Nine people were shot to death over the long weekend and at least 61 others were wounded. Over the same period last year eight people were killed but just 20 wounded.
Earlier this month another grim Chiraq milestone was passed--the city's 4,000th shooting. Over 700 people have been murdered in 2016 in Chicago, just 447 were last year.
