The Democrat controlled city of Chicago has yet another violent weekend.
According to Breitbart News, “at least 45 people were shot, five of them fatally, Friday into Sunday morning.”
Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a Democrat and gun control proponent, has blamed the crime in her city on everything from COVID to climate change to Donald Trump.
Per the report:
The first shooting fatality occurred at 5:15 p.m. Friday, when an 18-year-old male was shot and killed while “standing on a street in the 5100 block of West Fullerton,” NBC 5 reported.
The next firearm-related fatality was the result of a shooting just after 8:30 p.m. Friday “on the Eisenhower Expressway near Damen Avenue.”
The third shooting fatality occurred Saturday around 12:40 p.m., and resulted in a 59-year-old man being shot dead while driving.
The fourth fatal shooting happened at 8:15 p.m. Saturday, when a 25-year-old man was shot while standing “on a sidewalk in the 800 block of East 54th Street.”
The fifth fatal shooting occurred shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday, when a 33-year-old man was shot in the chest while standing in a group “in the 7500 block of South Saint Lawrence.”
