Dozens were shot in Chicago over Father’s Day weekend, marking another bloody run for the Windy City. According to the Chicago Tribune, the city surpassed 300 homicides over a 60-hour period of gun violence that began on Friday (June 17) and into Monday.
A total of 13 people were killed and at least 56 sustained bullet injuries, including 3-year-old Devin Quinn who was shot while riding in a car with his dad on Father’s Day.
The two were headed to pick-up the boy’s mother when bullets sprayed the vehicle. Quinn’s father rushed him to a hospital where he received emergency surgery, and is expected to survive.
Among the dead is a 21-year-old man supposedly killed by an AK-47 assault rifle, and a 73-year-old victim of a reported murder-suicide.
Roughly 25 people were wounded, and three people killed, between Saturday evening and early Sunday morning.
