Chicago suffers deadly wave of gun violence

Posted August 07, 2018

Waller touted that shootings in 2018 were down from previous year.

The gun violence has been the subject of two high-profile protests this summer, as demonstrators temporarily blocked major expressways to demand more economic investment and job opportunities in poor communities.

In the most recent shooting, three people were shot at 29 North Leclaire Ave.

Chicago police are working with federal authorities to help prevent more violent crimes in the city. The worst of it took place in a three-hour span starting around midnight Saturday when 30 people were shot, reports the Sun-Times. Bureau of Patrol Chief Fred Waller said that most of the shootings were gang-related.

Giuliani cited the murders as an endorsement for former policeman Garry McCarthy for mayor, who Giuliani says can lower the city's homicide rate.

Police in the U.S. city of Chicago have asked for more help to combat gun violence after more than 60 people were shot over the weekend.

President Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudi Giuliani, who falsely claimed 63 people were murdered in the city over the weekend, laid the blame for the violence on Chicago's longtime "Democratic rule" in a series of tweets on Sunday and Monday. "We are a better city".

Authorities emphasized that the weekend shootings stood in contrast to a general decline in gun violence, where city figures show shootings down 30 percent and murders down 25 percent, compared to the same time previous year.
