Five killed, including 7-year-old girl, and 22 wounded in Chicago over weekend

Despite the protest outside Mayor Lori Lightfoot's home on Friday night over the police shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo, who may have been a member of the Latin Kings street gang, violence continued over the weekend. Gang violence most horribly. 

Over the weekend five people were shot to death in Chicago over the weekend, including a 7-year-old girl who was shot Sunday along with her father at a West Side McDonald's drive thru. The father was wounded and Chicago Police believe the shooting was gang-related. In what may have been a retaliatory incident, two men were shot outside a Popeye's nearby.

Over all at least 22 people were wounded over the weekend in Chicago.

Lightfoot, a woke Democrat, blamed "gun violence," not "gang violence" on Twitter for the fatal shooting of the 7-year-old.

Most shootings in Chicago are gang-related. This is an indisputable fact.
