11 killed, dozens wounded in Chicago weekend shootings

In three hours beginning at 1.30 a.m. on Sunday, police records show that 30 people were shot and two killed in 10 incidents, reports CNN. Eddie Johnson on Monday asked people to stop pointing frustrated fingers at the police and start pointing them at the gunmen who are pulling triggers. This isn't a widespread issue among citizens of the city.

Waller touted that shootings in 2018 were down from past year. "Mayor Emanuel is out of touch with reality". Mt. Sinai's emergency room shut down for several hours due to the overload of bodies; in May, the entire hospital went into lockdown following a virtual riot in its lobby among gangbangers, reported Tribune columnist John Kass.

The violence, which police say is primarily fueled by gangs, disproportionately impacts several swaths of low-income black and Latino neighborhoods on the city's West and South Sides. Johnson said while CPD can do better, the shooters need to be held accountable.

"I promise this city, we won't be defeated", he vowed during the press conference. "And it might get worse because you can hear people talking about revenge, saying on their cell phones 'I know know who did it". I never hear that. "They get a pass from everybody, and they shouldn't", he said. A person in a ski-mask fired shots at two people standing in front of a home. A 50-year-old man died a 55-year-old woman was hurt. In that incident, three people were standing in front of a residence when a shooter exited a vehicle and opened fire, according to officials.

Resources at local hospitals were taxed as shooting victims poured in. A 17-year-old girl is shot in the face and is pronounced dead at the scene.

Courtois could leave Chelsea if he is not motivated, says Sarri
Jorginho was on the verge of joining Manchester City mere days before it was announced that he had signed with Chelsea for £53m. Jose Mourinho has said the foundations are there for new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri to succeed at Stamford Bridge.

Police blamed the spike in shootings largely on gang conflicts, while experts pointed to the hot summer which has descended on the Windy City and its effect on crime rates.

"We'll also be conducting coordinated enforcement missions to target individuals that are driving the violence in these areas and focus on where we believe retaliatory violence may occur".

"Far too often, we continue to see the devastating effects that illegal guns have in some of our communities".

After former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani pushed false Chicago crime numbers as real, Fox News presented his misleading statistics as fact and did not correct them on-air. The Washington Post can't resist pointing out that Giuliani misspelled McCarthy's first name as "Jerry" and the current mayor's last name as "Emmanuel", and that McCarthy is a Democrat himself.

The mayor had no immediate comment on Giuliani's attacks.
