CHICAGO -- This Mother's Day weekend is turning out to be a violent one on the streets of Chicago.
At least six people are dead and dozens more hurt in shootings around the city.
Sunday morning, a 35-year-old man was shot to death in a vehicle on Lake Shore Drive. Police say another car pulled up and opened fire. The man was hit in the back and the car crashed into a pole. Overnight saw another shooting, in the 5200 block of South Kolin Avenue. Police say 58-year-old Andres Rivera was eating dinner when a bullet ripped the front door of his home and struck him in the head. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
Also, Saturday night, at a funeral home in the 400 block of South Cicero Avenue, police found a 26-year-old man shot to death.
The weekend violence has been frustrating for activists and groups that help survivors.
“For a mother to wake up and her son is dead on Mother’s Day. You know that is very disturbing. It hurts. It’s painful,” said community activist Andrew Holmes. “For a mother to carry a child for nine months, and it only takes seconds to take her child’s life, no matter how old that baby is, that mother’s going through a lot.”
Police say they have made no arrests.
