Of those deadly shootings over the past weekend, amazingly none of them occurred on the West Side. One of those killings happened n Humboldt Park on the Northwest Side, the other six took place on the South Side, with one each in Englewood, West Englewood, Parkway Gardens, Washington Park, South Shore, and Roseland.
