37 Wounded, 9 Killed in Chicago Weekend Violence, Including Teen and Mexican Singing Star

The bloody violence in Chicago took no time off for Father’s Day as the final tally ended with 37 shot and 9 killed. The dead included a 17-year-old, shot with a rifle, and a Mexican man who was on his nation’s version of the TV show The Voice, shot three times in the head.

One of the last people killed during the weekend was a 17-year-old teen shot in front of a Catholic Church with what police claimed was a “high-powered rifle.”

The teen was shot by an assailant who drove up next to him and immediately opened fire, leaving “literally dozens of empty shell casings on the street,” according to Chief of Detectives Eugene Roy.

Chief Roy said the shooting was likely gang-related.

The Mexican community in the city was also shocked
