Several shot over the weekend

15 people were shot across Chicago between Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

At least one of those shootings, in the Austin neighborhood, was fatal.

A man was shot in the West Rogers Park neighborhood late Saturday night, and ran into a nearby Walgreen’s for help.

He was taken to St. Francis Hospital in serious condition.

Some West Rogers Park residents say they’re very concerned about the recent violence in their typically peaceful neighborhood.

Just last Thursday, a man was pushed off a bridge into the Chicago River near Lincoln and Peterson.

That happened just a few blocks from Saturday night’s shooting in the 6000 block of North Sacramento Avenue.

    Several: being more than two but fewer than many in number or kind.

    15 is NOT several. 15 is many.
