The figure is down from previous year, when 62 people were shot, according to the Sun-Times.

A 52-year-old man was killed in a domestic-related shooting at 1:32 p.m. Sunday in the West Side Austin neighborhood. The man was in an alley in the 4900 block of South Seeley Avenue when he heard shots and felt pain. The boy's name had not been released late Monday, with the Cook County medical examiner's office saying they had yet to notify next of kin.

The teen and the two other people were standing outside when the shooter approached and opened fire. "He was totally disabled", said Deryl Young, Morris' uncle. His body was found a block from his home. No one is in custody in this shooting as well. He got himself to Mount Sinai Hospital with a gunshot wound to the right hip, and his condition was stabilized. The man was walking on the sidewalk in the 5000 block of South Drexel Boulevard when he heard shots and felt pain. Both had been shot in the head and were pronounced dead at the scene. The victim was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where his condition was stabilized. "I wish it would just end already, this violence is not necessary".

Numerous weekend's shootings were clustered on Monday, with 28 people shot between Friday and Sunday, the Trib notes.

This year's holiday weekend was less violent than last year's. Twelve people were killed and 43 wounded over 2015's holiday.

Chicago reported the shootings occurred between Friday afternoon and early Tuesday morning. The other two - the fatal shooting Saturday of a 16-year-old boy in a gangway in Lawndale and the fatal shooting Sunday of an 18-year-old man in Longwood Manor - were the result of the type of street violence that characterized bloody holiday weekends in previous years.

That happens to be about the same number of people who have been shot in the city so far this year: 1,338, according to Chicago Sun-Times data.

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi (goo-lee-EHL'-mee) said Tuesday morning that the statistics run from 6 p.m. Friday through midnight Monday. Four illegal guns were seized and more than 70 traffic citations were issued.
