Chiraq: 10 dead and at least 57 wounded over weekend

Chicago's South Side
Last weekend was another typical violent spell in Chicago, with the exception that one of the ten people shot to death was the cousin of Chicago Bulls star Dwayne Wade. Nykea Aldridge, a mother of four, was murdered Friday afternoon while pushing a baby stroller. Meanwhile 57 others were wounded in Chiraq.

Most of the shootings occurred in the south and west sides, although two of the fatal attacks, one in the South Loop and one in Uptown, occurred in places where such violence is less common.

Two gangbanger brothers who are out on parole have been charged in the Aldridge slaying.

So the killers of a Chicago sports star's cousin are found right away. Killers of victims not related to Chicago sports stars no so much.
