Deadliest Chicago weekend of 2020: 19 murdered and at least 63 wounded

While the riots and looting in downtown Chicago and the south and west sides understandably dominated the local news, there was other violence in the city. Over the past weekend 19 people were shot to death and at least 63 others were wounded. Some of these shootings occurred during Sunday night's curfew.

And of course Chicago police officers, despite the riots, looting, and shootings, are still dutifully guarding the city's 18 miles of lakefront parks from the menace of runners, cyclists, and walkers.
