Chiraq: 15 shot on Put the Guns Down Day

Friday was Put the Guns Down Day in Chicago and the city responded in predictable fashion--people were shot. Fifteen of them, but amazingly there were no fatalities. But things got worse after midnight--three people died of gunshot wounds, including a 15-year-old girl who was riding in a car on Lake Shore Drive at Fullerton. That's in Lincoln Park, which is considered one of the safest neighborhoods in Chiraq. It's also a popular tourist destination.

The mother of the teen victim told the media that she planned to move out of Chicago in a year.

Chicago is the only city among America's biggest municipalities to lose population last year.
