More than 2,000 people have been shot so far in Chicago, with no relief in sight

Chicago has already recorded 2,000 people shot this year, eclipsing the 2019 numbers that show a total of 2151 people shot – twenty-three people were shot yesterday, Tuesday, with four of them dying.

Around 1:40 a.m. two males, 23 and 25, were shot in a drive-by shooting which resulted in non life threatening injuries to both.

Around noon, a 20 year old man was shot once in the chest by a group of unknown shooters, the man died a short time later at a hospital.

At 1 pm, a 16-year-old girl was wounded when she was shot in an alley by an unknown male suspect, her condition is unknown.

Around 1:13 pm, another shooting took the life of a 17 year old young man, he was hit twice by gunfire, and died at a hospital.

There were at least 14 people shot by unknown suspects at about 6:30pm, in a drive-by shooting at a funeral. The victims were walking from inside the funeral when gunfire started; coincidently, the funeral was for a person who had been killed in Chicago in a shooting last week.

Later in the evening, another shooting hit two men, killing one. The first victim was a 32-year-old man who is reportedly in fair condition, the second victim was a 30 year old man who was shot in the chest, and died as a result. The two men were reportedly sitting on a porch when shot.

Yet another drive-shooting occurred after that one, this time killing a 28-year-old man, who was shot in the chest.
