Chiraq: 9 dead and at least 19 wounded over weekend
Abandoned home, Englewood
The first blast of cold weather in months may have led to there being fewer shootings over the weekend, but fatalities were at their usual level. Nine people were murdered over the weekend, including the grandson of US Rep. Danny K. Davis, and at least 19 others were wounded.
Javon Wilson, 14, Davis' grandson, was shot to death inside his Englewood home during an argument over gym shoes.
Of the other homicides three occurred in normally quiet areas, East Side, Wicker Park, and West Rogers Park.
