kind of nice to see that for every time I post a job listing that requires contains considerable writing, I’ll usually get over a thousand applicants from journalist majors that have essentially been flipping burgers since graduating.
Strange how many of those guns are targeting Chicago.............
To a Propagandist Press?
WHERE ARE THE JUSTICE BROTHERS? WHERE’S HOLDER?? DID ANY OF THESE KIDS LOOK LIKE OBAMA’S???
I MEAN, COME ON!
They must not have been using assault weapons, contrary to what the media tells us. I hear that if you hit somebody in the pinkie finger with an assault weapon it will tear their body in half. /sarc
Will Beyonce have another moment of silence?
DO something! If it saves just ONE life...
“Yep, its all those crazy guns out running around by themselves causing mayhem.”
Absolutely, I used to own a couple of guns but they got liquored up one day and went tearin’ down the road shootin’ everthang in sight, lucky they didn’t hit no people, they wound up in the river and drowned so I just left ‘em there, don’t want no more guns, no sir, can’t trust ‘em. If anybody wants to rob me or kill me or sumpin I’ll just tell ‘em they got to make an appointment a day ahead so I can try to get a deputy here to deal with ‘em. Anybody that really wants to commit a crime shouldn’t object to makin’ an appointment, should they?
Allegedly, depending on the victims, autopsies can take some time for homicides, which delays investigations. Cases are prioritized based on case circumstances. Gang on gang Vs. Gang on child Vs. Child victim Vs. Upper Class homicide.... they triage the cases when the bodies come in.
...according to a retired detective from the area.
If we saw these kinds of numbers from Bagdad or from Afganistan, we’d assume our security efforts had failed.
More gun control damit, and where are those two rabble rousing race baiter’s JJ and Al? Oh wait these were black on black crimes./S
Zimmerman must be hiding in Chicago.
There were 1893 shootings in Chicago last year. In 94% of the cases the perp got away scot-free. There is no deterrent from the police or from within the “community”. It is a totally foreign culture that is hostile to our values and beliefs. It is dangerous.
Yawn, who cares...until you can prove a whixican did it..you ain’t got a story
Just helping with the math: five out of twenty one would be 23%-——That Chicago bunch is clearly deficient in triggernometry——they oughta stay in school.

“Damn arent these people even trying?”
Perhaps a little buck fever but more likely jerking that thang and not practicing B-R-A-S-S.
I’m gonna take a sweet wild azzed guess: no White-Brown monster shot any light brown child. Well. Am I right?
I’m George Zimmerman.
why is this gun violence like they said.
My gun is not out shooting others but I do think and correct if I am wrong but this is thug violence, lack of parenting, and respect violence
just said the exact thing, , this is not gun violence this is thug violence, Chicago violence and I’ll be honest.
I could nto careless and hope they stay the hell up there and never move south to bring their ways with them
“Are these victims worth less than Trayvon Martin?”
To the race baiters, they have no value.
To the lamestream media, absolutely.
To Obama, they are just stains on the sidewalk.
To normal caring people, absolutely not.
build a wall around that city and other dump cities like it
To the Liberals whose only desire is to push an agenda of government control of the people - yes.
Re “yet there is no protest and threats of riots”.
The reason why, re Sharpton and Jackson, there IS NO MONEY TO BE MADE BY EXTORTION OR STREET DONATIONS.
The biggest crime in Chicago is that Sharpton and Jackson are allowed to walk the streets there without being arrested for aiding and abetting violence, extortion, lying, and for being black racists (against other blacks, the innocent victims of black crime/criminals).
While on this rant/vein, Jackson was an adulterer. Yeah, Rev. really revved up his morality. Talk about hypocrisy to the nth.
He also started out his well-planned national rise to “prominence” with a lie, namely that he cradled the head of the dying Dr. King Jr. in his hands.
He lied the other day at the Zimmerman trial when he said that Zimmerman murdered Martin in cold blood. I hope he gets his lying ass sued off.
Sharpton. He started off his national rise to media prominence with a lie - TAWANA BRAWLEY HOAX, libel, inciting to riot, and then went on to extortion, aiding & abetting the killin of Yankel Rosenblatt, the burning out of a Korean grocer from his business, and then lying the other day about the Martin-Zimmerman tragedy.
Another lefty, self-promoting fraud is Ralph Nader, who started off his media rise with the provenly false claims about the road stability of the Corvair car (which I have driven).
Notice that it was the liberal/left media who gave these clowns the publicity to promote themselves, their organizations, and their causes (be they righteous ones or not).
Now, if you or I tried this crap, we’d be in jail on various criminal charges and then nobody would give us free and extensive media coverage.
Talk about a corrupt media with a total lack of journalistic standards for the leftist/liberals, and a nearly total lack of enforcement of whatever standards do exist.
The rise of Sharpton, Jackson and Nader was a collective media effort to promote charlatans, and it succeeded. This is the shame of America and part of the undermining/undoing of American society.
re “To Obama, they are just stains on the sidewalk”.
To which I add (the Obama/Clinton line):
“To the Obama Administration, they are just bumps in the graveyard”!
