It was another bloody weekend in Chicago under Mayor Brandon Johnson, Chicago’s new “leader” who is proving to be just as bad, if not worse, as much-maligned former mayor Lori Lightfoot. In fact, over this past weekend, at least 23 individuals were shot in Brandon Johnson’s Chicago.
Three of those 23 individuals who were shot died, with the first fatality occurring early on the morning of Sunday the 13th of August. The second fatality was recorded later on Sunday morning when a man was found dead, shot to death, and the third deadly shooting occurred on Sunday evening.
ABC 7 / Chicago Sun-Times reported the first of the three fatal shootings, noting that it occurred at 2:40 a.m. “in the 1500 block of West 18th Street.” There, a 36-year-old man was shot in the chest and, though he was able to transport himself to a local hospital, St. Anthony Hospital, he died in the medical facility and was pronounced dead.
Fewer details are known second shooting, which occurred early on the same morning, other than that a man was found shot to death “in the 700 block of South Leamington Avenue.” The only other details provided by the Chicago Sun-Times are that the unknown, 32-year-old male died after being shot at about 1:56 in the morning.
The third fatal shooting occurred later in the day, around 8:15 p.m. in the area of “5700 block of South Payne Drive.” More details are known about it. Apparently, the deadly shooting followed an argument. After the acrimonious debate, one individual involved apparently drew a firearm and opened fire upon a 16-year-old, two 18-year-olds, and a 53-year-old man. The fatality was one of the 18-year-olds; he was shot by the individual who opened fire on the crowd and later died of his gunshot wounds.
