Chiraq: 9 dead and at least 50 wounded over Fathers Day weekend

Chicago's Gold Coast
Father's Day weekend saw much bloodshed in Chicago. Nine people were murdered and at least 50 others were wounded, which is worse than the same weekend last year.

In Austin on the West Side a son discovered his parents stabbed to death. Also on the West Side, in North Lawndale a 16-year-old and a 25-year-old man were fatally shot in separate incidents. On the Northwest Side, a 33-year-old was shot to death in Humboldt Park. On the Near North Side, which is usually quiet, a 25-year-old was fatally gunned down in the Gold Coast neighborhood.

On the South Side, there was a murder each in Englewood, Chatham, and Back of the Yards.
