“(sun-times) by early monday afternoon, at least 11 people had been killed and another 41 wounded since early friday evening. the death toll was the highest since 2015, when 12 people were killed. the total number of those shot, however, was still far below the 71 people wounded by gunfire over the 2016 holiday weekend.”

[GRA: “Farrrr below,” the sun-times blathers optimistically, but the blacks still have 17 hours to get 30 bullets delivered to tie the record. A warm night—it’s possible.]

“for the Memorial Day weekend total, the sun-times tracks incidents from 5 p.m. friday to 5 a.m. tuesday.

“the violence also came close to mayor Brandon Johnson’s doorstep as a woman was found stabbed to death less than two blocks from the first-term mayor’s west side home.

“gunfire rang out at north avenue beach during a fight friday afternoon, hours after city beaches officially opened for the summer, but no one was wounded.

“the holiday weekend that marks the unofficial start of summer has also historically marked the beginning of the seasonal uptick in gun violence — often concentrated on the city’s south and west sides. the 6th district on the south side had the most shooting victims with at least seven people, followed by the 11th district on the west side, where at least six people were shot.

That ratio of wounded to killed comports well with Ukraine.
