Four people were shot in the 1600 block of South Avers in Lawndale. Eight in the 1300 block of West 76th Street in Gresham. Six in the 1300 block of South Millard, in Lawndale again. Four more in the 900 block of Karlov Avenue in West Humboldt Park. Three others in 4700 block of West Gladys Avenue in West Garfield Park.

At least 37 people were shot in Chicago from 11 a.m. Saturday through Sunday morning, three fatally. A total of 31 were shot since midnight with 25 of them shot in five multiple-injury shootings over about 2 1/2 hours. Walk-ins at West Side hospitals complicated efforts to determine who was shot where.

Sixteen of those shot were teenagers. Twelve were 17 or younger.

Chicago police planned to hold a news conference at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at police headquarters to discuss the weekend’s violence.

At 16th Street and Avers, where evidence of the annual block party was scattered on the ground, lime green T-shirts dotted the groups of people still gathered on sidewalks and in streets after a shooting there around midnight. Crime scene tape crossed 16th Street east of Springfield and stretched far down the block past Penn Elementary School on the south side of 16th.

One man stood by himself, leaning his back against a chain link fence on the north side of 16th Street, watching police work the large crime scene to his east. He estimated more than 1,000 people had been there. He talked freely, but did not want to be named. He’s lived in the neighborhood his whole life.

“I know the rules,” he said.

He’d been on his way out when he heard the gunshots, he said. He commented on the brazenness of shootings he’s grown accustomed to.

“If they shoot you they don’t even run,” he said. “They just walk away, they ain’t trying to run.”

Calls of shots fired continued to blare on the scanners for the zone, even with all the police in the area of some of the calls. While officers were still on the scene at Avers, two gunmen shot at a group a little more than half a mile away, in the 1300 block of South Millard Avenue.

Blood thickened on the sidewalk in front of the main door to a large brick apartment building on the north side of Douglas Boulevard in between Millard and Lawndale Avenue and dotted the sidewalk farther north on Millard. Dozens of people remained outside, some sitting on the steps in front of Stone Temple Baptist Church on the northwest corner of Millard and Douglas.

One young man in a backward Bulls cap sat down on the curb away from everyone else, put his head in his hands, and cried.

Others congregated at Mount Sinai Hospital, leaning against cars and embracing on the sidewalk. Yellow crime scene tape encircled two cars outside the emergency room, a white sedan and a black one that had its front crumpled and windshield cracked.

Mount Sinai’s emergency department for a few hours was on bypass and accepting no new emergencies “just because of the sheer amount of shootings,” said spokesman Dan Regan.

"We went off of bypass around 8:30 this morning, so we are back to normal operations in terms of accepting patients,” Regan said.

"Our folks are unfortunately well-versed in dealing with these kinds of situations,” he said.

On Sunday morning, dozens of people gathered outside Stroger Hospital, clustered in small groups in the parking lot.

Only immediate family members of victims were allowed inside, according to police.

Families walked up to the entrance, guarded by police. And if they couldn’t enter, they found a spot in the lot to watch and wait.

Among the shootings since 11 a.m. Saturday through the same time about 6 a.m. Sunday, police have released the following information:

Sunday

Most recently just before 5:50 a.m. in West Pullman, a 33-year-old man was shot once in each of his legs in the 12100 block of South Bishop Street by someone last seen northbound on Bishop in a small silver Ford car, police said. He was taken to Christ in fair condition.

If it weren't for 'White Privilege' and a lack of lots of free money, all of the spontaneous goodness of this community would be able to manifest itself and this situation would clear right up.
On the other hand, they probably wish some white pivilege were involved, so they had some deep pockets to sue instead of just a bunch of other gang banger spawn.

Man Fatally Shot By Neighbor After Alleged Dog Pee Argument, Witnesses Say.

One of the victims of gun violence this past weekend died, allegedly, over something as small as a dog relieving itself on someone else’s property.

Police say the fatal shooting happened in the 7700 block of South Shore on August 3 around 8:45 p.m. The victim was struck in the left arm and chest and pronounced dead on the scene.

Young was murdered Friday. He was one of 12 killed over the violent weekend in Chicago.

Payne says it all stemmed from Young’s two puppies on the porch of his Southshore home.

“The puppies were peeing on the porch. The pee ran down the porch to the neighbor’s,” he explained.

Police say Young and the neighbor exchanged words before the neighbor shot and killed him.

“How are we so petty now that we live in a world that you could lose your life over puppy pee?” questioned Payne.

20 shot in Chicago: 'Even I’m scared to walk to the corner store'

The two cousins had planned to settle in for a night of playing video games, but first, the boys, 15 and 17, wanted to walk to the nearby gas station for something to eat.

“Chicago is a scary place to be,” Hines said. “Even I’m scared to walk to the corner store.”

The boys were among 20 people shot Friday and early Saturday, one of them fatally. Three other juveniles were wounded in attacks in the city, including a 12-year-old girl.

At least 74 people were shot last weekend between 3 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Monday, 12 of them fatally.
