Chiraq: 3 killed, including boxer, and at least 28 wounded over weekend

Chicago's West Side
When winter arrives in Chicago it usually means that gun violence goes down. And so it was this weekend when the first snowstorm of the season arrived. Four people were shot to death and at least 28 others were wounded. Three of the fatalities happened on the South Side, in Englewood, Chatham, and Parkway Gardens.

On the West Side, undefeated boxer Ed "Bad Boy" Brown was murdered in East Garfield Park, a mile from his home. Brown's mother was killed in the E2 stampede tragedy in 2003.
