Chiraq: 6 dead and at least 32 wounded over weekend
Author at Wrigley Field
Well, there is some rare good news on violence in Chicago. There were six people shot to death over the weekend and at least 32 others were wounded. One of murder of course is too many but the carnage was a bit less than usual. Perhaps the Chicago Cubs winning their first National League pennant since 1945 has something to do with that.
Three of the fatal shootings occurred on the West Side, two of those in North Lawndale, one of Chiraq's most violent neighborhoods.
