Father’s Day Bloody Massacre: 3-year-old boy killed, 14 killed, 102 shot in chicago.
Fourteen people, including five children, were killed as over 100 people were shot in a wave of gunfire in Chicago over the Father’s Day weekend. This is the city’s highest number of victims shot in a single weekend this year 2020.
A 3-year-old boy was among the victims shot, who the police said was fatally shot on Saturday as he was in a car with his father in the south Austin neighborhood.
Police reported that the boy’s 27-year-old father was the intended target when someone fired shots at the vehicle, but he refused to cooperate with the police detectives. Community leaders are offering a reward of $10,000 for any information in the boy’s killing.
The other victims included a 13-year-old girl who died after being shot in the neck while watching TV in her home, and two boys, ages 16 and 17, were killed in a separate shooting on Saturday.
Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said that the police were working hard to track down people responsible for the violence in several Chicago communities. He said “gangs, guns and drugs” are the common pattern in those shootings.
“Good men throughout this city should be celebrating with their families on a beautiful day, but instead, a number of Chicagoans will be spending Father’s Day grieving the loss of their children,” .
Total of 102 people were shot across Chicago from Friday evening to Monday morning — the highest number of shooting victims in a single weekend this year, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
