At least 17 people shot over the weekend in Chicago

At least 17 people were shot over the weekend in Chicago as violent crime continues to plague the city led by Democratic Mayor Brandon Johnson.

One of the individuals has also reportedly died following being shot on Friday.

Another life lost

"The one shooting fatality occurred Friday around 11:40 p.m., when a man approached a 45-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman and opened fire," Breitbart News reported.

"The man and woman were standing in 'in the 3300 block of West 16th Street' when the gunman approached and the 45-year-old was shot multiple times. He was rushed to a hospital and pronounced dead upon arrival," it added.

The numbers keep growing

"Four people were killed and at least 35 others, including a 7-year-old boy, were wounded in shootings across the city over the weekend, Chicago police said," including statistics from Sunday.

The previous weekend "at least 30 people were shot, three fatally, across the city, police said," in the report.

Young people suffering

"And after another incident Sunday afternoon, a 13-year-old boy is in critical condition," CBS News reported.

"The shooting happened around 3 p.m. in Little Italy near 13th and Racine. Chicago Police say the victim was standing outside when someone fired several shots. Detectives marked at least two dozen shell casing, but no one was in custody Sunday evening," it continued.

So far, a total of 444 people have been reportedly killed in Chicago this year.

The number is "compiled from Chicago Sun-Times reporting and information from law enforcement agencies and the Cook County medical examiner’s office and updated every day," according ot the Chicago Sun-Times.

The tragic shootings and lost lives continue to plague the city that has become known as a growing area of violence under previous Mayor Lori Lightfoot and now under Johnson. The current mayor ran with plans to increase public safety in the city but has so far been unsuccessful in curbing the tragic number of lost lives in Chicago under his leadership.
