Chiraq: 7 killed in deadliest day of year

Altgeld Gardens last summer
The unseasonably warm weather finally brought a sadly predictable result--a very deadly day. On Wednesday seven people were shot to death and an additional six were wounded. One of the fatalities took place at the Altgeld Gardens housing project on the Far South Side--just one block from the site of a Monday deadly shooting there.

There was also a double murder in Chatham on the South Side, one of the victims was a pregnant woman. Three other murders occurred on the South Side, one each in Brainerd, Bronzeville, Morgan Park,

In Little Village on the Southwest Side a 60-year-old was killed after being shot three times.

Amazingly, there were no fatalities on the West Side, but two men were wounded in Austin.
