CHICAGO — The City of Chicago saw 19 shooting incidents over the Mother’s Day weekend, resulting in 24 victims and six deaths.
On Monday, CPD Supt. David Brown and Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan held a media availability. During that time, Brown discussed the current year-to-date crime statistics and, what he called, notable arrests. Those arrests were primarily of juveniles with previous arrests on their records.
The statistics Brown shared included a 6.28% decrease in homicides, a 13.25% decrease in shootings, and a 5% rise in carjackings.
This press conference came on the heels of several violent incidents across the city including two wounded in a South Side shooting, a 27-year-old woman killed on the West Side, a violent armed robbery in Lincoln Park, and a string of assaults in Logan Square, among other reported crimes in Chicago.
Deenihan noted no arrests had been made in any of the weekend’s homicides and requested any and all information the public may have. Tips leading to charges can lead to rewards of up to $15,000.
