74 Shot, 12 Dead in Chicago Over Independence Day Weekend
Posted Monday, July 8th 2013 @ 3pm

A warm holiday weekend brought tragedy across Chicago as close to 100 people were victims of gun violence. 

Both a 5-year-old and a 7-year-old were wounded in separte shootings in different city parks. 

A drive by shooting near Altgeld Park left one dead and several injured.  

Another five were wounded on the South Side during a dispute between a landlord and tenants

Despite the spike in violence, last week the Chicago Police Department announced that crime is down from previous years.
