BREAKING: 47 Shot, 7 Killed Including Teen Boy In Chicago So Far This Weekend

And the senseless violence continues in this Democrat-run city. It appears some residents are getting sick of the endless killings & are speaking out & patrolling the streets on their own, though. Perhaps they will get so fed-up they will start voting out their failed leaders.

ABC 7 is reporting:

“CHICAGO (WLS) — As Chicago continues to move forward with reopening amid the COVID-19 pandemic, violence continues to plague the communities as temperatures rise.

So far this weekend, 47 people have been shot, seven fatally in violence across the city.

The latest non-fatal shooting victim was a teenage boy who was injured by gunfire Sunday morning in Marquette Park on the Southwest Side, Chicago police said.

According to police, a 14-year-old boy was standing in an alley around 2:55 a.m. in the 6500-block of South Francisco Avenue when someone fired shots.

He was hit in the abdomen and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in fair condition, police said.

About an hour earlier, a 25-year-old man was shot near the area of State and Monroe streets around 8:40 p.m, Chicago police said. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Police said he was involved in a verbal altercation before being shot. He was hit in the leg and transported in good condition.

One person has been arrested in connection with the incident. A weapon was recovered and charges are pending, police said.

Additional fatal shootings over the weekend include a 15-year-old boy from the South Side.

The shooting occurred in the 9800-block of South Hoxie Avenue at around 4:48 p.m. in the Jeffery Manor neighborhood.

The teen, identified as Terrance Malden by family, was in the street when a light-colored vehicle pulled up and someone inside fired shots, Chicago police said.

Malden was shot in the back. He was transported to University of Chicago Hospital in critical condition, and later pronounced dead, Chicago police said.

He was the second child lost to one mother in just months.

The brothers’ killers are still on the loose.

“I’m sick of it. I’m tired of it. We talk about Black Lives Matter, but I’m sick and tired of what’s going on in these streets,” said Erikka Gordon, the victims’ aunt.”

A Chicago neighborhood group is patrolling its own streets Friday night in an attempt to prevent violence.

They call themselves “The Original Men in Black.”

Before dusk turned to dark, the small group of dedicated community activists walked through South Shore, making their message known. Their march Friday night followed a gathering of South Shore community groups determined to set the tone of peaceful perseverance.

“We’ve lost so many of our children, so many of our babies,” said Pastor Victoria Brady. “We’re here this evening to say what we as a people will do for ourselves.”

“We will reclaim the love in our own community,” Brady said.

On the heels of three horrifically violent weekends, their homegrown movement is the kind Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said police need. For their part, more officers in the department’s summer mobile patrol will head to violent hot spots.”
