At least 6 dead and 26 injured after violent weekend of shootings in Chicago

At least six people died and as many as 26 others were injured in gun violence that sprawled across Chicago over the last 48 hours.

The identified victims were ages 13 to 64.

Early Friday, a 41-year-old man was found in a vehicle in an alley in the Lower West Side. He had been fatally shot during an armed robbery.

Later in the day, a 16-year-old boy was discovered on the sidewalk around the 1200 block of W. 81st Street with gunshot wounds to the chest. After being taken to a local hospital, he was pronounced dead.

A 13-year-old boy was riding his bicycle Saturday when a car drove by and an occupant shot him, grazing him in a knee. He was taken to a local hospital in good condition.


A group of people were standing on the sidewalk early Sunday when an unknown assailant fired shots from the west alley of the street, striking two women and a man.

Officers discovered a 29-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the head in a flipped-over vehicle near the 3000 block of W. 21st Street on Sunday morning. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition and pronounced dead later.

CORRECTION (July 24, 2023, 1 a.m. ET): A previous version of this article misstated when six people were killed and 47 others were injured in a mass shooting in a Chicago suburb. It was over the Fourth of July weekend last year, not this month
