5 dead, including a teen, and at least 27 wounded over weekend in Chicago

Lori Lightfoot's "Summer of Joy" is almost upon us. 

But of course Chicagoans are still shooting each other. Five were shot to death over the weekend, most notably, a 16-year-old  who was killed at Millenium Park as a group of "yoots" gathered there Saturday night. On Sunday, Lightfoot, in a joyful mood no doubt, announced  a nighttime curfew there for unaccompanied minors. 

A 17-year-old is being held for allegedly killing the 16-year-old. 

Elsewhere in Chicago at least 27 others were wounded.
