 July 10, 2023

Far-left Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson's city saw 18 shootings over the weekend.

Three of the incidents resulted in fatalities.

Johnson's gun-controlled Chicago remains one of the most dangerous cities in the nation.

ABC 7 / Chicago Sun-Times reported that a 22-year-old woman was shot and killed Saturday at 4 a.m.

The woman was standing "in the 9600-block of South Perry" when someone began shooting. A bullet hit the woman in the head.

The 22-year-old woman died at the scene.

"A 28-year-old man was fatally shot in the abdomen Saturday night around 8:50 p.m. The man was 'in the 100-block of West Cermak Road' when he was shot," reported Breitbart. "He was transported to a hospital, where he died."

Only an hour later, around 9:45 p.m., a man was discovered with a gunshot wound "in the 1600-block of North Parkside Avenue." The 41-year-old man was pronounced dead at the hospital.

"At least 32 people were shot last weekend in Johnson’s Chicago, three of them fatally," Breitbart reported.

The Sun-Times maintains a database on Chicago's violent shootings, and it shows 303 people were killed in Chicago January 1, 2o23 through July 8, 2023.

Gun violence in Chicago has been a consistent problem that continues to get worse, despite some of the strictest gun-control laws in the nation.

Charles Lanfear, who is an assistant professor at the University of Cambridge’s Institute of Criminology, said, "We expected levels of exposure to gun violence to be high, but not this high. Our findings are frankly startling and disturbing."

Reports have stated that over half of residents in Chicago will see a shooting by the time they are 40 years old.
