Weekend gun violence in Chicago left five people dead and at least 43 others wounded, including an 8-year-old girl who was shot Sunday at a barbecue in Humboldt Park.
The girl was playing in the 1000 block of North Monticello Avenue about 3:55 p.m., when someone inside a blue Dodge Charger drove by and opened fire, Chicago police said. She was rushed to Lurie Children’s Hospital and was in good condition.
On Saturday, a 16-year-old boy was shot to death in Little Village on the Southwest Side.
William Granados was in the front seat of a vehicle about 1:53 a.m. in the 3400 block of West 24th Street when someone opened fire from the sidewalk, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
