11 dead, almost 70 wounded in weekend violence in Chicago

In this Aug. 5, 2018, photo, cops investigate the scene where numerous individuals were shot in Chicago.

Monday, Aug. 6, 2018|3:11 p.m.

CHICAGO– At least 11 individuals were shot to death and about 70 injured in a weekend burst of violence in Chicago that instantly became a political concern when President Donald Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, blamed the carnage on longtime Democratic rule in the city.

Authorities on Monday associated the lots of shootings to gangs, the prohibited circulation of weapons and sweltering August heat that drew more individuals outside.

The victims ranged in age from 11 to 63, inning accordance with cops. One teenage lady died after being shot in the face. A teenage young boy was fatally shot riding a bike Sunday afternoon. Other shootings happened at a block celebration and a funeral service.

Even for Chicagoans all too familiar with violence in parts of the city, the weekend stuck out. By method of contrast, at least seven individuals were killed and 32 injured during the long Memorial Day weekend, the Chicago Tribune reported.

“Our souls are strained,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel stated. “It is undesirable to happen in any neighborhood of Chicago. We are a better city.”

Echoing comments that Trump himself has made repeatedly about Chicago, Giuliani blamed Emanuel– President Barack Obama’s White Home chief of personnel– and years of “one party Democratic guideline” in a series of tweets on Sunday and Monday.

The previous New York mayor likewise tweeted his support for Chicago mayoral prospect and previous Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, describing him as “Jerry” and calling him a “policing genius.”

McCarthy plans to run next February versus Emanuel, who fired McCarthy in 2015 after the release of dashcam video showing a white law enforcement officer eliminate a black teenager by shooting him 16 times.

Misspelling Emanuel’s last name, Giuliani tweeted: “He can do a lot much better than Mayor Emmanuel who is messing while Chicago burns.” Giuliani likewise wrongly claimed that Chicago had “63 murders this weekend.”

The mayor had no immediate talk about Giuliani’s attacks.

The majority of the shootings happened in poor areas on the West and South Sides where gangs are entrenched, said Cops Superintendent Eddie Johnson, standing beside the mayor.

Johnson noted that murders in the city are down by around 20 percent from in 2015. But he stated gang members and others jailed on gun charges aren’t dealt with harshly enough.

“It is the very same individuals who are shooting,” he said. “This is a small subset of people who believe they can play by their own rules since they continue to get a slap on the wrist when we apprehend them.”

Johnson said at the morning press conference there had been no arrests in any of the weekend shootings.

Days prior to the attacks, some 200 protesters marched through a well-to-do North Side community and briefly closed Lake Coast Drive, requiring more resources to stem violence in poor locations.

Tio Hardiman, among the organizers of last week’s rally, said members of the black neighborhood have to take the effort by moderating truces in between gangs.

The violence peaked early Sunday, consisting of one shooting on the South Side that injured 8 individuals.

Security was increased over the weekend at the outdoor Lollapalooza music festival in downtown Chicago, which drew tens of countless youths. However Johnson said the officers were on overtime and weren’t moved from their regular beats in high-crime locations.

City officials say brand-new crime-fighting procedures over recent years have helped bring homicide numbers down, including greater reliance on innovation that can instantly show where gunfire originated from. Improved intelligence-gathering has likewise enabled cops to rapidly dispatch officers to hotspots where gang violence has actually just struck assist thwart revenge attacks.

Chicago ended 2017 with 650 murders, below 771 the year before. Though the drop was significant, in 2015’s overall went beyond the combined number of killings in New York and Los Angeles, the two U.S. cities larger than Chicago.

In a declaration, McCarthy called himself a “proud Democrat” and distanced himself from Giuliani’s views and “the misdirected, divisive tone and policies of Donald Trump.”

McCarthy stated the blame for the bloodshed “lies squarely with Rahm Emanuel’s weak management and stopped working policies,” not with Chicago Democrats as a whole.
