Five killed, dozens shot in Chicago's 'violent night'

The most recent shooting happened in the early hours of Monday morning when a man in a ski-mask fired two shots at people stood outside their home. These shooting deaths are largely classified as homicides - not murders (i.e., legally unjustified killings) - as Giuliani claimed.

"We have a heavy heart", Emanuel said at a news conference today.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson planned a 11 a.m. Monday news conference to discuss the violence.

The spate of violence erupted just after midnight, and two people were killed and 28 others were hurt in shootings before 3 a.m.

Chicago Police say over a 24 hour period, 34 people were shot and five died.

Forty-four people were shot across the Midwestern US city of Chicago Sunday, US media reported, with five killed in a wave of violence police branded "totally unacceptable".

Most of the shootings are connected to gang violence in the city. "Somebody knows who did it", said Johnson, his voice rising.

While these seemingly harmless comments could mean several different things, it is very hard to tell what will happen now. Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has also been linked with Real, but did attend training with the Blues on Monday.

"They take advantage of that opportunity and they shoot into a crowd, no matter who they hit", he said. The police made nearly no arrests during the melee, preferring to avoid confrontation. "There are too many guns on the street, too many people with criminal records on the street, and there is a shortage of values about what is right and what is wrong", he added.

"I hear people holding us accountable all the time", he continued.

It's good that their Police Chief is finally willing to stand in front of reporters and admit that they've got a gang problem, but that doesn't do anything to address the underlying issues.

"They have a moral responsibility to speak up, so there could be legal accountability for those actions", Emanuel said. "Who's buying that given what we just witnessed this weekend?" he stated.

Ford said he was not opposing Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) outright, but clarified that the president should not consider the city a "Trump-Free Zone" - which Emanuel declared it in 2017. Giuliani credited McCarthy for being an "architect" of the NYPD's CompStat program that helps to track crimes, allowing for police to better allocate their resources to high-crime areas. "Is it any wonder this past weekend witnessed more than 60 shootings in the city?" he said.

Meantime, Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and IL attorney general Lisa Madigan recently celebrated the issuance of a 232-page draft consent decree for the Chicago Police Department, possibly the longest police consent decree ever written.

According to a authorities, roughly 5,500 guns have been taken off the streets this year and shootings have decreased compared to last year.
