40 Shot, 4 Killed Including 11-Year-Old Shamiya Adams, in Chicago Weekend Violence

About 40 people were shot, four killed in Chicago weekend violence. At least 18 people were shot in a little more than 12 hours overnight, bringing the total to 40 since Friday afternoon, NBC News reports.

Among the victims was 11-year-old Shamiya Adams, who was gunned down inside a Chicago home during a sleepover, after a stray bullet struck her, police said.

A 24-year-old man was shot in a bar on Chicago’s Southwest Side early Sunday morning. He was pronounced dead at the scene from a gunshot wound to the chest.

A 21-year-old man was shot multiple times as he and a woman got into a cab in the 900 block of North Mayfield Avenue. He was later pronounced dead at the West Suburban Medical Center. A 30-year-0ld man was found dead in a car in the South Austin neighborhood. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the back, shoulder and neck.

The weekend hasn’t come to a close yet. I suspect there will be more violence in the Windy City.
