3 dead, at least 21 injured in Chicago weekend shootings

In a wave of shooting across Chicago over the weekend, three people were killed and at least 21 injured, the Sun-Times Media Wire reported through ABC 7 Chicago on Monday.

This comes after the previous weekend saw an identical fatality and casualty count as a result of shootings across America’s third most populous city. Notably, according to the April 1 crime statistics report from the Chicago Police Department, murders in the first three months of this year rose 33% over the same period last year while shootings increased by 43%.

In a Sunday afternoon shooting, a 7-year-old girl was killed and her father, 28, was seriously injured as the pair were getting food at a McDonald’s drive-thru in the Homan Square neighborhood, police said, according to the report.

The girl, Jaslyn Adams, sustained multiple shots and was transported by police officers to Stroger Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said.

Her father, Jontae, was struck in the torso and transported to the same hospital, where his condition was listed as serious, police said.

Police, according to the report, said the shooting was thought to be gang-related. Less than three hours later, two individuals were shot in their car at a Popeyes in Humboldt Park, which investigators reportedly believe is linked to the McDonald’s shooting.

Another fatality in Chicago this weekend occurred in Austin on the West Side Sunday night, when a man was fatally shot and another was wounded.

The two men were standing on a sidewalk that night when a male in a silver SUV opened fire on the pair, police said.

One man, 43, sustained a gunshot to the chest and was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office, according to the report, has yet to name the man.

The other man, 22, was shot in his right leg and taken to Mt. Sinai in good condition, police said.

The final fatality from this past weekend’s Chicago shootings occurred Friday evening, when a person entered a Lawndale business and started unleashing gunfire, police said.

A man, 18, was shot in the chest and face and taken to Mt. Sinai, where he was pronounced dead, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as Jawon L. Ward.

A woman, 44, was struck in the shoulder and back and was transported in good condition to Mt. Sinai, police said.
