Two mass shootings shock Chicago
At least three people were killed and 40 were wounded in weekend shootings across Chicago.
There were two mass shootings overnight in Chicago — both in the West Side’s Lawndale neighborhood. The latest shooting happened at 18th and Keeler Avenue Sunday around 3:40 a.m. at a block party. Police said unknown suspects fired shots into a large group of people, CBS reported.
Before that, in the city of El Paso, a gunman opened fire Saturday morning in a shopping area packed with thousands of people. The attack killed 20 and wounded more than two dozen.
Hours later in Dayton, Ohio, a gunman wearing body armor and carrying extra magazines opened fire in a popular nightlife area, killing nine and injuring at least 26 people.
The El Paso shooting was being investigated as a possible hate crime as authorities worked to confirm whether a racist, anti-immigrant screed posted online shortly beforehand was written by the man arrested. Authorities identified the El Paso suspect as 21-year-old Patrick Crusius from Allen, the AP reported.
