At Least 54 Shot, 10 DEAD In Chicago Gun Violence Last Weekend of August

There is of course no mainstream media coverage, no outrage from liberals or Black Lives Matter as the violence just continues to flow out of liberal Chicago.

At least 54 people were shot, and 10 of them had been killed, over the weekend in Chicago.

Among those wounded in shootings this weekend were two police officers, who were wounded while trying to disarm a suspect during a traffic stop in Homan Square. The suspect, 19-year-old Jeffon Williams, has been charged with seven counts of attempted murder and one count of aggravated assault of a police officer.

Meanwhile, one man was killed and four others were injured in a mass shooting Sunday at a pancake house dining tent in Morgan Park.

The police-involved incident happened around 2:30 a.m. in the 3300 block of West Polk Street, near Spaulding Avenue, when officers were conducting a traffic stop on a vehicle matching the description from a person with a gun call.

Officers saw a gun in the car from the outside, police said. They told the man to get out, but he refused and locked himself in, and officers broke the windows. There was a struggle, and the two officers were shot.

A third officer on the scene shot the suspect. The suspect was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, according to CPD.
