(ThePatriotSource.com)- At least 20 people were shot over the last weekend in Democrat-run Chicago – and now, there’s no way for Mayor Lori Lightfoot to blame President Donald Trump for it.
Breitbart News reported how some 18 people were shot, and one person died, between Friday and Sunday morning. But on Sunday, another fatal shooting victim was revealed, bringing the total shooting deaths over the weekend to two.
One shooting involved a crash on the Kennedy Expressway on the Northwest Side on Saturday night. The crash occurred when the driver was shot at from another vehicle.
It’s like Chicago has become the Wild West.
The victim crashed his vehicle after he hit an embankment. Autopsy results showed that the victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene, died of multiple gunshot wounds according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Investigations by the Illinois State Police are ongoing.
Further reports from NBC 5 reveal how a driver was shot on the Chicago expressway the next day at lunchtime. Thankfully, the victim’s wounds were not life-threatening.
In another shooting on Saturday afternoon in the Gresham neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, three men were wounded after being engaged in an argument with two other men at 2:30 in the afternoon. Chicago police said that a fight broke out and one of the men pulled out a gun and began shooting.
One 36-year-old male was shot in the foot and treated at Little Company of Mary Hospital. A second man was shot in the leg and treated at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
A third man was also shot in the hand and treated at Holy Cross Hospital. Police officers said that two men are currently being investigated.
Even a 17-year-old boy was hurt over the weekend in the Little Village on Chicago’s West Side. While sitting in a parked vehicle at around 3 am, the young man said he heard gunshots and then felt pain. He was shot in the leg and taken to Saint Anthony Hospital in a stable condition.
Last year, Mayor Lori Lightfoot attempted to blame her state’s shockingly high gun violence rates on lax gun ownership laws in surrounding states. The massive increase in violent crime in Chicago, along with other Democrat-run cities like New York City, contributed to the most rapid rise in violent crime in American history.
