Interim Police Supt. Terry Hillard says people in government must do more to keep children safe from the kind of gun violence that wounded two young people in the Washington Park neighborhood over the weekend.
Between 4 p.m. Wednesday and 1 a.m. Thursday, at least nine people were shot all around the city.
A woman at a bus stop near the University of Chicago was shot multiple times Tuesday night in the Woodlawn neighborhood.
Police are investigating two separate shootings on the city’s South Side over the weekend, in which both of the victims were teenagers.
