Chicago police records show 44 people were shot on Sunday, including five who were killed.
In three hours beginning at 1:30 a.m., records show, 30 were shot and two killed in 10 incidents.
“The city of Chicago experienced a violent night,” Bureau of Patrol Chief Fred Waller said Sunday afternoon. “Some of these instances were targeted and were related to gang conflicts in those areas.”
In at least one incident, shooters opened fire into a crowded street party, Waller said.
Of the wounded who reported an age, the oldest was 62 and the youngest 11, police records show.
