While most of the city spent the weekend celebrating our Declaration of Independence and the birth of our nation, gang violence raged in Chicago, killing three and wounding 37.
Even as the bang of fireworks heralded the evening of the fourth of July in the Windy City, Friday’s gang violence rang out with a vengeance with 22 people wounded on the national holiday.
The first death occurred at 10PM on Friday evening as a young man in his late teens or early 20s drew a pistol to confront police after a foot chase through the Portage Park neighborhood. Police fired their service weapons, killing the man.
