At least 41 people have been shot in Chicago in the past day.

Chicago, IL - At least 41 people have been shot in Chicago since 11 a.m. Saturday through Sunday morning.

At least three of the people who were shot have died.

Chicago Tribune reports that four people were shot in the 1600 block of South Avers in Lawndale.

Eight people were shot in the 1300 block of West 76th Street in Gresham.

Six people were shot in the 1300 block of South Millard in Lawndale.

Three women were shot in the 4700 block of West Gladys Avenue, in West Garfield Park.

Four people were shot in the 900 block of North Karlov Avenue in West Humboldt Park.

Two men were shot in the 6800 block of Wood Street.

Numerous more people were injured or killed in individual shootings.

16 of the victims are teenagers according to Chicago Tribune. 12 were age 17 or younger.

Many of the victims were not the intended targets of the shootings, but were caught in the crossfire as the gunmen and intended targets escaped unscathed.

The shootings overwhelmed Mount Sinai Hospitals' emergency department, resulting in them closing down to accepting any new patients.

Chicago Tribune talked to a local resident who talked about how brazen the shootings have become.

“If they shoot you, they don’t even run,” he told Chicago Tribune. “They just walk away, they ain’t trying to run.”

Chicago PD will be holding a press conference on Sunday to discuss the shootings.

Where's the throngs of liberals whining about gun control? Demanding that all those guns be registered? Wanting to see the background checks on each individual with a gun? Oh yeah ... they're all stolen. Even the liberals couldn't care less about these underserved communities in their own states. Survival of the fittest, right?

Let them all kill each other. Keep the police out of those neighborhoods and let Darwin run its course. Eventually only the good will be left standing.

On Monday 8/6 the actual numbers of shootings in Chicago rose to 63 with 10 dead ( so far) from Friday night to Sunday evening this past weekend. I have lost all sympathies for this community. I know there are good people there but collectively they should be ashamed of amount of the black on black crime that permeates this city on an ongoing basis. With 71% out of wedlock childbirth it is at this point that is the genesis of the myriad problems which plague this community. Until this thug mentality culture changes drastically the stats will continue. Chicago is just the current front runner.....You can see similar stats in St Louis, Baltimore, DC, Atlanta, Detroit, Philadelphia, Camden,etc.......When this occurs you notice you dont hear a peep from Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson or BLM.
