This past weekend in Chicago was the most violent two-day weekend in the city since Father’s Day of 2013, according to data compiled by the Chicago Tribune.
By Monday morning, at least 365 people were victims of homicide in Chicago this year, according to the Chicago Tribune. The weekend was the most deadly of the year of 2015, outside of Fourth of July’s long and bloody holiday weekend.
Eight people were killed and at least 45 others were wounded in shootings from Friday evening to Monday morning, including a 14-year-old boy who died after being shot in the head.
On Saturday night, 14-year-old Tyjuan Poindexter begged his mother to let him go outside to play basketball with some friends. His mother relented and told him to be careful, but he never made it back home.
Poindexter was outside in the 4400 block of South Greenwood in the Kenwood neighborhood at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday with a 15-year-old boy when shots rang out from a passing vehicle, police said.
The 14-year-old was shot in the head and died at the scene, and the 15-year-old was struck twice in the leg and taken to the University of Chicago Comer Children's Hospital in stable condition.
Witnesses told police there was an altercation at a nearby park before the shooting, but it is unclear if the altercation was related to the attack.
