Chirq: 9 dead and at least 52 wounded over weekend

Gang shrine in West Pullman
The national news media, with good reason, has been focusing on the riots ninety miles north of Chicago in Milwaukee.

But there is the usual news to report in Chiraq. Over the past weekend nine people were shot to death, including the 20-year-old son of a Chicago police officer. The other fatal shootings occurred in the usual areas, the South and West Sides.

At least 52 other people were wounded in Chicago, including a six-year-old girl in West Pullman on the Far South Side.
