That’s correct- 49 shot in the city of Chicago this past weekend.

Peter Nickeas reported on the Chicago Tribune website this afternoon:

At least 49 people were shot, two of them fatally, since Friday afternoon in Chicago. Twenty-two people were shot Friday night into early Saturday and another 18 were shot late Saturday morning into Sunday.

The violent weekend comes on top of a 22 percent increase in shooting incidents so far this year. Through May 10, there were 627 shooting incidents, up from 516 for the same year-earlier period, the [Chicago Police] department said.

Last year saw shooting incidents rise to 2,084, up nearly 12 percent from 1,866 in 2013…

All this shooting, and it’s not even summer yet.
