Chiraq: 12 dead and at least 43 wounded over Father's Day weekend

Abandoned home in the
Back of the Yards
It was another rough weekend in Chicago. Twelve people were killed and at least 43 others were wounded. One of the dead was shot while sitting in a vehicle at the corner of Balbo on Lake Shore Drive--shootings once were rare on this gorgeous stretch of road. How did the other people in the car respond? They drove him a couple of miles south and dumped him on the side of a street. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Another fatality was killed outside of a church in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the South Side while mass was being held.

It was not a happy Father's Day weekend in Chiraq.
