Over the holiday weekend, close to 40 people were shot in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s city.
One of the victims who was shot and killed was Artilia Cunningham. The incident occurred around 1:45 am when someone shot her through her window as she was sitting in her home located in the 7600 block of South May Street.
The second fatal shooting occurred on Saturday when a man was discovered around 7:30 pm dead from a bullet wound to the head. He was found under a viaduct in the 8100 block of South Anthony Avenue.
Multiple other shootings occurred throughout the city over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Fortunately, a majority of them were not fatal.
On Thanksgiving, ten people were struck by gunfire, including a 15-year-old boy. The boy was sitting in a car in the 4800 block of South Ada Street when a vehicle pulled up and opened fire. The boy was hit in the shoulder and transferred to a nearby hospital in stable condition.
On Friday, one person was killed, and five others were injured as a result of gunfire. On Saturday, a 16-year-old boy was shot while buying drugs. He walked into the home to purchase drugs, and two men opened fire on the boy. He was hit in the leg and went to the hospital for treatment in stable condition.
As of Sunday morning, there was a total of 38 people shot in Chicago. Meanwhile, Mayor Lightfoot is more focused on shopping at Black-owned businesses than working to combat the violence that is destroying Chicago.
