Violent Monday Leaves 12 Shot

It was a violent Monday night in Chicago after four people were killed and at least eight people injured in shootings across the city.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday morning, Mayor Rahm Emanuel says there are too many guns, and not enough values.

Listen to WLS Reporter Nick Gale’s report here:


“We have way too many guns on the streets of Chicago with too little values and the penalties that don’t match the values of the City of Chicago,” Emanuel said. “That gang bangers can get access to guns at will without a value system and without a sense of consequence and penalties, to indiscriminately shoot at a car with a grandmother, a mother a child and two individuals.”

Monday night’s shootings follow a violent weekend that saw five killed including a police involved shooting and 53 wounded.
