A 17-year-old girl was killed and five other people, including an 11-year-old boy, were wounded less than two hours later in a Lawndale neighborhood shooting on the Southwest Side, police said. "Our souls are burdened".

"As you may be aware, the city of Chicago experienced a violent night".

Giuliani also falsely claimed that Chicago had "63 murders this weekend". At least 11 people have died as a result. Residents said after the shooting that the situation is so bad, children are being kept indoors for their safety.

The ad concludes with images of striking teachers demonstrating in front of City Hall, with LaRaviere proclaiming, "But in February, Chicago gets a chance to tell him what he's been telling us: Get the hell out".

A candidate running to replace Rahm Emanuel as mayor of Chicago has rejected tweets by President Donald Trump's lawyer in which he offers his support and sharply criticizes Emanuel. Giuliani, referring to him as "Jerry", called him a "policing genius".

Even a music festival turned deadly during Chicago's dark weekend.

Emanuel didn't immediately respond to McCarthy or Giuliani.

CBS News called it "one of the most violent weekends on record".

Johnson noted that homicides in the city are down by around 20 percent from previous year. "It's the same people pulling the triggers". "It's the same individuals that continually commit those crimes".

Trump Touts Iran Sanctions
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu , like Trump a long-time opponent of the accord, congratulated him on the new sanctions. Iran took a series of measures to try to limit the effect of U.S. sanctions on their economy over the weekend. "That's the ask.

Three or more victims have been wounded in seven of Sunday's shooting incidents, including a single shooting in the South Side Gresham neighborhood left eight people wounded, including four teenage girls.

Tio Hardiman, one of the organizers of last week's rally, said members of the black community need to take the initiative by mediating truces between gangs.

That portion of the ad features images of people lined up on the street in front of a sign advertising apartments, a public housing building being torn down, two shuttered Chicago schools and a pair of crying children being consoled in front of another school.

Most of the shootings occurred between midnight Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday, at a targeted block party, a funeral and other gatherings.

The 55-year-old woman suffered a gunshot wound to her leg and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where her condition had stabilized, police said.

Chicago ended 2017 with fewer homicides, 650, than 2016, when there were 771.

Although the drop was significant, the total still exceeded the combined the number of killings in New York City and Los Angeles, which are the two U.S. cities bigger than Chicago.

McCarthy said the blame for the bloodshed "lies squarely with Rahm Emanuel's weak leadership and failed policies", not with Chicago Democrats as a whole.
